How to Make Focaccia Inside out Pizza Bread


  1. ADD IN INGREDIENTS: Cut pepperoni into halves or quarters. Cut canadian bacon into 8's. Slice and cut onion and bell pepper into bite size pcs. Place all ingredients on a baking sheet and bake at 400° for about 15 min. Set aside.
  2. CHEESE: Grate 1 c Asiago and 6 oz. Bruschetta cheese and place in one bowl. Add chopped basil to bowl. This will be used IN the dough.
    Grate another cup of Asiago and 6 oz. Bruschetta and place in another bowl. This will be for the topping.
  3. Place olive oil and hot water in bread machine pan, add in yeast and stir to dissolve. In a bowl mix together dry dough ingredients and then add to bread pan. Set bread machine on DOUGH ONLY cycle.
  4. Once the dough begins to take shape, you can start adding ingredients.
  5. Slowly add the pepperoni, canadian bacon, onion, bell pepper, cheese mixture. I do this in three stages. If you have to, get your hand in there and help the machine out. Wipe or scrape sides often.
  6. Once dough has completed the kneading phase, it should resemble this.
  7. After dough has risen, press into a 15x13 baking dish. Cover and let rise until doubled in size.
  8. Once dough has risen, brush on pizza sauce and top with grated cheese mixture.
  9. Bake at 400° for 35 min. Remove from baking dish onto cutting board and slice with pizza cutter.
