  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, roughly chopped
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. each red pepper flakes, oregano, and dried basil, mixed

  • Grease a loaf pan (I always line it with parchment, too).
  • On a floured work surface, roll the dough into a rectangle about 1/2 inch thick.
  • Sprinkle with cheese, spinach, basil, and sausage.
  • Roll dough over the fillings, pinching seam and ends shut and folding them over.
  • Place the roll, seam side down, into the prepare pan and let rest for 60 minutes.
  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and when ready to bake, brush the loaf with olive oil.
  • Sprinkle with spice mixture and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Bake for one hour or until top is browned and bread is firm.
  • Cool slightly before removing from pan.
  • Slice and serve warm or at room temp.
