Ingredients

  • 1

    pkg active dry yeast (or 2 1/4 tsp.)

  • 1-1/3

    cup water (about 90º – 100º F)

  • 2

    Tbsp olive oil

  • 4

    cups all-purpose flour

  • 2

    tsp salt

  • 2

    tsp dried rosemary

  • 2

    tsp dried oregano

  • 1

    tsp dried chili flake

  • 2

    cloves garlic, pressed or minced

  • 1-1/2

    cups grated Cheddar cheese

  • 1/2

    cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1/2

    cup pepperoni, cut into small pieces

  • 1

    egg, beaten

  • 1/4

    cup grated parmesan cheese

Directions

Sprinkle the yeast over the water and let it sit for about 5 minutes, or until you see it foam and bubble slightly. Add the olive oil and mix well. Combine the flour, salt, rosemary, oregano, chili flake, garlic, grated Cheddar, grated Parmesan and pepperoni and blend well. Using a food processor, stand mixer or wooden spoon, slowly incorporate the liquid into the dry ingredients until a dough forms. Knead the dough for 7 minutes (if using an electric mixer) or 15 minutes (if kneading by hand) until the dough is elastic and pliable. Place the dough into an oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap or a clean towel. Let the dough rise in a warm place until it has doubled in size – about 1 – 2 hours. Punch the dough down and shape it into a rectangle. Roll the rectangle tightly into a log, squeezing out any air pockets as you go. Lightly grease your chicken roaster dish and place the dough in the dish, around the center cup. Pinch the ends together so that the dough looks like a doughnut, and allow it to rise for a second time, covered with plastic wrap or a clean towel. When risen dough is ready, it will leave a slight imprint when pressed with your finger. Pre-heat the oven to 375º F. When the dough has risen again, brush the top lightly with the beaten egg and sprinkle the top with parmesan cheese. Bake for 35 – 45 minutes, or until nicely browned on top. (If the top is browning too quickly, tent loosely with foil.) As soon as the bread is cool enough to handle, remove it from the dish and let it cool on a rack. To serve, slice the bread into pieces and return it to the dish. Place your favorite tomato sauce in the center of the dish and heat in the oven for 10 minutes at 350º F. Serve together, with tomato sauce as a dip for the pizza bread.
