“there really is no exact measuring to this recipe, amounts I have listed are only a guideline you may decrease or increase all amounts to suit you taste, I just purchase a small chub of pepperoni pizza and then chop about half of it for this recipe, and I have also made this using all-beef salami --- make certain to seal up the edges of the bread dough or pizza dough tightly before baking or the cheese will run out --- I have made this with bread dough and also with pizza dough, although the pizza dough was great the bread dough was better, you have a choice of either one you desire”
