The original recipe calls for one loaf of frozen bread dough, thawed. However, I just made a batch of my mom’s homemade pizza dough instead since it was less expensive and faster.
- 1 pkg. dry yeast (2 1/4 tsp.)
- 1 T. sugar
- 1 T. oil
- 1 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 C. warm water
- 2 1/2 C. flour
Directions: Dissolve yeast in water. Add sugar, oil, salt and 2 C. flour. Blend two minutes on low with dough hook then add 1/2 C. flour. Coat cookie sheet with non-stick spray or flour. Spread out the dough to make a large rectangle.
- 2 eggs, separated (don’t throw away the whites!!)
- 2 T. oil
- 1 tsp. oregano
- 1 tsp. parsley
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
- 4-oz. pkg. sliced pepperoni (or 1 lb. Italian sausage, cooked)
- 8-oz. pkg. shredded mozzarella cheese
Combine egg yolks, oil, oregano, parsley, garlic powder and pepper together; spread over dough. Arrange pepperoni (or cooled sausage) and mozzarella cheese on top; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
Roll up; place seam-side down on a baking sheet. Brush with egg whites and bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes.
Serve with warmed garlic butter or spaghetti (pizza) sauce for dipping.
