"Picture Me Cooking" Pepperoni Bread

Audrey just received Picture Me Cooking and she already loves it. All of the recipes have a spot for you to place a picture of your child helping cook. Audrey immediately placed a post card of Elmo in one of the spots. We started on another recipe so we could start filling up the book with pictures of Audrey cooking. Here is our first attempt:

Pepperoni Bread

  • 1 loaf frozen bread dough, thawed (we made a batch in the bread machine)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup sliced pepperoni
  • 1 cup shredded cheese
  • 4 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tbsp oregano
  • Pizza or tomato sauce
Lightly grease baking sheet. Preheat oven to 350°F. Roll dough into shape of a rectangle. Brush with beaten egg. Cover the dough with pepperoni. Sprinkle with cheese, Parmesan, and oregano. Have your cooking buddy help you roll up the dough firmly like a jelly roll or wrap. Pinch the seam to seal it. Place the dough seal side down on a lightly greased baking sheet. Ask your cooking buddy to bake for 35 to 40 minutes. Bread will be golden. Have your cooking buddy remove the bread from the oven. Let it cool for 5 minutes then slice it and serve with pizza sauce for dipping. 

Audrey's Tasks:
  1. Help make bread dough
  2. Spread pepperoni on dough
  3. Spread cheese on pepperoni
Mom's Tasks:
  1. Help make bread dough
  2. Spread dough with beaten egg
  3. Roll up dough
  4. Bake
This was a big hit with Audrey. Of course you could add any pizza toppings you like. A great finger food for your next child centered event! Take pictures so they can remember cooking with you!

Perfect pepperoni placement.
