I am using your pizza dough recipe to make 1 pepperoni bread and 1 Cheddar-bacon bread. (Actually I doubled the dough, except for the olive oil, and 1 TBL yeast for the whole deal).

Oooh -- Cheddar bacon bread sounds like a yummy lunch box treat. Is that recipe on your blog?

It will be eventually! For now, use your pizza dough recipe. Roll out into a big rectangle. Brush with olive oil. Top with crumbled cooked bacon and some cheddar cheese (I had cheddar-jack & used that). A little sauteed onion might be great in there too.
Roll up tight like a jelly roll & seal the edges and ends. Slash on the top a few times.
Place on oiled baking sheet. Rise 1 hour. Bake 35 minutes at 375.

I've made this basic recipe often with pepperoni and mozzarella, using several different doughs. Your pizza dough has been the best one we've tried.
