Hearty Pizza Pull-Apart Bread
Gang/Type: Snack
Ergibt/Yield: 1 Bread
For the cashew mozzarella:
For the dough:
  • 500 g (17.6 oz) flour
  • 1 pk dry active yeast
  • 2 tsp salt
  • about 300 ml (1 1/4 cup) lukewarm water
For the tomato sauce:
  • 100 g (3.5 oz) tomato paste
  • 200 ml (3/4 cup plus 1 tbsp) water
  • 1 tbsp oregano
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • pepper
  • 1 bunch basil
  1. Make the cashew mozzarella first. Blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth. Then add the psyllium husks and mix in for a few seconds. Pour the mass into a greased square plastic container and refrigerate for 2 hours to firm.
  2. For the yeast dough thoroughly knead all ingredients until a soft dough forms. I put it in my machine for at least 5 minutes. Dust with flour, cover and let rise in a warm spot until it doubled its size. It usually takes 1 hour with me.
  3. For the tomato sauce put all ingredients in a shaker or screw top jar and shake until combined. Roughly chop the basil. Grease a loaf pan (25 cm - 10 inches).
  4. Roll out the dough on the dusted counter in a rectangle shape 0.5 cm (0.2 inches) thick. Spread the tomato sauce on and drizzle over the basil. Remove the cashew mozzarella from the container and cube it with a knife. Arrange the mozzarella cube evenly on the pizza - it is very sticky… But you have to go through this!
  5. Now it gets messy: Cut the pizza with a pizza roller into squares (about 12 cm x 12 cm - 5 in x 5 in), stack them to a pile and then place upright in the loaf pan. I stacked 5 - 6 squares and then placed them in the pan. It's easier than to try one big pile. It's ok if it is a bit messy in the pan.
  6. Cover the bread and let rise again for 15 minutes. Then place in the lower third of the cold oven and put it on 180° C (360° F). After 45 - 50 minutes the bread is done. If it is tanned enough before that, cover with some aluminum foil to prevent burning.
With a pizza roller it is easy to cut the squares. If you don't have a high-speed blender but a Personal Blender, you can grind the cashews before mixing them with the other ingredients. If you have neither let the cashews soak in water overnight or use cashew butter.
You can also cook "real" tomato sauce like this one: tomato sauce for pizza. Not up for yeast dough? Also try my bread with tomato and vegan mozzarella!
