Pepperoni Pizza Quick Bread

I LOVE quick breads. I wanted to make a savory one to go with an italian dish I was making and had some leftover sauce and pepperoni waiting to be used in the fridge. This one seemed perfect! I had some leftovers the next day and actually liked it better reheated. Brooke enjoyed her pizza “roll”. Hope you enjoy!


1 c all-purpose flour
1 1/2 t baking powder
1/4 t baking soda
1/2 t kosher salt
1/2 t ground black pepper
2 large eggs
2 T extra virgin olive oil
3/4 c buttermilk
1/4 c shredded Parmesan cheese
1 1/2 c shredded Mozzarella cheese
1 c quartered pepperoni slices, about 32 slices
1/2 c marinara sauce (i used some leftover spaghetti sauce!)
1 t Italian Seasoning for sprinkling
Parmesan Cheese for sprinkling

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and spray a loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray. (i used 3 mini loaf pans)

In a large bowl put the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and pepper and mix to combine. Slowly add in eggs, oil, buttermilk, Parmesan, Mozzarella and pepperoni until just combined. Pour half of batter into prepared pan. Top with marinara sauce then pour remaining batter over the sauce. Sprinkle the top with Italian seasoning and additional Parmesan cheese. Bake for 45-55 minutes or until toothpick comes clean from center. Let cool before removing from pan. Slice and serve warm!
