Transcript: How-To Video: Braided Stuffed Pizza Bread

It’s a great new twist on an old favorite! Our hearty, braided stuffed pizza bread, featuring Hormel® Pepperoni, is so delicious – they’ll think you bought it at some fancy Italian deli!

First, heat the oven to 400°F. On a greased baking sheet, roll out and press refrigerated pizza crust dough into a 14-inch by 11-inch rectangle. Spread garlic and herb cheese lengthwise down the center third of the rectangle. Top with 20 slices of Hormel® Pepperoni, 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, and freshly grated Parmesan cheese. Fold the short ends of dough 1-inch over the filling. Along the 14-inch sides, make cuts, 1-inch apart -- cutting from the edge to within a ½-inch of the filling. To give the braided appearance, fold dough strips at an angle over the filling, alternating from side to side. In a small bowl, beat together egg yolk and 1 teaspoon of water. Brush mixture over the braid and sprinkle with poppy seeds. Bake 11 to 16 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with pizza sauce.

A delicious, eye catching appetizer that’s sure to quickly disappear!
