Introduction: Braided Pizza Bread

I love pizza and I love bread. Then I thought why not combine the two. This Instructable will show you how to make one loaf of extremely delicious braided pizza bread.

* Also these directions use a bread machine.


1 1/2 tsp yeast

2 tbsp white sugar

1 tsp salt

2 cups bread flour or all-purpose flour

1 tbsp butter

1/3 cup milk

1/2 cup water

1 egg

1/2 cup mozzarella cheese

pepperoni as needed

pizza sauce(for dipping)

Step 1: The Dry Ingredients

First sprinkle the yeast evenly around the corners of the bread machine pan. Then add the sugar and salt. After that add the flour and oregano to the pan.

Step 2: The Wet Ingredients

After the dry ingredients add the milk, water and butter on top.

Step 3: Kneading and Rising

After adding all of the ingredients to the bread machine, set it on the dough cycle. On my bread machine this takes 1 1/2 hours which includes the rising.

Step 4: Braiding the Dough

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Here comes the fun part. Roll the dough into a log and with scissors cut the dough into three equal strips. Then smash the ends together. To braid it, always fold the outside strip into the middle while alternating sides(I hope that makes sense). Once you are finished braiding, fold the ends underneath the loaf to hide them.

Step 5: Baking the Bread

Next, scramble the egg to make a simple egg wash and brush it onto the bread with a pastry brush. Then spread the cheese over the loaf and place the pepperonis on top of that. Finally, bake the bread for 30 minutes in the preheated oven.

Step 6: Enjoy!

Serve with pizza sauce and Enjoy!
