I just threw all the ingredients in my bread machine, put it on the dough cycle, then baked it in a regular bread pan. It made a beautiful, big fluffy brown loaf with little red flecks of pepperoni throughout. I didn't have any provolone, so I substituted 1/4 c. parmesan--also used olive oil in place of margarine. Oh, and I substituted 1 c. white whole wheat flour for one of the cups of flour, and used regular bread flour for the rest. The taste is fantastic! I was worried my kids wouldn't eat it, but they both gobbled it up. thanks for the recipe! I'll be making it again.

WOW! and YUM! Delicious and easy. Perfect lunch on a cold day. I included the prolovone and added a T of Emeril's italian essence.

Wow! This is EXCELLENT! I made it using fast-rising yeast and a round casserole dish. I also didn't have provolone available and just used regular cheddar. It is PRETTY and perfect. I think HOT water is the key. Quick and EASY. Thank you :)
