Supreme Bread Pizza

Supreme Bread Pizza

 

 

As a mother of three kids, two teens and one twin, I always look for quick meals just like this delicious pizza. We have this at least once a week on our family movie night. Thankfully, Publix is just around the corner, so we can pick up ingredients pretty fast.

 

While shopping at Publix, you can grab Bertolli Olive Oil from the oils aisle and freshly baked bread, as well as other key ingredients needed for this delicious recipe. I mean, while you are there, you don’t have to go anyplace else because you can find everything in one spot.

 

Most of the time I make this gourmet pizza with two types of bread, Italian and French. My boys love it with Publix bakery style French bread, but my lovely daughter and I prefer Italian bread (also found at Publix bakery right next to the deli). So, with that being said, I thought to name this “Supreme Bread Pizzas.”

You can literally use any bread that you have or prefer. I guess that is the beauty of this meal, as well as the point of my blog “Easy Cooking.”

On the other hand, my dear husband does not care; he just loves this pizza.

Simple, easy and delicious dinner idea or

Sunday football treats to share with your loved ones.

 

I loved using both Bertolli Olive Oil Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 16.9 oz. and Bertolli Olive Oil Extra Virgin Light Tasting Olive Oil, 16.9 oz. For this particular recipe, I chose Bertolli Olive Oil Extra Virgin Olive Oil because it has that amazing flavor that I was promptly going for.

 

The taste is absolutely delightful! This isn’t surprising, as Bertolli is the world’s #1 olive oil brand and they have over 150 years of experience. You can most definitely visit them to learn more about Bertolli products and get amazing recipes.

Author Sandra | Sandra's Easy Cooking

Ingredients

  • 1 Bread Loaf Italian or French
  • 2 tablespoons Bertolli Olive Oil Extra Virgin Olive Oil plus one more drizzle
  • 2 cups Shredded Italian Pizza Blend Cheese
  • 1 Cup Tomato Sauce Olive Oil + Garlic
  • 1 cup Mini Pepperoni
  • 14 Hard Salami Slices
  • 1/2 cup Black Olive sliced.
  • 1/2 cup Green Pepper diced.
  • Herbs: Oregano Italian Herb Blend
  • Other Ingredients: Prosciutto Olives, Sauce for dipping, etc.

Instructions

  1. Preheat standard oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Slice the bread in half, lengthwise, then drizzle about one tablespoon on each side. Gently press the bread a bit in the middle, just enough to stretch it and make room for the toppings.
  3. Add on about 1/4 cup of cheese on the bottom of each bread slice, then drizzle tomato sauce. If you want to use more sauce, you can. Add more cheese and the rest of the toppings. I add a bit of cheese first because it is like a barrier, so the bread doesn't get to soak with the sauce.
  4. Bake for 12-15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the crust is somewhat crunchy, and the cheese is completely melted.
  5. Allow it to cool down for a couple of minutes before slicing. Drizzle just a bit of olive oil before serving.

Recipe Notes

You can add a different blend of cheese, sauce, as well as any toppings that you prefer. In the case of the bread: Italian, French, Cuban, flatbread, or slices of homemade bread would work just fine. Before baking, you can wrap it up and freeze for up to 3 months. Bake at 400 F for 20 minutes or until the pizza is completely thawed and cheese melted.

Thai Hummus Pizza with Butternut Squash and Vegetarian Sausages

Thai Hummus Pizza with Butternut Squash and Vegetarian Sausages

 

My family loves pizza, and this one sure is completely different take on a pizza.
Pizza comes in many shapes and forms, and everyone has their favorite. To my surprise, my family asks more and more for hummus pizza. You can add any topping that you desire, but I tried this one and we liked it.

So, I used Thai Coconut Curry from HOPE, which a bit spicy and most definitely delicious hummus. Also, I used Vegetarian sausages by Field Roast and roasted butternut squash.
We love cheese very much, so I added a bit of cheese by Daiya to make this pizza complete.

I try to serve meatless meals at least twice a week, and this pizza as well one that I made a couple of weeks ago “Vegetable Hummus Pizza“, will be served often, especially over weekends.

Vegetarian sausages by Field Roast was a total surprise. I wouldn’t even believe in a million years how much it tastes like a real sausage. I used Mexican Chipotle, and it gave me that extra kick of heat to every bite. Perfection!

As you can tell, this pizza is completely vegan!
If you wish to use regular cheese, you are more than welcome.

I was not endorsed by any of these companies, so this is not a sponsored post. However, I received Hope hummus to try.

By the way,
Mozzarella Style Shreds by “Daiya”
Dairy-free Mozzarella Style Shreds melt, ooze, bubble, and stretch — just like regular mozzarella cheese. These delicious Shreds are an ideal cheese alternative for pizzas, pasta and more.

We love stuffed bread. We are a kind of fanatics in that department. I mean, when you look at it realistically, it’s pizza dough, and you can fill it with anything that you like; cold cuts, sauteed meat/poultry, cheese, etc. Who would say “NO” to that? […]

Homemade Pizza Recipe

Pizzaaaa time!!! Who does not enjoy a slice of pizza once in a while? My family and I love making it over the weekend, or Friday night. Also, on Sundays pizza became a kind of tradition when the football is on, then we eat a nice dinner later.

