Easy to Prepare Italian Sausage Bread



Giving a different twist to the traditional combination of sausages and bread, here is a mouth-watering Italian sausage bread recipe that you can prepare at home. This bread recipe uses prepared pizza dough, but if you have more time on your hands you can prepare the bread dough as well.
On your shopping list, you will need:
One regular pizza dough
1/2 kg of Italian sausages
1 teaspoon, or about 5 grams, of red chili flakes
5 grams of diced parsley leaves
5 grams of diced thyme leaves
150 grams of chopped onions (1 cup)
10 grams of yellow cornmeal
5 grams of chopped garlic
350 grams of grated mozzarella cheese
1 normal egg
2 tablespoons of water
5 ml of olive oil
Salt to taste
Prepare your oven before cooking the stuffing:
Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Take an 8x12 inch baking pan and bread sheet, and dust half of the cornmeal inside it.
To prepare the stuffing:
In a non-stick pan, heat the olive oil on medium heat (you could use regular refined oil, but Italian and olive oil sort of go together).
Put the sausages in the pan and let them cook for some time so that they are cooked from the inside and brown on the top. Keep turning in between to let them cook evenly.
Add the onions and let them cook for a few minutes until they are soft and translucent.
Add chopped garlic and let it cook for a few minutes.
Add the chopped thyme and parsley leaves to the mix and let them cook for a minute.
Add some salt and mix well so that the sausages are coated with herbs.
Add the red chili flakes, mix and take the mix off the heat.
Let the mix cool before using.
For the bread loaf:
Thaw the pizza dough.
Sprinkle the remaining cornmeal on a flat surface and knead the dough over it to a 10x14 inch rectangle.
Mix the egg with water.
Use this mix to brush the sides of the dough (one inch on each side).
Sprinkle half of the mozzarella cheese on the prepared dough.
Spread the sausage and herb mix on the cheese and sprinkle the rest of the cheese over it.
Roll the dough over the mix in a jelly roll style and seal the edges well.
Brush some of the egg white on top.
Bake in the preheated oven for about 40 minutes until the top crust is glossy golden brown.
Cool on a wire rack and cut in slices to serve.
You can serve this bread with butter, salsa and even as a side dish with gravy.
