Colorful Pizza Bread!

Well, October is almost over! However, I just learned a very important thing about October......It is "World Hunger Action Month". Though the month is just about over, that doesn't mean we can't still help make a difference in people's lives across the globe, because hunger doesn't know what month it just IS! For those friends who don't know, EZ DOH donates a portion of every purchase to “Please Pass the Bread”,  a world-wide feeding ministry of the World Challenge organization. Since its inception in 2009, PPtB has established 60 feeding sites in 8 countries, serving meals to more than 6,000 impoverished children. Our friends at Red Star Yeast are also working to end hunger by donating a portion of their proceeds to So by buying from either one of these businesses, you're also taking part in helping to put food in hungry tummies! 

Here's a DELISH recipe to bake for your family...or share with someone. Remember what a blessing it is to be able to share the abundance of our many gifts!! 

      Colorful Pizza Bread      

1 Tbsp/packet Red Star Platinum Yeast
1 ½ Cups warm water
3 1/3 +  unbleached, all-purpose flour
2 tsp. salt
1 ½ Tbsp. sugar
2 Cups total pizza toppings (Dice all ingredients- Ingredient suggestions: pepperoni, black olives, red pepper, garlic, green pepper; mushrooms; green onions; sun-dried tomatoes; the list goes on…..)
½ Cup parmesan cheese
2 Cups shredded mozzarella

Place warm water and yeast in EZ DOH bucket and stir to dissolve yeast. Let rest 1 minute. Add one cup of flour, then additional dough ingredients, except mozzarella cheese . EZ DOH-it for 2-3 minutes, or until dough is smooth and soft and all ingredients are incorporated. Remove dough from bucket, spray bucket with cooking spray, “smooth” dough and replace in bucket. Cover and let rise until doubled.

Preheat oven to 425. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough into a 10x 16” rectangle. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Roll the dough, starting with a long side, cinnamon-roll style, tightly. Seal the edge and fold the ends under the loaf. The loaf can be baked on a greased baking sheet or a “farmer’s pan” (EZ DOH carries these slightly larger loaf pans – I love the shape!). Let the loaf rise for 30 minutes, then bake for 30-35 minutes, until golden. (Keep an eye on the loaf while baking - You may want to “tent” the loaf about half-way through baking with a piece of aluminum foil to prevent over-browning) Brush the top of the loaf with butter or olive oil when it is removed from the oven.
