Ready for the oven!

Sudia’s Pizza Loaf
1 loaf (1 pound) frozen bread dough, thawed in fridge
1 pound ground sausage
1 medium onion finely chopped
1 can (8oz) tomato sauce
1 can (sliced) black olives
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (or use 1 cup mozzarella and 1 cup cheddar, if preferred)
1 egg beaten with 1 Tbs. water (this is egg wash)
Italian seasoning, for garnish
Grated parmesan, for garnish

Place dough in a greased bowl and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size.
In a large skillet, cook sausage and onion over medium heat until meat is cooked, drain. Stir in tomato sauce, black olives and seasoning; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, simmer uncovered for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cool completely.

Punch dough down. Place dough onto a large, greased jelly roll pan (approx. 15 x 12 inches); roll or press dough to edges of pan, then spread prepared, cooled filling lengthwise down center third of dough. Sprinkle cheeses over filling.
On each long side of dough, cut several 1-inch-wide strips about 2- 1/2 in. into center. Starting at one end, pull alternating strips at an angle up and across filling, pinching to seal dough in places, if needed to hold in filling. Brush pizza roll with egg wash, then sprinkle Italian seasoning and parmesan on top, as garnish.

Bake in preheated 350 degree F. oven for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown and hot throughout.

Now You’re Cookin’,
