      1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
      1 cup warm water (110 degrees F)
      3 cups all-purpose flour
      1 egg
      1 tablespoon butter
      1 tablespoon white sugar
      1 teaspoon salt
      1 cup cooked ham, diced
      1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
      1/2 cup chopped pimento
      1/4 cup pitted olives, chopped


      In a small mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let
      stand until creamy, about 10 minutes. In a large mixing
      bowl, combine the yeast mixture with the flour, egg, butter,
      sugar and salt; mix well. When the dough has pulled together,
      turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until
      smooth, about 8 minutes. Lightly oil a large mixing, place
      the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with
      a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in
      volume, about 1 hour. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine
      the ham, cheese, pimento and olive in a medium mixing bowl;
      set aside. Deflate the dough and turn it out onto a lightly
      floured surface. Roll or pat the dough into a 10×14 inch
      rectangle. Make parallel cuts 3/4 inch wide and 2 inches
      long on the two long edges of the rectangle. Evenly spread
      the filling mixture over the center of the rectangle. Fold
      the short ends of the rectangle over the filling. Starting
      from one of these ends; alternately stretch strips from
      the two sides across the filling so that the strips overlap
      diagonally. Transfer the loaf to a lightly greased baking
      sheet, cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled
      in volume, about 40 minutes. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 to
      30 minutes or until golden brown.

      Makes: 1 loaf

        • Ohhh yumm!  That sounds fantastic!  I have to admit though, me and bread dough don’t get along very well.  I cheat and buy Pillsbury or whatever french dough loaf and stuff it with all sorts of things from sausage and spinach and cheese to just veggies or a combo of both.  I bow to your yeast-a-bilities!

          Thank you!
