Pepperoni Cheese Bread

This bread goes well with all pasta dishes and especially well with the stuffed meatballs from yesterday's post.

1 1/2 C. water
4 C. bread flour
2/3 C. cheddar cheese
1 T. sugar
2 t. garlic powder
1 t. dried oregano
2 t. salt
2 2/3 t. active dry yeast
1 C. sliced pepperoni

Mix all ingredients except pepperoni.  If using a bread machine, add pepperoni about 15 minutes into kneading cycle.  If using a mixer, add the pepperoni last.
Put into a oiled bowl and let rise for 1 hour.
Punch down dough and shape into two loaves.  Let rise for another hour.  Bake @350* for 35-40 minutes.
