Pizza Bread

Ingredients

  • Ready-to-use bread dough, 1 -2 loaves (such as this brand or similar)
  • 1 14-ounce jar pizza sauce or your favorite tomato sauce
  • Fresh mozzarella, thinly sliced (but pre-shredded is fine)
  • Thin-sliced pepperoni
  • Fresh basil
  • All-purpose flour, for dusting
  • Additional pizza sauce for dipping, optional

Instructions

  • Allow bread dough to thaw and rise according to package directions. (This will take several hours, so be sure to allow for this.)
  • Once your bread dough has risen sufficiently, heat oven to 375 or whatever temperature is recommended on your bread dough package. Flour a counter top or cutting board well with all-purpose four. Dump out one of the bread loaves onto the flour, dust with a little more flour on top. Roll it out long ways and a little on the sides until bread is about 1/4 inch thick and about eight inches wide. Layer one quarter cup (or, more or less, to taste) pizza sauce onto the dough, spreading it to cover most of the dough. Layer on the mozzarella, breaking up any larger pieces as you go. Next tear pieces of fresh basil and sprinkle over the cheese. Last, layer on the pepperoni slices. Beginning at the short end closest to you, roll the dough, pulling it back towards you slightly to better overlap the filling with each roll, and place the rolled pizza bread seam side down into a loaf pan sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Bake at 375 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes, until golden brown, or bake according to the directions on your own bread dough package. Allow bread to cool for a few minutes, then turn onto a rack to cool a little more before slicing and serving.
