I know, I know…I have a thing about wrapping stuff up in bread. It seems to make people happy, so I think I will continue doing it.
2 pkg (4½ tsp) dry yeast
1½ cups warm water (110°)
4 tsp sugar
4 Tbl olive oil
1½ tsp salt
4 cups bread flour
1 Tbl olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped bell pepper
1 (14 oz) jar pizza sauce, divided
3 cups shredded mozarella cheese, divided
1 (4 oz) bag mini pepperoni
1 cup cooked sausage crumbles
1/2 cup bacon bits
1 (3.8 oz) can sliced olives
Sprinkle yeast over warm water, sprinkle sugar over yeast. When yeast if foamy, add oil, salt, and flour. knead. Let rise in warm place until doubled. Sauté onion and peppers in 1 Tbl oil until tender, set aside.
Roll out dough to a rectangle approx. 20″x12″. Spread 1/2 cup pizza sauce over dough. Layer filling ingredients in order: 1½ cups cheese over sauce, then pepperoni, sausage, bacon, olives, and onion mixture. Sprinkle another 1¼ cups cheese over toppings (save about 1/4 cup cheese for top if desired). Roll up, starting with a long side, pinch seam to seal.
Place seam side down on a silpat lined or sprayed baking sheet, pinch ends together to form a ring. With kitchen scissors, cut from outside edge to two-thirds toward center of ring at about 1″ intervals. Separate strips slightly, twist to allow filling to show. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake at 375° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown and crust is done. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top for last 5 minutes of baking if desired. Serve with remaining pizza sauce for dipping. Pull apart, dip, and enjoy!
