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.

  4. This was amazing! I used 2 Pillsbury Refrigerated French Bread in the tube and was very impressed by the taste. I found the recipe to be a little lacking in instructions so googled the recipe to find a longer version. Kids loved this, too.

  5. What kind of bread dough/brand name? thanks they look so tasty!

  6. I”ve been making this for several years now and love it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Time consuming to put together but very well worth it. Time consuming for me due to my health issues. Even the leftovers are good. I don’t do olives and I chop up my pepperoni in at least 1/4 circle size. Sometimes I add chop up onion and I’ve even added sausage. What ever you like on your pizza. Make sure and don’t over do it. It’s possible to put to much in these. Try it and you can always make changes the next time you make it.
