Sicilian Sausage Bread (Bignolati)
Looking for a really good appetizer for the holidays? This is delicious! Enjoy
Store bought Pizza dough (you can make your own if you are so inclined)
2 tbsp olive oil
2 large onions, thinly sliced
1 pound (450 grams) Circle B Ranch Sweet Italian Sausage
1/2 cup of Provolone cheese grated
A few tablespoons of Grated Romano Cheese
For the dough:
For the filling:
Prepare onions and sausage. In a large skillet on medium heat, sauté the onions in olive oil until golden, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and let cool.
In the same skillet, brown the sausage until no longer pink. Transfer to a bowl and let cool.
Preheat oven to 400F and cover a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Spread out the pizza dough to a 24'x 16' rectangle
Evenly spread out the onions on the dough, followed by the sausage. Top with Provolone and grated Romano Cheese
Roll the dough in a jelly roll fashion beginning with the long end closest to you. Once rolled, cut off excess loose dough on each end and shape into a small bun.
Transfer the rolled dough on the parchment covered baking sheet. Connect both ends to form a circle. Cut a few slits on the top and let rest, covered, for 1 hour.
Bake for 15 minutes, then reduce oven to 350F and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden. Let cool about 15 minutes before cutting into wedges.
