It was great! I only had sliced pepperoni and I chopped it. The final result in the bread was tiny pepperoni flecks throughout vs the bigger pieces like the photo shows. The bread was tasty. I didn't have plain oregano so I used italian seasoning and it was really good. Initially I was worried that the pepperoni flavor would be strong but it wasn't. It was the perfect way to give the bread a little extra flavor. We served it hot with butter. Yum! This recipe is a keeper.

I thought this was a great recipe. I used cheddar instead of mozzarella (since it's all I had at the time) and used a whole cup to increase the cheeziness factor. Otherwise, I kept everything else the same. The bread came out soft and chewy in the center and crusty on the outside. So yummy! The pepperoni has a tendancy to shrink up a little bit in the bread during the baking, so I might cut it in larger pieces next time so it's more visible...but the fantastic pepperoni flavor is still definitely there...thanks for sharing!
