  1. Set and pre-heat the oven to 375 F. 
  2. In a small bowl, combine the garlic, rosemary and oregano, olive oil and mix well. Using a sharp bread knife, make 2.5 centimeter diagonal cuts across the bread without cutting all the way through.

Place the pineapple, pepperoni slices and cheese into the cuts ensuring to push them well into the bread. Cover the top of the with aluminum foil.
