1 pkg. (3.5 oz) pepperoni slices, diced
2 TB fresh parsley
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 TB flour
1 garlic clove, pressed
2 pkgs. (11 oz) refrigerated French bread dough
1 egg
1 tsp. Italian Seasoning Mix
2 TB Parmesan cheese
1 can (15 oz) pizza sauce, warmed (optional)

Preheat oven to 375. In a bowl, combine pepperoni, parsley, mozzarella cheese, flour & garlic; mix well.

Place bread dough, seam sides up, on smooth side of a cutting board. Using a knife, slice each loaf lengthwise, end to end, cutting halfway through to center of loaf; spread open flat. Lightly sprinkle additional flour evenly over dough. Using a baker's roller, roll dough crosswise to a 4-in width, creating a well down center of each loaf.

Spoon half of the pepperoni mixture down center of each loaf. Gather up edges over filling, pinching firmly to seal. Place loaves, seam sides down, in an "x" pattern on a rectangle stone. Crisscross ends of dough to form a large figure "8", keeping ends of dough 1 inch from edge of stone and leaving two 1 1/2 in openings in center of twist.

Beat egg white with seasoning mix; lightly brush over dough. Using serrated bread knife, cut a 3-in slit in each of the top sections of the twist to reveal filling.

Grate Parmesan cheese over loaf. Bank 30 - 35 minutes or until deep golden brown. Remove to cooling rack; cool 10 minutes. Cut in 16 slices. Serve with warm pizza sauce, if desired
