How To Make Pepperoni Pizza Braid


1 can (13.8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated classic pizza crust SAVE $
1/2 cup pizza sauce
2 cups shredded mozzarella and/or cheddar cheese, divided
2/3 cup pepperoni slices, divided, plus more for topping


  1. Gather your ingredients.
  2. Heat oven to 425°F (400°F for a dark or nonstick baking sheet). Lightly grease a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  3. Unroll pizza crust and press into a 10-by-13-inch rectangle on prepared baking sheet. Use kitchen scissors or a knife to cut 8 equal strips along each of the two longer edges, leaving a 3-inch space down the center of the dough rectangle.
  4. Spoon pizza sauce along the center of the pizza dough, then sprinkle with 3/4 cup of the shredded cheese. Top with 1/3 cup of pepperoni slices, then sprinkle with another 3/4 cup shredded cheese and remaining 1/3 cup pepperonis.
  5. Starting from one end, fold strips of dough over the filling to the center, so the ends overlap and it looks braided. Sprinkle top with remaining cheese and a few more slices of pepperoni.
  6. Bake 20 minutes until crust is golden brown and baked through and cheese is melted and bubbly.
