Recipe type: lunch
  • 1 T yeast
  • 1 T sugar
  • 1½ c warm water
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 1 t. salt
  • 1 T Italian seasoning
  • 4-4½ cups bread flour (or a combination of bread flour and white wheat flour)
  • ½ pound of good quality ground sausage, cooked
  • 1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
  1. Combine your yeast and sugar then pour the warm water on top.
  2. Let this mixture sit for about 5 minutes.
  3. When your 5 minutes is up, add in the olive oil, salt, and Italian seasoning. Mix well.
  4. Slowly add in your bread flour. Your dough should be sticky but not so sticky that you can't handle it. Roll it into a ball and put it in a glass bowl, covered with a dish towel, to rise for about an hour or until doubled.
  5. When your dough has risen, roll it out on a lightly floured surface and cut it into large rectangles.
  6. Top with your cheese and sausage.
  7. Pull the edges of your dough together and seal them with your fingers. Roll this around a bit until you get a nice, even shape.
  8. Bake at 375° for 15-20 minutes or until the tops are nice and golden brown.
  9. Serve hot or cool and pack them in a lunch.
