Pizza Bread

Make Bread Sticks from this dough, or small loaves to eat with a meal. Or use it for an excellent taste teaser!

Jeanne's Arctic Appetizers - Churchill Wild



  • 1 1/2 cups spaghetti sauce  (375 ml)
  • 1/2 cup hot water  (125 ml)
  • 1 tbsp. sugar  (15 ml)
  • 1 tsp.  salt  (5 ml)
  • 3 tbsp. vegetable oil  (45 ml)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped jalapeño peppers  (60 ml)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tsp.  dried oregano, OR 2 tbsp. (30 ml) chopped fresh (10 ml)
  • 2 tsp.  dried basil, OR 2 tbsp. (30 ml) chopped fresh (10 ml)
  • 4 1/2 cups flour (approximately) (1.125 l)
  • 1 tbsp. instant yeast* (15 ml)
  •           butter OR margarine
  •           garlic salt

Preparation Instructions

1. In a large bowl, combine spaghetti sauce, water, sugar, salt, oil, jalapeños, garlic, oregano and basil. This mixture will have to be warmed a little if the hot water did not do the trick. Add 2 cups (500 mL) flour and the yeast*. Mix well with an electric mixer or a wire whisk.

2. Gradually add remaining flour and work into the dough either with the dough hook on your mixer or by hand. If by hand, turn dough out onto a well-floured surface and work flour into dough with a kneading motion, until dough feels soft and velvety, 8-10 minutes. You may need MORE or LESS flour.

3. Shape dough into a ball, place in a well-greased bowl, turning dough to grease the surface. Cover, put in a warm place and let rise until doubled in size, about an hour.

4. Punch down dough and shape as desired.

Next week we’ll give you a few variations on this recipe for bread sticks, and different ideas for serving the pizza bread.
