Pepperoni and Hawaiian pizza spiral breads

Michael and I came up with this recipe last week when we had some extra pizza dough in the fridge but didn’t feel like making a traditional pizza. So we topped the dough with pizza sauce, pepperoni, and cheese, and rolled the dough into a loaf. It was delicious! This week, we recreated our pizza spiral bread, but substituted bbq sauce and Hawaiian pizza toppings for the filling. We think that this version was even more delicious than the first, and would certainly recommend trying either for a quick dinner or snack.

For the pepperoni pizza spiral bread:

  • 1 recipe Italian-style pizza dough
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • Italian seasoning, to taste
  • About 20 slices of pepperoni
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 of a medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • Garlic salt, to taste

For the Hawaiian pizza spiral bread:

  • 1 recipe Italian-style pizza dough
  • 1/2 cup bbq sauce (we like Sweet Baby Ray’s Honey Chipotle BBQ Sauce)
  • Italian seasoning, to taste
  • 3 thin slices of ham, cut into 1-inch squares
  • 1/3 cup pineapple tidbits, drained
  • 1/2 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • Garlic salt, to taste

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roll the pizza dough into a 8-inch by 14-inch rectangle. Spread a thin layer of sauce over the dough, leaving a 3-inch margin on one of the short ends, as pictured below. (The 3-inch margin will help prevent the filling from bursting out of the bread as it bakes).

Sprinkle Italian seasoning over the sauce. If you’re making the pepperoni pizza bread, top with pepperoni, garlic, and onion. If you’re making the Hawaiian pizza bread, top with ham and pineapple. For both breads, sprinkle Mozzarella cheese over the rest of the toppings.

Carefully roll up the pizza dough, beginning at the short end with toppings. Turn the loaf into a nonstick 8-inch by 4-inch loaf pan and press down to seal edges. Sprinkle with garlic salt and let rise for 15 minutes. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until bread is golden and sounds hollow when tapped. Let cool 10 minutes before serving.
