Pizza and Pepperoni Braid
Sometimes we all need an easy recipe to make for dinner for our families. This Pizza and Pepperoni Braid is just that…EASY! And you can have dinner on the table in under 30 minutes. Add a side salad and dinner is served.
One of the things I like most about this recipe is that you can customize it to your families favorite pizza toppings. My hubby loves chopped peppers and mushrooms, so I think the next time I make this I might make and extra one with his favorites.
Or why not use your favorite cold cuts! I’m thinking a ham and Swiss cheese would also be really delicious. Leftovers heat up great too! So my hubby can take the leftovers to work with him the next day.

Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut the dough into strips on both sides of the toppings.
Fold one strip over the toppings and then fold one strip from the opposite side over the first strip.
