Pepperoni Rolls

READY IN: 1hr 2mins
Recipe by Color Guard Mom

I got this out of a 1988 local newspaper recipe booklet. They are quite yummy and travel well. The yeast is a standard packet of yeast. I guessed at the servings and the active and passive work times - it's been a couple years since I've made them.

Haven't tried yet. This is the recipe I am looking for with no cheese or sauce. My family loves them this way. I used to get them at an Italian bakery but now they have cheese and sauce. Will rate after trying.
