  • 24 Rhodes Bread Frozen Dinner Rolls
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Italian Seasoning Mix
  • 1 tablespoon fresh garlic, minced
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup Colby Jack cheese
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cups mini pepperoni - or regular pepperoni cut into quarters
  • 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • Cooking Spray
  • Tomato Sauce, for dipping


Thawing the Rolls

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Take the rolls out of the freezer and set them onto a baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
  • Take the rolls out of the freezer and set them onto a baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
  • Put the baking sheet with the rolls into the refrigerator overnight (or during the daytime).
    The rolls need at 8-10 hours in the refrigerator.
  • Remove the rolls from the refrigerator. If they have not doubled in size, let them rest at room temperature until they do.

Making the Pizza Bread

  • Preheat the oven to 350-degrees F.
  • Grease a bundt pan really, really, really well. I cannot overstate this. If you do not grease the pan REALLY well, your pizza bread won't come out.
  • Once the rolls are thawed (see above), cut them into quarters and place them into a large mixing bowl.
  • Drizzle the olive oil over all the dough.
  • After that, add the Italian seasoning mix, minced garlic, cheeses and pepperoni
  • Use a spoonula to mix everything all together.
  • Spoon the dough mixture into the prepared pan.
  • Bake for 30 minutes until the pizza bread is cooked through and the top is golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and use a butter knife to gently go around the edges of the pan to help loosen the pan.
  • Finally, invert onto a cutting board or serving plate.Serve hot with warm tomato sauce for dipping.


If you do not have Italian Seasoning on hand, use this combination:
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic (or garlic powder)
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion power
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Note: If you do not have a bundt pan, you can make this in a 9x11 pan instead.
