Making this bread is simple and you can substitute any meats you have on hand. Feel free to use more varieties of meats. I had a few slices of salami, so I added them. I used store bought fresh pizza dough from the market but you can follow the recipe below and make your own.
I suggest you make 2 and save one for the next day. It’s also a perfect treat to bring along for your next party this Holiday Season! 🙂
Watch this video of the bread fresh out of the oven!
1 + 1/2 pound of store bought pizza dough or make your own (recipe below)
1 small chourico or linguica sausage (cut into thin slices)
3 or 4 slices of ham (cut into strips)
3 slices of salami (optional, cut into strips)
1 medium onion (sliced)
1 medium red pepper (sliced)
1 cup of shredded cheese
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon olive oil
1 tablespoon of coarse corn meal
3 1/2 cups of flour
1 teaspoon sugar
1 envelope instant dry yeast
2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 cups warm water
2 tablespoons olive oil
In a medium bowl mix the dry ingredients. Add the water and oil and mix until a ball forms. It you find the dough too sticky add more flour. Grease a large bowl with olive oil and add the dough rolling it to coat with the oil. Cover with plastic wrap, cover with a warm towel, and place in a warm place for about 1 hour until the dough doubles in size.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Saute the onions and peppers for a few minutes in 1 tablespoon olive oil until translucent and set aside to cool
Roll out the dough into a large rectangle. Add a layer of onions followed by a layer of meat.
Sprinkle the corn meal on a large sheet pan or pizza pan. Place the bread on pan. Brush with a little olive oil.
Let cook slightly before cutting. Take a bite and start drooling! Enjoy!
