great recipe man, simple and easy. after making the dough and letting it sit over night, i cut two nice sized chunks (about the size of a baseball) and knead them in a little more flour, just so they weren't sticky like pizza bread. then i flattened them out in a long oval shape, and put a layer of pizza sauce, then mozzarella cheese, then pepperoni, then more cheese, and more pepperoni then i closed it up with eggwash and made my own pizza pockets, SO DOPE!
Thank you for sharing this lovely recipe Sheynath. It was so quick and easy to make. It turned out great...I was so impressed. I often have trouble making dough, but not this time. It was easy to work with and the results were delicious. I served them warm with some fresh churned butter, they were perfect with our clam chowder.
I am a huge fan of long slow fermentation when it comes to bread - especially if the long fermentation time involves a spell in the fridge. This dough was lovely to work with, I used unbleached bread flour and instant yeast. I reduced the amount of butter by half and added some dried fruit + mixed spice. Instead of rolls I shaped two loaves and have been eating the bread as fruit toast in the morning - yum. Thanks for posting, made for Aussie/Kiwi Swap, July 2009
