Jasmine cooked her first dinner last night. I was making Pizza Loaf and she wanted to help, so I said "why don't YOU make it and mommy will just help you".
She did, and she's so proud of herself, and let me tell you, this loaf is really good. I think it would be perfect for get togethers, superbowl parties, picnics etc. It's very versatile.
PIZZA LOAF1 loaf (1 pound) frozen bread dough, thawed
2 eggs, separated
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon minced fresh parsley
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper 8 ounces sliced pepperoni
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese
1 can (4 ounces) mushroom stems and pieces, drained
1/4 to 1/2 cup pickled pepper rings (I didn't use this)
1 medium green pepper, diced
1 can (2-1/4 ounces) sliced ripe olives, drained
1 can (15 ounces) pizza sauce
On a greased baking sheet, roll ou dough into a 15-in. x 10-inc. rectangle. In a bowl, combine the egg yolks, parmesan cheese, oil, parsley, oregano, garlic powder and pepper. Brush over the dough.
Sprinkle with pepperoni, mozarella cheese, mushrooms, pepper rings, green pepper and olives.
Roll up, jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal and tuck ends under. Place seam side down; brush with egg whites. Do not let rise.
Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Warm the pizza sauce; serve with sliced loaf.
Yield: 10-12 slices.
