Sausage Bread

This has quickly become a favorite in the Circle B Kitchen and one of the most requested dishes. It really is good stuff that makes a fabulous appetizer, awesome party fare, great with soups or wonderful on a brunch table.


One ball of pizza dough, about 1 1/2 lbs

1 lb of cooked Italian sausage

2 teaspoons crushed red pepper

lots of chopped pepperoni

8 oz of shredded mozzarella cheese

plenty of grated parmesan or pecorino romano cheese

1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper

Roll the pizza dough out into a large-ish rectangle.

Top the dough with the grated mozzarella and then sprinkle that with the crushed red pepper. Top that with the cooked Italian sausage and then the chopped pepperoni. Sprinkle the pepperoni with the grated parmesan and then roll the dough to enclose the toppings.

Pinch the edges to seal tightly and then place on the prepared baking sheet. Brush the dough with the olive oil and the place in the preheated oven.

Bake for 30-40 minutes or until the dough is golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool 10-15 minutes before slicing. Best served warm.
