Bread Machine Garlic Herb Pepperoni Bread

Bread, glorious bread! You may not be excited but any time I get homemade bread to turn out as great as this I am one happy guy! It helped a lot that the dough for this bread machine garlic herb pepperoni bread was about as foolproof as you can get. I need foolproof when it comes to bread.

The house filled with a wonderful aroma as the bread baked. I love the smell of fresh-baked bread.
Bread Machine Garlic Herb Pepperoni BreadThe right combination of Italian flavors, bread machine garlic herb pepperoni bread also has the perfect texture, color, crust, flavor… you name it. I thought about adding more chopped pepperoni, but I think I was right in not doing that. You want every bite to be filled with all of the flavors and not over-powered by just one.

I’d make this again in a heartbeat! Also try my bread machine jalapeno cheese bread and my Italian herb bread.
