Rolled Up Pizza Loaf

Ingredients for Dough

1 cup warm water
2 Tbsp olive oil 
1 Tbsp milk 
1 tsp salt
3 cups white flour 
2 packets active dry yeast 
1 tsp sugar 
1 tsp Italian seasonings (or 1/2 tsp. basil and 1/2 tsp. oregano)

Toppings and Sauce

6 oz. pizza or spaghetti sauce (I like Hunts Garlic Herb)
About 1 cup pepperoni 
And whatever toppings you like
I used mushrooms, onion, black olives
8 oz.  shredded mozzarella cheese 
And any other favorite pizza toppings will do!
 Serve with  baby carrots  or other veggies  and dip


Combine water, salt, sugar, and yeast in medium bowl.
Let sit for 15 minutes til it bubbles.   Add  the olive oil,  milk and the flour and mix  along  with the Italian seasonings.  

Mix well  and  turn out onto the floured table and knead lightly until  it doesn't stick anymore.   You can either make two small loaves or one large loaf.  I recommend making two because the one big one was hard to transfer onto the pan. 

Cut the pepperoni into smaller pieces as well as the other toppings you want on your bread. 

Preheat the oven to 350.  Spray your large cookie sheet with vegetable spray.
Gently knead the dough and divide into 2 dough balls.  Roll out each dough ball into a long rectangle. 

Add the sauce, pepperoni, other chopped veggies, and shredded mozzarella cheese.

Roll it up tightly and place onto the greased baking sheet.  Slit the tops 4 or 5 times to allow to breathe and not to break open.  Lightly brush olive oil on top along with a little garlic salt and parmesan cheese.  
  Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

Let cool slightly before cutting. 

Serve sliced Pizza Bread with dipping sauce and a side of carrot sticks or other veggies.
