Braided Pepperoni Pizza Bread

Here's another game day appetizer that is sure to score a touch down with your crowd!  Pizza is a game day essential.  I've tried pizza pockets and pizza bites, so I naturally had to try something different.  Although these three are all very similar, I think I prefer the bread the best because when served hot, the cheese is still melty and gooey like a traditional pizza.  My only suggestion is to make more than 1 because this thing was devoured before it touched the table!
