    1. Make the bread dough by mixing together the bread mix and warm water. Knead until soft and elastic, about 8-10 minutes. Place into a greased bowl, cover with cling film, let sit in a warm area for 1 hour or until the dough has doubled in size.
    2. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
    3. Punch down the dough.
    4. On a lightly greased, large baking tray, roll dough into an approximately 30x45cm rectangle. Brush dough lightly with olive oil. Sprinkle with basil, onion flakes and oregano. Layer with pepperoni to within a 1.25cm of the edges. Top with mozzarella cheese.
    5. Beginning with the longest edge, roll dough into a thin cylinder and seal seam. Glaze with egg.
    6. Bake in the preheated oven 35 minutes or until golden brown. Cut into bite sized pieces to serve.

    Wow! This bread is delicious and so so easy to make, even though you have to give it time to rise you can be doing other things meanwhile. It looks so impressive and I can definitely see it becoming a family favorite. I made it for my daughters birthday party but it would also be great for picnics... gathering.....etc.  -  13 Jul 2011


    Wow! I took this to a New Year's Eve party and it was a hit! Rather than just mozzarella, I used provolone and romano as well. It was awesome! There were a few vegetarians at the party so I made a second loaf with peppers, onions, and mushrooms that was equally as good. I served this with Pizza Sauce III! Will definately make again.
