*Note: This recipe is very much inspired by and based on Steamy Kitchen’s EXCELLENT No-Knead Bread Recipe. Thank you for opening my eyes and making me realize I do NOT need a breadmaker to have delicious bread in the mornings. :)
I am SO excited about sharing this with you! I made this today and it was the best pizza bread I’ve ever tasted – I can’t believe how easy it was! When I was a little girl my parents made pizza bread with a bread machine and I don’t think it was as easy as this was. :)
I can’t wait to make more loaves… and I need to because ours is gone already.
In one day. Yep, it’s good! I told you!
So are you ready to make this bread yourself?
You’re going to need these ingredients:
3 cups flour (bread flour is recommended but you CAN use all-purpose)
1/2 tsp yeast (I used active dry)
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups warm water
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1-2 cups cheese (it’ll depend on how cheesy you like it)
1 cup chopped pepperoni slices
Any other toppings you like on your pizza!
Add the garlic salt, too!
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and leave it in a warm place for 12 or more hours.
I usually make mine at night before bed then throw it in the oven the next morning, that way I’m
not tortured by the rising dough all day long. ;-)
Wet your hands before touching the dough or it’ll stick to you!
Transfer the dough from the bowl to a floured surface.
(You can let it rest for 1 hour if you just can’t wait)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees!
About 20 minutes before the 2 hours rising time is up, stick your pan with a lid
or anything oven-safe into the oven to pre-heat. I used a pie pan because that’s what I had. :)
And it worked just fine!
I covered mine with aluminum foil.
It was smelling SO good, we could hardly wait!
Good luck waiting for it to cool!
So are you ready to make this or WHAT? :)
And you really can’t go wrong with this recipe, or mess up. It’s very forgiving.
I do want to figure out how to add olive oil to this recipe – I’ll update it when I’ve tried it. :)
