This Sausage Bread might just be the most versatile recipe in your recipe box! It's perfect as an appetizer, a weeknight dinner recipe, serve it on game day, or take it along on picnics or potlucks.


  • 1 lb. ground sausage
  • 1 tube (13.8 oz.) refrigerated pizza dough
  • 2 cups (8 oz.) Mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 large egg, beaten, for brushing on top of loaf


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside. 
  2. Crumble and brown the sausage in a skillet over medium heat, until no longer pink. Drain, if desired. 
  3. Open the tube of pizza dough onto the prepared baking sheet and straighten edges into a rectangle. Sprinkle cooked sausage and Mozzarella cheese over the dough, leaving about 1-inch open along the edges. Roll up the dough jelly-roll or cinnamon-roll style, crimping the seam closed and sealing and tucking the ends under.  Make sure the bread is seam-side down on the baking sheet. Brush the loaf with beaten egg. 
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the bread is cooked through. Allow loaf to rest 10 minutes before slicing.
