My mother-in-law always makes pepperoni bread. I can not think of a time when it wasn’t something she made when she came to visit us. Her pepperoni bread reminds me of pizza, but with no sauce. Yes, it is amazing and we all love it and I dip it in homemade pizza sauce. But, with kids dipping in pizza sauce can lead to a mess.
So I changed things up a bit from her recipe and made it my own. My homemade pizza bread recipe has all of the pizza ingredients we love all wrapped up, sauce included. The first time I made this easy pizza recipe for the kids they loved it. Each time that we have made it since the first time, we have changed up the pizza toppings that we have used.
