Pepperoni Garbage Bread

(15 Votes)
YIELDS
12 slices
COOK TIME
30 Min

Don't let the name fool you. Our Pepperoni Garbage Bread is named for the fact that you can throw whatever you want inside. Use last night's leftovers or anything you have in the fridge and enjoy!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (13.8-ounce) package refrigerated pizza crust
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup pepperoni slices (about 32 slices)
  • 1 (12-ounce) jar roasted red peppers, drained and lightly patted dry, then cut into thin strips
  • 1 cup fresh spinach
  • Garlic powder for sprinkling
  • Cooking spray
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Unroll pizza dough onto baking sheet. Sprinkle cheese evenly over dough. Layer with pepperoni, red peppers, and spinach. Sprinkle with garlic powder. Roll dough up jelly roll-style and fold ends under to close. Lightly spray with cooking spray.
  3. Bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until golden. Let cool 5 minutes, then slice and serve.
Notes
  • Feel free to add any leftover veggies, cheese, or cooked chicken or meat you may have on hand!
     
  • Serve with warm pizza sauce and a side salad. We'd like to suggest our crunchy, delicious Caesar salad!

When I lived in Upstate NY I worked at a deli and we made garbage bread all the time. We used up our end pieces (ends left after slicing the item) and would use them up that way. Each bread was different depending on what ends we had. This item sold out as fast as we could put them out. I made a few at home and it tasted so good.

I have made this twice and both were delicious. The first time I omitted the spinach. The second time I covered the dough with a thin layer of pizza sauce, added the mozzarella and pepperoni, shredded leftover Buffalo Chicken ( make sure to take all the skin off to prevent it being greasy), a small can of sliced black olives, and a small handful of mild pickled pepper slices. Rolled it up, sprinkled the roll with a very thin coating of garlic powder and a slight dusting of Italian Seasoning. Really great tasting and low cost.

This was fantastic! I added Fresh Mushrooms. I can't wait to make this again and try different ingredients.

I first tried this for a 4th of July party in 2013 and it was an instant hit! EVERYONE wanted the recipe! I've made it for my craft group several times and everyone wants more. Thanks for your many scrumptious recipes.

I make this all the time. We Italians call it Stromboli. I use fresh Rosemary & Thyme, Genoa Salami, sharp Provolone & Mozzarella or 3-5 cheese blend. Roasted red peppers. I also use the regular store bought dough. Actually you can use anything you like. Any cold cut that is your favorite will do. And any pizza toppings you like work well.

It was so good! BUT refridgerated pizza dough is high in sodium (at least the stuff I could find) and it didn't seem as big as it was supposed to be. I suppose I made it wrong, but it was my first go at it. Can it be made with pizza dough made from scratch, or a dry mix?

I made this with Pillsbury 'Artisan' pizza dough and it was delicious!

Never liked peppers. - How about Mushrooms & Anchovies?

I think you need pizza sauce ,onions, & mushrooms with it that would hit the spot

Look at the "notes" section.

I'm thinking "garbage" refers to "whatever you have, just throw it in" . . . that's what a "garbage" salad is to me . .

Instead of pepperoni I am going to use salami and ham! Thanks Mr food for all your great recipes! My friends thank you too! They love your site too!

What a great idea! That's something that will make dinner special, and easy, too. It's better than store bought.

This sounds so good. I love pepperoni used in any way.

sounds so good and simple why didn't I think of that
