One of my sister’s and my favorite meals growing up was our mom’s famous pizza bread. When I finally got my own kitchen, she gave me the recipe and I began to make it for myself!
It really is such an easy meal, and you can make it to your personal pizza topping preferences!
The first thing you do buy frozen loaves of white bread. I find them in the frozen section in Wal-mart or Kroger. Once you let it thaw and rise to about the size of a football, and you’ve sprayed the cookie sheet with Pam, you grab a rolling-pin and flatten’er out.
Then you crack an egg into a bowl and whisk it up. You paint it on to the dough using a pastry brush.
After it’s all coated in egg, I just use the Great Value pizza sauce, dump it out and spread it around with a fork! YUM.
Once you are satisfied with your with your sauce coverage, it is time for the CHEESE! I always just use the store brand, in this case Kroger’s Pizza Blend! Now, I just wanted plain old cheese pizza bread this time, but you can add whatever your beautiful, pizza-lovin’ heart desires. Although, I still don’t understand the pineapple thing……
Now it is time to construct the bread roll! You begin to roll the dough and as you roll, you brush the egg on the underside of the dough!
Rollin’, Rollin’, Rollin’…..
Taadaa!!! Isn’t it cute! Kind of looks like a pizza slug! What I do for the edges changes every time. This time, I twisted them and then stabbed them with the fork! Someday I may braid them, or envelope them, or return to simply tucking them…
You always brush all over the outside of the freshly rolled pizza read with the egg, and then I love to sprinkle some garlic salt on top and some Parmesan cheese as well!! I never go overboard, but it is a lot like flavored crust : )
You pop it in the oven at 350º for about 30 minutes to start. Depending on your oven, sometimes it may take closer to 40 minutes. It smells incredible as it bakes!
Every time we’ve ever made this, some (but never enough to be a problem) of the cheese inevitably pours out as it bakes. Doesn’t it look amazing? You just slice it up with a bread knife and serve! Delicious!
Is there anything more Christmas-y tasting than gingerbread?! I love it. I am partial…
