Pizza Bread

Mr. Smith Summary got creative in the kitchen this weekend y'all and I just had to share!

See, he makes a mean sweet beer bread; we make a lot of that in the winter to enjoy fresh bread with our dinners on cold nights.  Lately he's been thinking of things to add to the standard recipe and voila, pizza bread was born!  It truly is a meal in and of itself.

Tell me that doesn't look delish!!

We have a local pizza shop that makes THE best pepperoni breadsticks, which is what inspired this recipe.  I even bought some pizza sauce to dip with!

Yes, we ate off paper plates this weekend.  Don't judge.

Now that your mouth is watering - you want in on the recipe??!!

Pizza Bread
3 cups self-rising flour
3 tablespoonful sugar
1-12oz beer
5oz pepperoni, chopped
1 tablespoonful minced garlic
Italian seasoning to taste (we used about 1 tablespoonful)
1/2 stick butter, melted
Salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix flour, sugar, and beer - we use our stand mixer for this.  It gets pretty sticky.  Once the base dough is made, add pepperoni, garlic, and Italian seasoning while continuing to mix to incorporate throughout the dough.  Pour into a greased loaf pan and bake for 50 minutes.  After 50 minutes, pour melted butter on top of bread and sprinkle with salt and bake for an additional 10 minutes.

Let the bread sit for about 10 minutes once out of the oven to form a good crust before cutting.  Serve by itself or with pizza sauce for dipping.
