Super Bowl Spinach Roll!

Superbowl Spinach Roll! 

I've decided to join the crowds of baking/cooking bloggers who are listing their favorite appetizers for the big game that's coming up this weekend. We're hosting a big party with fam and friends.....My hubby fries up wings and our guests bring loads of calorie-laden goodies. Munching on all these tasty goodies is soooo much better than watching the game! I must admit, though, that I try to put a couple of things on the table that are high in flavor, yet are not totally corrupt. This year, that's particularly important to me as I have a doctor's appointment on MONDAY....of all days....the Monday after the Super Bowl.....what the heck! Those doctors ALWAYS insist on weighing you.......and I don't supposed there's any "post-Super-Bowl" exemption. Bah! So I have to have something fairly sensible to eat that night.....

This year, I've decided that a spinach roll might fill that bill. Loaded with spinach, peppers, mushrooms, garlic (and more than a little cheese....), these tasty slices entice even those who have sworn off all things green from their diet. And if I don't eat toooo many slices, I don't think the scales will tell on me.....

Super Bowl Spinach Roll 

Olive Oil Bread: 
(You may use any pizza dough recipe or EZ DOH's basic recipe -just thought you might just like another dough recipe ! )

1 1/3 Cup warm water
1 packet/Tbsp.Red Star Platinum yeast
2 tsp. Kosher salt
½ Tbsp. Sugar
2 Tbsp. olive oil
3- 3 ¼ C. Unbleached, all-purpose flour

Place warm water and yeast in EZ DOH bucket and stir to dissolve yeast. Wait 1-2 minutes. Add 1 cup flour, then remaining ingredients and EZ DOH-it , adding the final ¼ c. of flour gradually till the dough is soft and smooth. Remove the dough from the bucket, spray the bucket with cooking spray and then replace dough and cover bucket. Let rise till doubled.  At this point, the dough can be used for a spinach roll, or can be shaped into a loaf. (If you are making a loaf, shape, let rise again then bake) .
