So this weekend take a warm piece of sourdough bread glazed with Parmesan and garlic butter, oozing with melted cheese and pepperoni, and dip it in warm pizza sauce! Yum!

Ingredients

  • 1 unsliced round loaf sourdough bread
  • 12-16 ounces mozzarella or Provolone cheese, thinly sliced
  • 1 (3.5 ounce) package pepperoni, halved
  • 3 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasonings
  • 2 Tablespoons Parmesan cheese
  • pizza/marinara sauce for dipping

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cut the bread lengthwise and widthwise without cutting through the bottom crust. This can be a little tricky going the second way but the bread is very forgiving.
  • Place bread on a foil-lined baking sheet and insert cheese slices and pepperoni between cuts. Combine butter, garlic powder, and Italian seasonings. Drizzle or brush over bread with a pastry brush. Sprinkle bread with Parmesan cheese.
  • Wrap bread completely in foil and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Unwrap the bread and bake 10 more minutes, or until cheese is melted and pepperoni is a little crispy.
