  • “I just threw all the ingredients in my bread machine, put it on the dough cycle, then baked it in a regular bread pan. It made a beautiful, big fluffy brown loaf with little red flecks of pepperoni throughout. I didn’t have any provolone, so I substituted 1/4 c. parmesan–also used olive oil in place of margarine. Oh, and I substituted 1 c. white whole wheat flour for one of the cups of flour, and used regular bread flour for the rest. The taste is fantastic! I was worried my kids wouldn’t eat it, but they both gobbled it up. thanks for the recipe! I’ll be making it again.”

  • “WOW! and YUM! Delicious and easy. Perfect lunch on a cold day.I included the prolovone and added a T of Emeril’s italian essence.”

  • “Wow!This is EXCELLENT!I made it using fast-rising yeast and a round casserole dish. I also didn’t have provolone available and just used regular cheddar.It is PRETTY and perfect.I think HOT water is the key.Quick and EASY.Thank you :)”

  • “I loved the bread.It has a great taste and texture.I only changed a few things.I added 1 tbs on tomato paste, 1/4c finely chopped green pepper, and 1 tbs of Italian seasonings for a true pepperoni pizza taste.I used my bread machine and it was wonderful.Thanks”
