Super Bowl Sunday

My beloved Indianapolis Colts didn't make it to the Super Bowl this year,  but the next best thing happened. The NY Giants made it and their quarterback, Eli Manning is the brother of Colts quarterback, Peyton Manning. So, I'll be cheering for the Giants on Sunday.

I've never been one that goes to a Super Bowl party. I usually just whip up some game day food and snacks for myself and my family. A favorite of mine to fix on football Sundays is a baked Pizza Sandwich. It's really easy to make and my family loves it.

Baked Pizza Sandwich

1 loaf frozen bread dough, thawed
2 eggs, separated
1 T. Parmesan Cheese
1 T. vegetable oil
1 t. dried oregano
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/4 t. pepper
8 oz. sliced pepperoni
2 c. shredded mozzarella cheese
1 4-oz. can sliced mushrooms
1/4 c pickled pepper rings
1 medium green pepper, diced
1 can sliced green or black olives, or both
1 15-oz. can pizza sauce

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On a greased cookie sheet, roll out the dough into a 15 x 10 inch rectangle. In a bowl, mix together the egg yolks, Parmesan chees, oil , oregano, garlic powder, and pepper. Brush the mixture over the dough, then add pepperoni, mozzerella cheese, mushrooms, pepper rings, green peppers, and olives. Roll up the dough like a jelly roll and pinch the seam to seal. Tuck the ends under.

Place the seam side down and brush the dough with the eggs whites. Immediately put into the preheated oven and bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown.  Slice the sandwich and serve with warm pizza sauce. Variation: you add or eliminate any ingredients to match what you like on your pizza.
