A taste of Philly in Southern California
One of the things my family really used to enjoy when we lived in Philadelphia was the pepperoni bread from Marciano's Bakery in Manayunk, right across the Schuylkill River from our house.
Since we had some friends from Philly visiting this weekend, I decided to take a shot at reproducing our favorite. I can't get the pic to upload, but you can see it at http://www2.snapfish.com/slideshow/AlbumID=1359101022/PictureID=40578588022/a=156993369_156993369/
Basically, I took my standard pizza dough, which I store in boules of 300g, and instead of spreading it, rolled it flat and roughly square, then filled it with a mix of mozzarella, hot pepper jack cheese and pepperoni slices. I let it proof for about 30 minutes, then baked it on parchment at 375 for half an hour.
Great for a Sunday football brunch. Only bad thing was that New Orleans creamed the Eagles ... oh well, there's always next week.
