Stromboli Ladder Loaf

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.

    This dough was nice and soft, great texture. Te only thing I might do different the next time is make two loafs, this makes a large loaf, just a little two much bread to filling, or maybe spread filling all over dough and roll up like pizza roll loaf.
