  • 1 loaf Italian Style Bread
  • 2 cups Ground Spicy Italian Sausage
  • 2 cups Mozzarella Cheese shredded
  • 1 cup of Pizza Sauce
  • 12-20 Pepperoni Slices
  • 2 tbsp Local Honey


  • Preheat your grill for two zone cooking at 325F.
  • Begin by slicing your Italian Style Bread in half and separating the top from the bottom (set the tops to the side to be used later). Next, carefully pull out the excess bread on both halfs from the bottom half so that you create a divot in the bun. Stuff the divot with shredded mozzarella cheese, then take a handful of your ground spicy italian sausage and cover the cheese with it. Make sure to spread out the ground sausage all over the bread so it completely covers the cheese. Once the bread is done, place them in the fridge for 15-20 minutes to firm up.
  • Take out the bread and place it over the coals with the ground sausage face down. Cook over the heat for about 10 minutes. If you have flare ups, make sure to move the bread around in order to prevent them. After 10 minutes, flip the bread over and pull it over to the cooler side of the grill and cook until it is 165F internal.
  • When the bread is done, kick up the heat in the grill to 450F while keeping the bread on the indirect side. Add a couple spoonfuls of pizza sauce on top of the cooked sausage then top with more shredded mozzarella cheese and sliced pepperonis. Once both pizza bread are topped, close the grill and let cook until the cheese has melted and the top is bubbly (about 5-7 minutes). Right before it's done, drizzle with some honey all over the Pizza Bread. When it is done, pull off and let cool for 2-3 minutes.
  • Slice up your Pepperoni Pizza Bread, serve and enjoy!
