Turkey Pepperoni Bundles

I play around a lot with pizza dough....it's just such a useful thing with immense possibilities.  Anywho, I wanted to make a quick snackum for game night and this turned out nicely.  I probably didn't need the sprinkle of coarse salt across the top of the bundles....the pepperoni added plenty of salt.

You can use a refrigerated pizza dough from the store instead of making your own if you're in a hurry...but honestly pizza dough whips together really quickly....easiest yeast bread ever.

A side of marinara can be used for dipping, but I was happy with the rolls as is....I'm a bit of a bread nut though.  ;)


Turkey Pepperoni Bundles

Pizza Crust Dough
Turkey Pepperoni
Coarse Sea Salt
Egg White, lightly beaten

Divide your pizza dough into two portions.  Press one portion of dough out into a rough rectangle.  Place your pepperoni on the dough in columns, leaving a little space between each column.  Using a pizza cutter or knife, cut the dough between the columns.  Roll each bundle up pinching the ends together to close the bundle off.  Place on a greased cookie sheet.  Repeat with remaining bundles and the second portion of dough.

Let rise in a warm place for 45 minutes to an hour.  A great spot is the oven with a mug/pan of steaming water in the bottom.

Brush the tops and side of the bundles with the egg white and sprinkle coarse salt across the tops.  Bake at 375 for 25 to 30 minutes or until rolls have a nicely browned look.  Cool on racks.

A couple more pics....
A little interior view of the goodies.  To add a little extra to the bundles, tuck in some sliced mozzarella cheese on top of the pepperoni before you roll them up.

This is how your dough should look before rolling up the bundles.  Don't forget to flour the surface your dough is sitting on otherwise rolling up the bundles can be a bit of a bear.....think super, sticky mess....cough....not that I know anything about that.  ;)
