Pepperoni Bread

Serves 6

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/4 cups of gluten-free flour (I use Bob’s Red Mill)
  • 3 tablespoons of powdered buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 teaspoons of corn starch
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • 1 package of yeast (Red Star)
  • 3 Tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups of warm water
  • 1 package of gluten-free pepperoni (please remember that processed meats can have gluten in them as well)
  • 8 ounces of Colby Jack Cheese
  • 1 tablespoon of Italian seasoning (to sprinkle on top)

Instructions:

  1. In the mixing bowl of a stand mixer, place the flour, powdered buttermilk, baking powder, salt, corn starch, and sugar.
  2. Mix together until well blended and set aside.
  3. Then place the warm water, olive oil, and yeast with about 1 cup of the dry ingredients in a small bowl. Stir to combine. It may be a little lumpy, but that’s okay.
  4. Set the yeast mixture aside for about 30 minutes, or until the mixture is bubbly, and fragrant with the yeast.
  5. At that time, add the yeast mixture to the dry ingredients. Then mix at medium/medium-high for about 5 minutes, with the paddle attachment.
  6. The dough will be thick and a little sticky, but that’s okay. Cover the bowl, and let the dough rise for 45 minutes.
  7. Set the oven to 375, and grease a 9 X 13 baking dish.
  8. Oil your fingers and then add the dough into the 9 X 13 dish. Press the dough out to the edges of the dish.
  9. Leave the dough for about 10 minutes and then sprinkle the top with the Italian seasoning.
  10. Place the pepperoni slices over the top of the bread and sprinkle the shredded Colby Jack cheese.
  11. Then place the dish in the oven. Bake for 25 – 30 minutes or until the top springs back when touched.
  12. Remove the bread from the oven. Then remove from the dish and place onto a parchment paper-lined wire rack to cool. The bottom of the bread will be golden and crunchy. The top will be gooey with melted cheese and seasonings. Let the bread cool a bit, and then cut into generous pieces and serve immediately. Enjoy!

Notes:

We recommend using RED STAR brand yeast. This yeast is true to rise when used, whereas other brands do not always rise, and your bread will be flat. Also, you can buy powdered buttermilk on the baking aisle at most grocery stores.
