These are the amazingly unique pepperoni rolls found in almost all convenience stores in West Virginia and Southwestern PA. A slightly sweet fluffy dough with spicy pepperoni makes for a delicious treat!
I really like the sweetness of the dough in contrast with the pepperoni, Try adding a bit of shredded mozzarella cheese with the pepperoni, and sprinkle a little garlic powder/salt on top of rolls before baking. I also baked them at 375 for 15 min., that seem to do the trick. Sausage and peppers might be a great variation. I'm keeping the dough recipe as a keeper, thanks again - 03 Mar 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I love this recipe. The only things I did differently are the following: I added a little bit of mozzarella cheese to each roll, I cut the sugar in half (hubby didn't like them so sweet, but I thought they tasted good), and I added minced garlic to the dough. None of the changes I made were necessary, but I feel they made the rolls taste better in the end. These pepperoni rolls keep well and warm up well so I appreciate that this recipe makes 20. Fantastic! *Edit: I took another reviewer's advice and brushed the tops of the rolls with egg and sprinkled them with garlic powder and oregano. This made the rolls look so professional. My husband told me that when he took them in to work for his lunch, he had someone ask him where he'd bought them. - 02 Nov 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
