Easiest Pizza Bread

I like making pizza and we all love eating it (homemade is always the best!). The problem is that I get bored if I make the same thing too often. I tend to find a recipe that suits me both ingredient, time and taste wise and then use it over and over. So although I have made many different kids of pizzas, I always use the same recipe for the base. That is why I was so happy to find this pizza bread recipe… pizza with a twist!

Homemade Pizza Bread

I found this recipe on A Year of Yeast, and then adapted the ingredients slightly according to what I already had in the house.

The great thing about this recipe is that you just let the yeast sit in the warm water for a few minutes; mix in the other bread ingredients with a wooden spoon till they just come together; then add the topping ingredients and let it raise. The toppings I had on hand were: mushrooms, pepperoni, and ham (my son is not a vegetable fan so I didn’t add peppers, onions, or anything like that).

Here I didn’t have Parmesan so I skipped that. I also didn’t have time to let it rise for 2 hours so I just let it sit for 1. Rolled out the sticky dough with a bit of flour on the counter and my hands, put 1 1/2 cups of grated mozzarella in the middle, rolled it up and let it rise while the oven heated up. I followed the cooking time of 30 mins in the oven at 225 degrees C. (I always just approximate the temperature when it is written in degrees F.)

When I added the olive oil before baking the bread for the last 3 minutes it turned a shade darker than I expected it would, so I think I would cover the loaf with tinfoil a little earlier on in the baking process.

All in all it was an easy yummy loaf of bread which we all enjoyed!

About everyvariety

I find that being aware of looking for opportunities to enjoy life through as many senses as possible creates strong impressions of pleasure that enhance life's experiences. As with any other creation, there are many aspects to making an enjoyable experience. There should be memorable stimulation caused by texture, smell, color, taste, and visual presentation. This blog follows my journey as I learn to create, through following other's recipes, adapting recipes and creating my own. My love for all cooking, but mostly baking, comes from the joy I feel when sharing what I make with others and the satisfaction of a job well done. I am not naturally gifted when it comes to cooking but I find the experience meditative and creative, thus mentally relaxing. Please join me in my quest for making eating a beautiful experience.
