A few months ago, I brought my 12 year old, Erica to a cooking show. She watched the gals from Pantry Secrets make a “dessert braid” and literally went home and made her first braid that night. Since the cooking show, she’s probably made them about 12 times, changing up the filling to suit her cravings! She loves it and she got good at it really fast. So, today after dance, I had her make a vegetable pizza braid for us for dinner. It is quick and easy to do!
First, we started with a regular bread recipe( we did use the Pantry Secrets recipe), and let it rise for 30 minutes.
Then, she rolls the dough out and fills the center with her fillings. For this, we used
- marinara sauce
- and fresh tomatoes
- and mozzarella cheese.
Then, by slicing the sides into 1 inch thick sections, we have the dough ready to braid it.
Then, alternately cross the sections to the middle and overlap
Then we put it in the oven at 350 for 25 minutes!
Check out our video to watch Erica making this!
