Detroit Pepperoni Bread:

Meijer Brand Cooking Spray
Meijer Brand Frozen Bread Dough
Meijer Brand Pepperoni
Mrs. Dash Italian (unless there's a Meijer brand)
One raw egg scrambled
A bbq-sauce brush (a cleaned Dollar Store paint brush)
Greased cookie sheet (Meijer Brand Olive Oil adds aroma)
Oven set at 350F

Thaw overnight (or about 8 hours) one or two frozen loaves in a covered bowl but spray cooking spray in the bowl and over the frozen bread dough and cover with plastic-wrap.

Sprinkle a pinch of flour over your work area and smash a thawed loaf with your hands
(one loaf at a time).
Try to spread or roll the dough into a 4” x 8” rectangle (takes about 6 minutes)
Mix the raw egg well in a coffee cup and brush the raw egg lightly onto the flat bread dough surface.
Sprinkle some Mrs. Dash Italian onto the bread dough surface.
Arrange pepperonis in rows edge-to-edge from top-to-bottom without over lapping pepperonis.
Roll dough turn and brush a little more egg onto the un-egged dough.
Roll again until it’s completely rolled.
Place the rolled dough on a greased baking sheet with the seam side down.
Pat the bread dough down so that the loaf isn’t rounded and brush with egg again.
Bake at 350F for 30 mins.
It's required to use ONE cooking sheet per loaf, so use 2 sheets side-by-side for 2 loaves.
The bread will usually over-rise in the oven and then fall to a normal size when cooled.

Adding sauce will make the bread explode in the oven because sauce boils and creates steam.
Adding cheese will weigh it down inside and the loaf will become hollow.

Forget the sauce and cheese because it’s really all about the pepperoni.

I've been making pepperoni bread for years, but it isnt pepperoni bread without the cheese. ;-) I never put sauce on mine. Just brush with egg, sprinkle with Italian seasoning, add pepperoni and cheese-roll up. We used to have an awesome Italian bakery nearby when I lived in Ohio--and they used cheese.

I also make this. I use dough made from my bread maker (pizza dough). I roll it out to a rectangle, lay pepperoni and cheese (either yellow Amer or provolone), roll it up like a jelly roll, lay seam side down and bake on a cookie sheet. I brush the top with egg and sometimes sprinkle sesame seeds.

I made French Bread yesterday using my own homemade Italian Sausage. It's not in a casing and fried before time. I rolled the dough out, sprinkle with crumbled sausage, roll it up, let it rest 30 mins, then into a 450deg oven for about 30mins. The dough is basically pizza dough.

Try Genoa salami or Canadian bacon. Genoa salami isn't your run of the mill salami, it's a lot milder and different, and sliced Canadian bacon is more like a deluxe ham than bacon. Yummo!
