Asha's Christmas Wreath Bread inspired me to cook something special for my Christmas party this weekend. Thank you so much Asha!! This is my version of Christmas Wreath Bread; not sweet but savory!! Ingredients:
1 tube of Ready-bake Pillsbury Pizza Crust.
2 spoons of dried Basil.
2 spoons of dried Oregano.
2 spoons of dried Thyme.
9-10 Garlic cloves finely chopped.
9-10 canned Jalapenos.
2 spoons of fresh black pepper powder.
1/2 cup of Parmesan Cheese shredded.
1 spoon of Paprika.
1 spoon of garlic butter ( Optional).
Mix the ingredients except the pizza crust.
Cut the Pizza crust lengthwise in 3 pieces.
Spread a little garlic butter on each piece.
Spread the mixture prepared in the middle of the each piece.
Fold the pieces to stuff the mixture.
Prepare 3 such pieces and make a braid.
Join the ends and create a circular wreath.
Decorate with Jalapinos or olives at the joints of the braid.
Beat one egg and add a little water to create egg-wash.
Apply the egg wash on the braid. Add little cheese for decoration.
Bake it on a non-stick plate for 350 degrees in a preheated oven till the out side of the wreath becomes golden brown.
