I love cheese. So much. Brie, cheddar, ricotta, parmesan…the only cheese I don’t really love is bleu or gorgonzola. I mean, they’re alright. But anyways.
I also love bread. Carbs. Can’t get enough of em. Which is saddening, since I never have bread/pasta.
But tonight, I had both. IN ONE FOOD. It was glorious. So I shall share my discovery with you and you will bask in the glory of this cheesy bread.
I found this recipe on yummly.com, which found it on epicurious, which found it in Bon Appètit’s August 2006 edition. I did a couple of modifications 🙂
- Nonstick vegetable oil spray
- 1 10-ounce tube refrigerated pizza dough
- 3/4 cup garlic-and-herb cheese spread (such as Alouette), divided
- 3/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese, divided
- 3 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley, divided
- 1 small red onion, about 1/4 cup finely chopped
- 1 7- to 8-inch-long zucchini (yellow or green), chopped up pretty finely.
- Olive oil
Preheat oven to 400 F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper; butter the paper. Unroll dough onto parchment. Or if its just a hunk of dough, stretch it out so it’s an 8×8′ squareish shape. Spread half of herb cheese over 1 long half of dough, leaving 1/2-inch plain border. Sprinkle with half of Parmesan and 2 tablespoons parsley. Using parchment as aid, fold plain half of dough over filled half , but don’t seal the edges. Spread remaining herb cheese over top; sprinkle with remaining Parmesan. Sprinkle the veggies over the top of the bread; in lines or layers or however you please. The original recipe calls for the veggies to be sliced up in circles, but I think it’s way easier and quicker to just chop it all up and throw it on. Presentation is nice, but this is just as pretty. Sprinkle vegetables with oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake bread until puffed and deep brown at edges, about 24 minutes. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon parsley.