Usually, I make a double the size on Friday, cut into equal portions, place in the Ziplock bags and leave the dough in the fridge until Sunday. The dough comes out even better when it is at least 24 hours in the fridge, however, sometimes I bake it right away and there is nothing wrong with it.

Like this one that I am sharing today. I left it to rise for an hour and a half. It turned out great! I made one large pizza, and the rest I made a huge pizza roll, but they could be much smaller. Yes, this could be also called Calzone, since it is an oven baked, filled with cheese and pepperoni pizza.

Homemade Pizza Recipe

I will share the footage or a BONUS recipe at the end of my video for pizza. It’s quite basic and simple. I did not know if I should add it or perhaps remove from the video, regardless of the possibility that the video is longer than my standard ones.

Pepperoni Pizza Rolls (Calzone)
BONUS RECIPE IN MY VIDEO

Maybe some of you may even attempt to make it, that is why I decided to keep that extra recipe “pizza” idea. The children go bananas over Calzones, and also adults. It is truly a heavenly baked goodie, I must say, and extremely fulfilling, wouldn’t you agree?!

As far as flour goes, I clarified it bellow about it. I truly enjoyed blending both flours, It is an option that you might like to try. The dough is phenomenal whichever way you make, however, only a bit better when you blend both.

This is my most favorite way to make my kids happy on Friday night, after soccer conditioning, or band practice, where they have to stay longer at school.

So, when they come home, the aroma of freshly baked pizza wraps the entire house. Can you imagine it? I call that “a labor of love” especially when I see their happy faces.

The movie is on television, blankets thrown on the oversized sofas, lights off, pizzas in front of us and that is pretty much our Friday night. It might be strange to you, but for us, there is nothing more special, nor satisfying to do on Friday night.

I am really inhaling these special moments before they leave my nest. You really do not think about anything. Your whole world is right there next to you, enjoying these simple, but special moments just as much as you.

Ingredients

  • 1 envelope instant dry yeast 2 teaspoons/ ¼ Oz /7g
  • 1 teaspoon sugar 4.25g
  • ½  cup Luke warm water 117ml
  • 1½   cups All Purpose flour 180g
  • 1½   cups Bread Flour + for dusting 180g (approx. ½ cup more /60g)
  • 2 teaspoons  Table Salt 11g
  • 1 cup Luke warm water 100 degrees F/37.7 C (235ml) (add a splash more, if needed)
  • 1½   tablespoons olive oil 22 ml

Topping:

  • 2 tablespoons Pizza Sauce
  • Fresh Mozzarella /or shredded Pizza cheese
  • 1/4 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Italian Herb mix basil, oregano, rosemary, thyme, marjoram

Instructions

  1. Combine yeast and sugar in a small bowl and add Luke warm water. Mix and allow the yeast to activate for a couple of minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, combine bread flour and all-purpose flour, mix, then add 2 tsp. Salt, mix again.
  3. Make a well in the middle and pour activated yeast. Mix, then add 1 tbsp. Olive oil.
  4. Pour water gradually, and start mixing. When you used all the water and everything is combined, flour your working surface.
  5. Take the pizza dough out and start kneading. Knead for about 20 minutes to release gluten, and becomes elastic or until the ball is smooth and firm, but still just a bit sticky. You can use Stand Mixer if you desire.
  6. Grease a large bowl with the remaining ½ tablespoon of olive oil, add the dough, dust with a bit of flour and cover the bowl with plastic wrap/film.
  7. Put it in a warm area and allow the dough to double in size, for about 1 to 2 hours.
  8. Preheat the oven to 475F/245C
  9. Flour the working surface again, and knead the dough for a couple of minutes, then, make a loaf and cut in half.
  10. Stretch the dough into thin crust (it will still rise a bit more when it’s baking). Stretch the dough to the end of the baking tin if possible. I used my hands, but you can use the rolling pin.

Recipe Notes

  • I used All-purpose flour and bread flour as you can see. The bread flour contains more gluten, oppose to all-purpose flour that contains around 10%.
  • The bread flour will give you a crispier crust, and all-purpose chewier. I combined both together because I think it is the best of both worlds. You can use one, or the other, depending on what you have in your pantry.
  • If you are using a stand mixer with a hook attachment, the process is much easier. It takes less time for you to personally knead. Since I used my hands for me took about 30 minutes all together just in mixing and kneading to bring the dough consistency and texture together.
  • Any other topping that you desire. I used mixed baby greens after the pizza was baked. If you would like to make one pizza, just cut the dough into two equal parts, and place one of the dough (balls) into a Ziplock bag, or large container with a fitted lid. It is good for the next 48 hours.
  • Before making pizza after refrigeration, you have to let it come to almost room temp. Just leave it on the countertop for about 20 minutes. It is easier to roll out. You can also make rolls, dinner rolls, flatbread, pizza rolls, and so on.
  • Topping: Add Pizza sauce, homemade or store-bought (pasta sauce would work too). Add sliced fresh mozzarella cheese, or a couple of handfuls of the shredded pizza cheese blend, which contains I believe over 5 kinds of cheese together. Sprinkle with Grated Parmesan Cheese and Italian herb mix, and always bake at high temperature, preheated oven. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until the crust is golden and cheese is melted completely. You can add other toppings, but I served it with baby greens (spinach, baby chard, etc.). Rocket or Arugula would make super topping too.
