How To Make sourdough pizza bread

  • Bread machine - Dough Cycle
    In the bread machine: Add milk, starter, sugar, salt, egg, butter basil, oregano, tomatoes, flour and yeast. Set it on the dough cycle.
  • Roll out the dough, press chopped pepperoni on top.
    After the dough cycle is finished, roll out on a floured surface into a large rectangle. I had to use more flour as my dough was too sticky....depending on the consistency of your starter, you may have to adjust.
  • Top with cheeses.
    Leave about 1/4" edge free of ingredients so you can pinch it together after rolling up. Gently push in the chopped pepperoni, top with Parmesan and mozzarella.
  • Roll up, seal, cover with plastic and allow to rise again.
    Roll up "jelly-roll" fashion and pinch the edges to seal. Tuck in the sides. Transfer to a baking dish and cover with an oiled piece of plastic wrap to rise again.
  • 5
    Preheat the oven to 400 F while your bread is rising.
  • Wait 10-15 min if you can, and serve with your favorite marinara sauce for dipping.
    Bake for 45 minutes or until done. Serve cooled with warm marinara or pizza sauce. OR...... You can do like I always did....get it out to the car and rip the loaf apart with your bare hands and wolf down a chunk in the parking lot.
