Today I tried the TikTok food trend #pizzababka to see how tasty it actually was. Let me tell you, it is not as easy as it looks on the app but everything tends to work out when you get the ingredients into the bread pan! More importantly, the recipe turns out delicious!
22 oz pizza dough
flour (as needed)
2/3 cup pizza sauce
8 oz sliced mozzarella
5 oz pepperoni
black pepper, onion salt (as needed)
Dust cutting board and dough with flour and roll out the pizza dough to approximately 14"x16"
Spread out the pizza sauce on the dough
Place the mozzarella slices on top of the pizza sauce
Place the pepperoni on top of the mozzarella
Roll the dough up like a jelly roll
Make a cut down the middle of the roll (along the long side) and have the cut side facing up
Braid half of the dough over the other in an X shape
Spray the 9x5 bread pan with nonstick spray
Place the braided dough in the pan
Cover with plastic wrap and let it sit in a warm place for 1 hour (or until the dough doubles in size)
Preheat the oven to 375°F
Once the dough has risen, sprinkle black pepper and onion salt on top
Place the dough in the oven for 35 minutes
Let the bread cool and serve with pizza sauce!
