Rolled sandwich slices

For our wedding reception we are DIYing 2 separate buffets.

Grownups:

Rolled sandwich slices- pepperoni and mozzarella, ham and sharp cheddar, and roast beef and swiss
Cocktail weiners in barbeque sauce
Veggie tray with ranch dip- cherry tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, and baby carrots
Sausage balls
Salmon balls
Flavored crackers with plain sour cream dip
Sliced cheese tray with dry crackers
Stuffed mushrooms
Baklava
Truffles- raspberry, mocha, and hazlenut
Dark chocolate dessert cups filled with strawberries, raspberries, cherries, and mandarin orange slices

Kids:
Flavored crackers with plain sour cream dip
Tuna and chicken salad finger sandwiches
Veggie tray with ranch dip- cherry tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, and baby carrots
Townhouse "lipped" crackers and squeezy cheese
Cracker, cheese, and pepperoni tray
Donut holes- powdered, chocolate, and plain

We decided to do a test run of the rolled sandwiches, and I thought I would post it in case anyone else would like to make them. For the sake of bandwith, I'll be concentrating on the pepperoni and mozzarella in this post.

First, the ingredients:

One pack of three loaves of frozen dough
One pack pepperoni slices
One pack deli-style roast beef
One pack deli-style ham
One pack sliced mozzarella
One pack sliced sharp cheddar
One pack sliced swiss

Spray three cookie sheets with a cooking spray. I use butter flavor, but you can use whatever you prefer.

Place each loaf of dough on a cookie sheet and cover with a cloth. Something light, like cheesecloth. What we used was just a bit too heavy (a clean tablecloth) and some of the dough got stuck to it when we went to take it off. Allow to thaw and rise. We left ours overnight, which turned out to be just a tad too long, so I recommend starting this in the morning and keeping an eye on it throughout the day.

Flour a clean surface and a rolling pin. Turn your dough out onto the flour and knead it slightly. Then roll the dough, starting in the middle and working your way outward. Continuously flip and turn the dough to get it rolled out as evenly as possible.

Once rolled out, put a layer of pepperoni on the dough. Be sure to leave some room around the edges, and to leave about an inch uncovered on one side. Then place a layer of mozzarella on top.

Starting at the fuller end, tightly roll the dough. Once it is completely rolled, place it seam side down onto the cookie sheet. Pull and tuck the sides under as well.

Bake at 350F for about 25- 30 minutes, or until the crust is a golden brown. Cut the sandwich roll into slices and enjoy! This may also be served with marinara sauce.*

*Our quick and easy marinara recipe

One large can tomato sauce
One regular sized can diced tomatoes
One small can tomato paste
One Thick and Zesty pasta sauce spice packet
(All of these ingredients can be purchased at WalMart for under $2.00 if you buy store brand.)

Empty contents of each can into a pot. Stir until smooth. Mix in spice packet. Cover and allow to simmer over a low heat until hot.

After making these we've decided that they are a bit too small to be worth the effort of making them as is for the reception, so if anyone has a good basic bread recipe that can be doubled may we please have it? Thank you! :)
