This recipe is from the Girl Talk blog. My friend, Johanna, made it for us, and it has quickly become a family favorite!
2 - 16 oz. loaf frozen bread dough, thawed
¼ pound thinly sliced ham
¼ pound sliced hard salami
½ tsp. dried whole basil, divided
½ tsp. dried whole oregano, divided
3 oz. sliced provolone cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 Tbs. butter, melted
Place bread dough on a lightly greased baking sheet, pat into a 15x10 rectangle. Arrange ham slices lengthwise down the center; place salami on top. Sprinkle with ¼ tsp. basil and ¼ tsp. oregano. Arrange provolone cheese over herbs, and top with mozzarella cheese; sprinkle with remaining herbs. Moisten all edges of dough with water. Bring each long edge of dough to center; press edges together securely to seal. Seal ends. Brush dough with 1 T. butter. Carefully invert and brush top with remaining butter. Bake 375* for 20 to 22 minutes. Serve with your favorite jar of spaghetti sauce. Yields: 8 servings.
A few tips from Johanna (You might not need the tips because you are probably smarter than me when it come to bread dough)
1. The directions on the bread dough package will probably give you a quick thawing option which takes a couple of hours. You can do it much quicker by defrosting it in the microwave. Make sure you wrap the frozen dough in plastic wrap before you microwave it because it will dry out.
2. Make one for dinner and then freeze the other one. Don't forget to use plastic wrap with a little cooking spray.
