Pizza Bread

A few months ago we took the kids to a field trip at Great Harvest Bread Co. While we were there, we sampled some of their pizza bread. It was SO good and ever since then I’ve wanted to tackle a re-creation of the recipe. One thing or another always came up until this weekend. I finally was able to get around to it and we were all so pleased with the results. I will definitely be making this again and again! We ate one loaf in about 5 minutes and I quickly put the other 2 in the freezer.

Pizza Bread

  • 6-7 c. white flour
  • 1 T. yeast
  • 2 c. milk
  • 1/2 c. water
  • 1/4 c. butter or margarine
  • 1/4 c. sugar
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 2 t. Italian seasoning
  • 3/4 c. pizza sauce
  • 20 -25 slices pepperoni, cut into small pieces
  • 2 c. shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese

1. In a large mixing bowl, combine 2 1/2 c. flour with 1 T. yeast and set aside.

2. Add milk, water, butter or margarine, sugar and salt to a small saucepan. Heat over medium heat until warm. Pour into large bowl with the flour and yeast. Stir or beat until well combined. Slowly work in remaining flour and Italian seasoning. Knead (by hand or with an electric mixer) until dough is smooth and elastic, about 8-10 minutes. Cover and let dough rise for 1 hour in a lightly greased bowl.

3. Divide dough into 2 or 3 portions, depending on how big you want your loaves to be. Roll each ball of dough into a rectangle.4. Spread about 1/4 c. pizza sauce on each section of dough.5. Sprinkle the diced pepperoni and cheeses on top of the pizza sauce.6. Roll dough tightly, jelly-roll style, and pinch the seams shut.7. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

  1. This is very similar to the strombolis that my school used to serve when I was growing up. Sometime during junior high, the cooks stopped making it because it was too much of a pain, but I’d love to make this for my family. Thanks! 🙂

  2. Yum! That would be fun to have in the freezer to pull out for lunches or a fast snack or dinner…did you freeze the other loaves before or after they were cooked? I’m going to do this next week!!

  3. Oh my goodness! These look to die for!! I am so taking this recipe and going to work it into our menu this week. Thank you so much for sharing such a yummy looking recipe! What a fun tackle!

  4. Mmmmmmmm, yum! I love GH and their breads… can you recreate the chocolate babka and spinach feta and apple scrapple and asiago, too? 😉

  5. If you can recreate something from GH – I am bookmarking you immediately! 🙂 Came through WFMW!

  7. Hi there.:) I tried your recipe.:) It was a hit with the family. I had to cook it longer to. But I added pictures to my blog of what I made. Thanks for the recipe.:)

  8. So glad that I came across your blog…I love this idea and can’t wait to try it. Thanks so much!! My kiddos will LOVE THIS!

  9. This was so wonderfully easy & delicious!
    I'm featuring it tomorrow on my blog because I was just so happy with how it turned out.
    Thanks for sharing!

  10. I feel silly because no one else has asked this question. But… there is 1/4 c butter in the list of ingredients but I don’t see it anywhere in the instructions.

  11. Eden – Wow! Thanks for pointing that out. I’ll fix the post right now.

    Just to let you know though, the butter or margarine goes with the milk and other ingredients right at the beginning of step 2.

    Sorry about that!
