    Default Lobelia's Nameless Ham-Cheese-Pepperoni Bread

    This is great to slice up for casual parties. People can't get enough of it. It also keeps very well for a few days in the refrigerator. Just cut off a slice, pop it in the microwave for a bit & enjoy.


    Each loaf requires:

    1 refrigerated canned pizza crust
    pound smoked deli ham, shaved
    1 cups mozzerella cheese, shredded
    (approx.) of an 8 oz bag of pepperoni slices
    cup melted butter or margarine
    garlic powder

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease loaf pan with butter or Pam.

    Roll out pizza dough on flat surface with roller. Do not roll it too flat, and dont make the shorter ends much wider than the length of your loaf pan. Keep it in a rectangular shape.

    Brush with melted butter & apply a light dusting of garlic powder.

    Sprinkle mozzerella evenly over dough. Place pepperoni slices in rows until dough is covered. Put ham evenly over cheese & pepperoni.

    Start at one short end of the dough & start rolling it up. As you go, fold the outside (long) edges inward & roll everything over these edges, to seal the loaf. Continue doing this until its completely rolled up.

    Carefully pick the loaf up & place it in the pan, with the sealed edge on the bottom. Brush it with melted butter.

    Bake 50-55 minutes, depending on how hot your oven is. For the first 40 minutes or so, keep a sheet of aluminum foil loosely over the top or it will get too brown. Take the foil off during the last 15 minutes of baking. The tricky part is getting the inside baked without overbaking it all.

    This is based on using a metal pan. I have not tried using glass pans, so the baking time and/or temperature might need to be adjusted.





    (I used to use frozen bread dough, and went through the process of thawing out the dough & letting it rise, & then rolling it flat. Rolling it flat was pretty difficult, & I found that the pizza dough does just as well. Bread dough is always an option, though. Fresh bread dough would probably be amazing )

    Thanks for this. Might be a good thing to serve at hubby's annual party for his grad students. I'd have to make half vegetarian though.

    A friend of mine did one of these using only sliced green olives & a little cheese & said it was wonderful.

    I was half watching the Food Network today and there's a kind of dumb show called "Road Tasted." Anyway, they went to a famous deli in New York's Little Italy where they had super-famous pizza bread. They used bread dough and put fresh mozza in, pepperoni, ham, potato and something I can't remember in, and it looked delish. Everybody raved about the potatoes, even though it seemed odd at the time. Now I HAVE to try making something like this for my party. Oh yeah, they brushed the bread with egg yokes to make it shine and brown nicely.

    Potatoes? Like cooked potatoes? Sliced or like fries or something? How odd, never would have thought of that. Potatoes in bread?

    They were more like cubes, but everyone said they were great with the meat and cheese and bread. I just went on Road Tasted site on the Food Network and the place is Mike's Deli, and they call it the original Sicilian stuffed bread. Apparently they ship it anywhere in the States!

    It even has a celebrity connection. Apparently the deli is Robert de Niro's and Al Pacino's favourite place to eat. And it's not in LIttle Italy, it's on Arthur St. Oops.
