PEPPERONI PIZZA TWIST

I first tasted this Pepperoni Pizza Twist back in college at one of those Pampered Chef parties and had to get the recipe. It’s simple but has great flavor. I always stuff more pepperoni than is called for because my family likes it that way. It’s hearty enough to be dinner but the way we roll it’s usually an appetizer!

My husband informed me that I braided this wrong and he’s right! Although it doesn’t really matter but the ends should go under the other ends.
