Pizza Stuffed Bread
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6
  • 500g strong white flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 7g sachet fast-action dried yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp runny honey
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • up to 350ml lukewarm water
  • a littleoil for greasing
  • a tomato sauce for the base - I just used tomato puree mixed with some garlic puree and some basil
  • grated cheese - approx 50g
  • 1 packet of ham approx 120g
  • 1 beaten egg (egg wash)
  1. *Make the dough* (I used my Kenwood Mixer)
  2. Place the flour, basil, yeast, honey and salt into a large bowl of a stand alone mixer
  3. Make a well in the middle and pour in the water.
  4. Using the dough hook, switch the mixer on low to start with (to avoid flour flying everywhere) and then aftr about 1 minute, increase the speed to medium and knead the dough for at least 10 mins until smooth and elastic.
  5. Then place the dough in a clean oiled bowl, cover with a damp tea towell, cling film, or like me, a carrier bag, and leave to rise until doubled in size. I foudn this took about an hour
  6. Once risen, gently knock back the dough by tipping it back onto a floured surface and push the air out.
  7. Then roll the dough out in to an oblong approx 40 x 25 cm which is not too thin or too thick
  8. Spread the tomato sauce over the base, scatter the ham and then the cheese
  9. Carefully, tuck in the smaller sides, and then roll into a long sausage shape ensuring that the fold is at the bottom.
  10. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper and place the loaf on to it, cover with a bag and leave to proof for 30 minutes
  11. Pre heat the oven to 200oC / 180oC (fan)
  12. Then brush the loaf with the beaten egg and place in the oven for 30 minutes until golden brown and puffed up
  13. Leave to cool before slicing to serve.
