Crock-pot experiment | Pepperoni Bread

I've been wanting to try a bread in the crockpot.  I actually wanted to try to make a pizza in the crockpot.  I looked several places online and got a general idea of what to do.  I saw that if you wanted to make a loaf of bread, you could ball up aluminum foil and place a bread pan on top of that while it cooks.  I saw people put frozen dinner rolls directly into the crockpot and cook them for an hour and a half.  All posts said that the bread would not get brown the way it does in the oven.  

Armed with what I thought was a pretty good idea of how to go about this experiment, I bought my ingredients.  I ended up using refrigerated biscuits.  I bought 2 rolls of the store brand of biscuits that had 10 in each roll.  They were the standard size--not Grands or minis.  I figured for .60 cents each, even if it didn't turn out, I hadn't made that much of a financial commitment. 

Here's what I did!

2 cans of refrigerated biscuits
4 oz. of mozzarella cheese, sliced
10 - 15 slices of pepperoni

I thought about putting the biscuits directly into the crockpot.  Then, I ended up balling up the aluminum foil the way they did for the bread pans.  But, I put a layer of aluminum foil on top of the balled up foil and then put one layer of biscuits on the foil.  Then, I put a layer of thinly sliced mozzarella cheese.  Then, a layer of pepperoni went on.  And finally, another layer of biscuits.  I turned the crock-pot on high for the four hour setting.  I checked it around three hours and it was done.  All crock-pots are different, so check it after about 2 1/2 hours.  

It was my intention to dip pieces of the pepperoni bread into a spaghetti or pizza sauce, but everyone ate it as is.  My daughter even asked me to make it again in the morning.  So, I guess she liked it!
