MMMMMMMMMMMMM. This was super easy and especially good ! I have seen the blooming breads floating around pinterest the last couple of months but had decided it would be something to make when I had several people around because Bill and I could not eat a whole loaf (or I should say we should not eat a whole loaf) of bread (because this was so good we probably could eat a whole loaf....lol) While browsing the bakery goods the other day I came across these Portuguese Rolls. The texture feels like Italian Bread. The blooming bread says to use a loaf of round sour dough bread. But I figured why could I not use these smaller rolls that way Bill and I could share one and not have a lot left over to go to waste.
It is super easy to assemble. You just cut your roll lengthwise and then across the bun almost all the way through. In the next step I took my garlic butter mixture and my basting brush and basted the roll down inside the slices with the garlic butter. Then take your sliced mozzarella cheese and pepperoni and place inside all the crevices. Roll it up and throw it in the pan..... just kidding, I was having a flashback there with bakers man......hehehe. Roll it up in some foil and put in the oven.
Bill and I have been busy since the kids have started back to school. Both the kids moved into new apartments this year. Which means they needed some furniture. We decided to make our living room into a dining room and the old dining room into my office area so Cally took the couch and tables and Billy took the love set. Bill and I have been busy trying to install a new floor. We have put down laminate flooring before with no problem at all but this flooring that we picked out this time is being a pain in the rear to install. It is suppose to snap together, well there is no snapping these planks together we are having to hammer them in. Here is a peek of what we have been working on
We have laminate down right beside this room but we could not get the same flooring to match because the manufacture of that flooring quit making it. So we choose to pick a totally different color of flooring so it did not look like we tried to match it up and failed. For now we have a big mess but we are hoping to get this project finished this weekend. I will post more pictures after we complete my new Dining room and office area.
Blooming Pizza Roll

Choice of bread roll
3 slices mozzarella cheese slices
pepperoni slices, halved
3 Tbsp melted butter
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut the roll lengthwise and then across almost all the way through. Place bread on a foil lined baking sheet. Melt the butter and mix with the garlic powder and Italian seasoning. With a pastry brush, brush the melted butter mixture all over and down inside the slices of bread. Next place the cheese and pepperoni slices inside the crevices of the bread. Finally brush some melted butter all over the top of the bread and sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese topping. Wrap bread in the foil and bake in the oven for 10 minutes. Unwrap and continue baking for 15 more minutes. Break pieces of the bread off and dip in warm pizza sauce.
