Just Another Meatless Monday #61 Pizza Bread

Hey What's For Dinner



This Pizza Bread lies somewhere between a savory monkey bread and a simple vegetarian pizza. It's fun to make with kids, it's fun to eat with kids too.  Pizza Bread is a killer dish to bring to a potluck because it's tastes great even when it's cold. Although that never happens because it doesn't stick around long enough to get cold. If it's just you and a friend cut the recipe in half or package up the leftovers for lunches, this recipe make a lot of food. Seriously.



Pizza Bread

bread dough for two loaves of bread
garlic powder or granules
1 cup pizza sauce
2 cups mozzarella cheese
1 cup fresh spinach, washed and dried
1/4 cup fresh basil, washed and dried

preheat oven to 375˚
generously grease a 9x13 baking dish
using kitchen shears snip one loaf of bread dough into the 9x13
sprinkle a generous amount of garlic powder onto the dough
spread half the sauce over the dough
sprinkle on half the cheese
then using the shears snip the spinach and basil over the cheese
snip the remaining loaf of dough over the top of the greens
sprinkle with more garlic if desired
spread on the rest of the sauce
sprinkle with remaining cheese
bake for 40 minutes in the the oven
then run under the broiler for 5 minutes to brown the top if desired
serve in the pan with a small spatula at a party or precut slices for easy serving at the table









Peace and Love--
