Stuffed Bread

I had a few inquiries about my stuffed bread from last week so I'll include my recipe (of sorts) at the end. It's so easy!

This week, we are eating from the freezer and the pantry. We are pretty well stocked with the staples so it was relatively easy to plan a well rounded menu for the week. I even have plenty of frozen veggies on hand from a big sale last month. I love when I can do this! I'm hoping that I only need to shop for things like milk, eggs and fresh fruit.

Stuffed Bread

This is a recipe 'of sorts'. Meaning that is not an exact recipe but more of my method for making stuffed bread. It's really pretty simple and so easy to customize. Stuffed bread is sort of like a calzone or stromboli.

This time I made pepperoni and cheese stuffed bread because that was what the kids wanted (as always!) and I already had the ingredients on hand.

1 lb of your favorite pizza dough
approx. 1 cup of your favorite pizza sauce
approx. 3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
a few handfuls of pepperoni

Cut the dough in half, form 2 balls, cover and let rise for about 45 minutes.

Roll one ball into a rectangle about 1/4 inch thick. Spread with half of the pizza sauce leaving a 1/2 border around the edges. Sprinkle with half the cheese and then top with half the pepperoni. Carefully roll jellyroll style, starting at the long edge. Wet the edge with water and seal. Place the seam underneath the roll. Brush with olive oil. Let sit 15 min. Repeat with second ball of dough.

Preheat oven and pizza stone to 450ยบ. Sprinkle the pizza stone with cornmeal. Slide bread on to the hot stone and cook for 20 min or until top is golden and sounds done when you tap it.

Slice and eat!

There are so many different things you can fill your bread with. Adjust the amounts to suit your family's tastes. I like broccoli or spinach cooked with garlic. Ham and cheese is good. Cooked, chopped chicken with sauteed peppers and onions or browned ground beef and cheese, or well, the combinations are limitless!

Enjoy, it just as good the next day as it is fresh from the oven.
