Superbowl... what a game!!!

So did you all have a GREAT weekend??? Did your team win the Superbowl??? I have to admit it was a pretty good game!!! I actually went down the road to a neighbors house for the game - but before I went I made some crab dip and some yummy pepperoni pizza bread!!!

I had mentioned on Facebook that I had made the bread and several people have asked for the recipe so I thought you might like it as well!!! It is super easy peasy to make - and oh did I say it is yummy??

Pepperoni Pizza Twist

1 package (3.5 ounces) pepperoni slices,
diced 1 can (3.25 ounces) pitted ripe olives,
drained and chopped (I use green)
2 tablespoons snipped fresh parsley
1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 garlic clove, pressed
2 packages (11 ounces each) refrigerated French bread dough
1 egg
1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning Mix
2 tablespoons (1/2 ounce) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
1 can (15 ounces) pizza sauce, warmed (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 375ºF. Dice pepperoni. Chop olives using. Snip parsley using kitchen shears. In a bowl, combine pepperoni, olives, parsley, mozzarella cheese, flour and garlic; mix well.

2. Place bread dough, seam sides up, on smooth side of a cutting board. Using a knife, slice each loaf lengthwise, end to end, cutting halfway through to center of loaf; spread open flat. Lightly sprinkle additional flour evenly over dough. Using a baker's roller, roll dough crosswise to a 4-inch width, creating a well down center of each loaf.

3. Spoon half of the pepperoni mixture down center of each loaf. Gather up edges over filling, pinching firmly to seal. Place loaves, seam sides down, in an "X" pattern on a rectangle stone. Crisscross ends of dough to form a large figure "8," keeping ends of dough 1 inch from edge of stone and leaving two 1 1/2-inch openings in center of twist.

4. Separate egg over small bowl. (Discard yolk or set aside for another use.) Beat egg white and seasoning mix; lightly brush over dough. Using serrated bread knife, cut a 3-inch slit in each of the top sections of the twist to reveal filling.

5. Grate Parmesan cheese over loaf. Bake 30-32 minutes or until deep golden brown. Remove to cooling rack; cool 10 minutes. Cut into 16 slices. Serve with warm pizza sauce, if desired.

Cook's Tip: If desired, 1/2 cup diced green bell pepper can be substituted for the olives.

Of course we all know that the BEST part of the Superbowl is actually the food and the commercials!! I didn't think the commercials were all that great this year - I mean there was a couple I thought were good - but not the best ever!!!!! What about you??? Was there any that you thought were just toooo funny???

But it was all good as there was yummy food and speaking of yummy food did I tell you that pizza bread is really good when you warm it up and eat it the next day... which I think I will do like - right now!!! Bahahaha!!

Until Next Time!
