Italian Sausage Bread
1 lb. Italian sausage
4 oz. mozzarella cheese
1 can (2.25 oz.) pitted ripe olives, drained
1/4 fresh parsley, snipped
1 tsp Italian Seasoning Mix
2 packages (11 oz. each) refrigerated French bread dough
1 can (8 oz.) pizza sauce
Heat a large skillet over medium heat until hot. Cook sausages 6-8 minutes or
until sausage is no longer pink, breaking sausage into crumbles; drain &
transfer to a bowl.
Preheat oven to 400°F. Grate cheese. Chop olives. Snip parsley. Add olives,
parsley & seasoning mix to sausage mixture; mix well.
On large cutting board, unroll 1 package bread dough, forming a 12 x 10" square.
Spread half of the pizza sauce over dough to within 1" of edge. Spread half of
the sausage mixture over sauce. Starting at front edge, roll dough into a
cylinder; pinch to seal. Carefully transfer roll onto a rectangle stone. Repeat
with remaining dough, sauce & filling mixture to form a second roll; place on
baking baking stone.
Slice 8 diagonal cuts across top of each roll. Bake 25-30 minutes or until
golden brown. Slice into 1" slices using bread knife. Serve hot.
