Time For Family Night
This pizza bread is great for a family fun night, or any night. It’s something that kids of all ages can help make by rolling out, choosing their toppings, adding cheese, and maybe even helping put on the sauce.
I cook the raw ingredients in advance so I can drain the grease off. This way all the ingredients just need to be heated up and you don’t have to worry about them being done or not.
Everyone’s Got A Favorite
When we make this I usually use three loaves of bread and that’s for four to six adults with leftovers for the next day. I usually let my son make one for him which he loads up with pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, onions, green peppers, bacon, mozzarella cheese, and Parmesan cheese while my daughter is just a cheesy girl; sometimes she adds green peppers–depends on her mood. My husband likes anything but pineapple and anchovies; he is easy to please (usually, at least). I, on the other hand, am also a little simple. I prefer Mushrooms, onions, hamburger, bacon and mozzarella.
Thawing and Baking
I follow the directions on the back of the bag for thawing the bread dough and for baking as well. You want to make sure it is golden brown on the top. So, try to brush off as much flour as you can on the top. I spray the bottom of the pans before I place the pizza bread on the pan. To get the top golden brown, I spray a little on the top with olive oil cooking spray (Like the brand Pam). If you don’t have that you can brush a little olive oil or vegetable oil on top as a substitute.
When it comes out of the oven it should be done as long as you cooked it following the directions on the back of the bag. Some of the sauce might of leaked out and that’s okay. It happens to us all of the time. The ends might be a little thicker and not as much filling but it gets used with the extra sauce left over with some Parmesan cheese.
The only thing left is to slice it up and enjoy! If there is any left I store it in an airtight container for three days in the refrigerator, or you can freeze it for up to 3 months.
I hope you enjoy!
