Ingredients
  

  • 1 (16 oz) disk prepared pizza dough (I used Trader Joe’s)
  • 5 oz thinly sliced pepperoni
  • cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ¼ teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • For dipping: marinara sauce

Instructions
 

  • Remove dough from the refrigerator and place on the counter for 30 minutes (this will make it easier to roll out).
  • Lightly dust a large cutting board with flour. Place the dough on the cutting board and roll into a 16 inch long by 8 inch wide rectangle. If the dough resists being rolled out, let it sit for another 15 minutes until it’s closer to room temperature. Trim the ends to form a rectangle with straight edges.
  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Place the pepperoni in an even layer on top of the dough. Top the pepperoni with the cheese. Sprinkle the oregano on top.
  • Use a pizza cutter or sharp knife to slice the rectangle into 1½ inch slices (I used the width of the pepperoni as a guide). Roll each slice up tightly lengthwise and place seam-side down on a baking sheet.
  • Combine the egg with one tablespoon of water in a small bowl. Whisk until the egg and water is combined. Brush the egg wash lightly on top of each roll (you won’t use all of the egg).
  • Bake for 18–20 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve with marinara sauce for dipping.

Notes

Make sure the store-bought dough is at room temperature before rolling it out. Cold dough from the refrigerator will be difficult to roll out. If you're using a tube of store-bought dough instead of a ball of fresh dough, there's no need to bring it to room temperature—the dough in tubes is often already rolled out anyway.
