Pepperoni Pizza Twist

Pepperoni Pizza Twist

1 loaf frozen bread dough, defrosted room temperature
1 Tbsp. corn meal
1 Tbsp. flour
2/3 cup pizza sauce
1/2 cup pepperoni
8 oz. mozzarella cheese, cut into strips
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan
1 egg
1/2 tsp. garlic powder

Heat oven to 400° F.

Cut bread dough in half lengthwise. Spread a large work surface with cornmeal. Place both pieces of dough on work surface and dust lightly with flour. Roll dough to about 4 in. wide and about 22 - 24 in. in length. Spoon pizza sauce in the middle of the dough and top with pepperoni and cheese. Pinch dough around filling and seal edges.

On a greased cookie sheet, twist dough around and form the pizza roll. Whisk egg and garlic powder and brush pizza twist liberally. Sprinkle on Parmesan cheese. Bake pizza twist for 25 - 30 minutes, or until golden brown.
