Pepperoni bread (aka pepperoni roll or stromboli) has always been a special treat for me. In my Italian family in southern New Jersey, we all savored pepperoni bread!This recipe makes enough dough for 2 loaves of pepperoni bread (you’ll have to double the fillings though). So, my recommendation is to either double the “fillings” or save the other half of the dough to make a homemade pizza!

This is my favorite lasagne. I’ve tweaked many different recipes over the years, but always came back to the same conclusion. If you want your lasagne to taste like you’re in Italy - a classic, thick, tomato-based bolognese, with a creamy béchamel sauce - there are no shortcuts to making it. It’ll take time. It’s a process. It’s amazing.
