Stromboli Ladder Loaf Recipe

Stromboli Ladder Loaf Recipe

In Greensboro, North Carolina, Chrystie Wear whips up homemade bread in her bread maker for this tasty filled pizza. “For variation, add veggies to the filling or make it a Rueben with salad dressing, corned beef, sauerkraut and Swiss cheese,” recommends Chrystie.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + rising Bake: 20 min. + standing YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups water (70° to 80°)
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons nonfat dry milk powder
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups bread flour
  • 3 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • FILLING:
  • 3/4 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 package (3-1/2 ounces) sliced pepperoni
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tablespoon water

Directions

  • 1. In bread machine pan, place the first eight ingredients in order suggested by manufacturer. Select dough setting (check dough after 5 minutes of mixing; add 1-2 tablespoons of water or flour if needed). When cycle is completed, turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Roll into a 15-in. x 12-in. rectangle. Place on a greased baking sheet.
  • 2. Spread pizza sauce in a 3-in.-wide strip lengthwise down the center of dough to within 2 in. of ends. Arrange pepperoni over sauce; sprinkle with cheeses. On each long side, cut 1-in.-wide strips about 2-1/2 in. into center. Starting at one end, fold alternating strips at an angle across filling. Pinch ends to seal.
  • 3. Beat egg white and water; brush over dough. Bake at 425° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting. Yield: 1 loaf (2 pounds).
Editor's Note: We recommend you do not use a bread machine's time-delay feature for this recipe.
