Yummy Pizza Bread

Before Yummy Goodness is made!
*1 roll refrigerated french bread dough OR 1 loaf frozen bread dough (thawed)
*Regular or turkey pepperoni
*Mozzarella cheese
*Parmesan cheese
*Extra Virgin Olive oil
*Dried Italian seasoning

*Pizza sauce (in post below)

Directions:Preheat oven to 350.

Roll out bread dough, and drizzle with olive oil, a few small dollops of sauce, sprinkle with mozzarella, Parmesan cheeses, Italian seasoning, and place pepperoni on top of the cheese.

Carefully roll the bread dough into a cylinder shape. Pinch ends and top to seal.

Brush top and sides with some olive oil.If desired, top loaf with cheese, pepperoni, and/or Italian seasoning. Make a few diagonal slices in top of loaf for air to escape while cooking.

Bake at 350 for ~20 min.

Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes before slicing. Serve with pizza sauce.

Pizza Sauce
*8 oz tomato sauce
*3 oz tomato paste
*1 clove garlic, minced
*2 tsp oregano
*1/8 tsp red pepper flakes (or more for a kick)
*pinch of sugar
*pinch of salt & pepper

Mix all ingredients in a bowl, and let flavors blend before using.

I got this recipe from a fellow nestie. (for those of you who don't know what a nestie is...it is a friend on thenest.com) Many many nesties have food blogs on there signatures for you to check out their creations in their kitchens. So far this is the first one I've made and not the last. I will list those that I frequently browse so you can get a good idea! Come back for my recipes! For I will be cooking more!!
