Pizza Loaf

This is a fun recipe that kids and adults love. I used a loaf of Rhodes Bread Dough--yes I can make my own and I have; but it never hurts to have a few cooking shortcuts on hand. This is a Pampered Chef Recipe, we have enjoyed it for years. Have it ready as kids are coming in the door from sports or dance. Add some fresh fruit and you have a complete meal and a happy family. Try to sit together and enjoy dinner as often as possible. After dinner was a time my dad was willing to talk. Oh the stories he told, living in a small mining town and then lying about his age so he could join the Navy. Dad had great stories, they got better every year!

Greg and I spent a day last week at The Timpanogos Storytelling Festival. What a delightful day it was. This is something we have wanted to do for years, but it was never convenient. It wasn't convenient this year either, but we went.  I'm so glad we did. So tell a story around the dinner table. Make dinner a place kids want to be and mark your calendar for August 30-September 1, 2012. We'll see you at the Storytelling Festival, it's at the mouth of beautiful Provo Canyon.

Pizza Loaf--Pampered Chef
1 loaf frozen bread dough, thawed
2 eggs separated
1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons Italian Seasoning
1/4 teaspoon pepper
8 ounces diced ham or mini pepperoni
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Mushrooms, peppers, olives as desired

On a greased bar pan roll thawed dough into a 15x10 inch rectangle. In a small bowl combine the egg yolk, oil, seasonings and Parmesan cheese. Brush mixture over dough. Sprinkle with meat, cheese and veggies. Roll up jelly roll style starting at the long side. Brush with lightly beaten egg white. Bake at 35 for 35-40 minutes. Serve with pizza sauce

I have seen this recipe many times and I always thought I would make it and never gotten around to it...all those years of cooking for all those boys coming over and I never made this...I'll mark it for Thanksgiving Saturday when everyone is on the move and coming in hungry and wanting pizza. Thanks...your photo of it is lovely. And, for the record, I agree...having dinner together as a family is so wonderful and the chat around the table priceless.

Yummy! It's basically Stromboli, which I absolutely adore...can't get enough of, as a matter of fact. Wish I had a loaf in front of me right now!

YUMMY!!! I love olives, but my husband doesn't. Maybe I can make this for lunch while he's at work or something :) Thanks for sharing at Sweet & Savory Saturdays #12!
