This is the recipe you need if you have a craving for pizza but don’t want to mess around making pizza dough and sauce. All the classic flavors of a pepperoni pizza are stuffed into this easy quick bread, including mozzarella, pepperoni, and sun-dried tomatoes.
Special equipment: You will need a metal 9-by-5-inch loaf pan for this recipe. Loaf pans can be purchased at most cooking supply stores and at many large grocery stores.
Game plan: You can also use this recipe to bake savory muffins instead of bread—just use a standard 12-well muffin pan. Coat the wells generously with olive oil and bake the muffins at 350°F until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Let the muffins cool for 10 minutes, then remove them from the pan and finish cooling on a wire rack.
