Mummy Pizza Bread Recipe

Makes: 4 (8 inch) Mummies


  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon yeast
  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour (plus more for kneading)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • drizzle of olive oil
  • 1/4 cup tomato sauce
  • 6 ounces mozzarella, cut into strips
  • 4 leaves fresh basil


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a small bowl, combine warm water and honey. Sprinkle yeast on top; stir to combine. Let stand 5-10 minutes or until foamy.
  • In a medium bowl, combine flour and salt; then stir in yeast mixture. Stir until mixture forms a soft dough. Remove dough to a lightly floured surface. Knead 5 minutes or until dough is smooth and elastic, adding additional flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, as needed.
  • Coat a large bowl with olive oil, then place dough into the oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Place in a warm spot and allow to rest and rise for at least 15-20 minutes.
  • Once dough has risen, divide into 4 even pieces. Roll each piece into a 6 x 8” rectangle. Spoon 1 tablespoon of tomato sauce down center of dough, top with a few slices of mozzarella cheese and chopped basil. Using a pastry wheel make slanted incisions along each side of the dough towards the filling, leaving ½” between each incision.
  • To form the braid, alternate and overlap the strips of dough to cover filling from one side to the other until all dough is wrapped and covering the filling.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes until bubbly and golden. Enjoy!
