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 luncheon meats and make a stromboli. Ham and Swiss cheese would make a great combination. Or maybe salami and provolone cheese. The possibilities are endless.
This pizza and pepperoni braid recipe would work great for appetizers for football Sunday or if you’re having a large number of people over you can make a few different flavors. Either way your family is going to love this recipe and you’re going to love how easy it is to prepare.

Helpful Kitchen Tools
- Pizza Cutter or a sharp knife.
