Learn How To Make Pizza, Cinnamon Raisin & White Bread

I can’t believe I am saying this…but I made bread…From Scratch…and it was MUCH easier than I thought! I will openly admit that I messed up on my first try by adding double the yeast, but the 2nd try worked out great 😉 I love bread, but when Good Cook asked us to post a bread recipe I wanted to make something that everyone in my family would enjoy…and that meant 4 different loaves. Thank goodness I have the Good Cook Mini Loaf Pan! My son loves pizza so I did a Pizza Bread for him, my daughter likes plain so I did one plain, and my husband likes cinnamon raisin so he got a loaf too.

In fact, my son ate the one Pizza Bread for dinner that night…thank goodness that was the one I made two of, so the rest of us could at least get a taste 😉

Now, if I can make several varieties…I promise you that you can too! Just find the filling that you think your family would enjoy. I do suggest really loading your bread up with your favorite toppings, the more the better!

Here are my three homemade bread recipes.  I made one for breakfast, lunch and dinner 😉

  • Oven



  • 1 ½ cups lukewarm water
  • 2 ¼ tsp instant yeast
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 4 cups bread flour
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter

Filling for Pizza Bread

  • ¼ cup pizza sauce more or less depending on your taste
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ¼ cup mini pepperonis

Filling for Cinnamon Raisin Bread

  • ¼ cup raisins
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon sugar


  • Combine all of the bread ingredients and mix with bread hook with electric mixer
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and set aside for about 1 hour – dough will double in size
  • Flour your work surface
  • Spray the wells of bread pans with baking spray - if you are making all varieties at once, you will need 4 mini loaf pans.
  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • After the bread dough has risen put it on your work surface and cut into 4 equal rectangles (if you are using a mini loaf pan! This is for 4 bread loaves)
  • Place your fillings on the rectangle (bread dough) and leave about a 1/2 inch topping-free
  • Roll the dough tightly starting at the end with the toppings. The more rolls you have the more swirls you will have in your bread
  • Pinch the seam and ends shut to keep your fillings inside and place the loaf in the pan seam-side down
  • Complete these steps for each loaf
  • Cover the dough with plastic wrap
  • Set your dough aside for about 20 to 30 minutes. The dough will rise again. However, not all your loaves will rise equally
  • Remove the plastic wrap and bake at 350 degrees for approx 25 minutes or until golden brown
  • Remove the bread loaves from the pan and let them cool on a rack
  • Enjoy!


You can also top the dough right before baking with an egg wash to give your loaves a nice and shiny look to them when they are done.
If you are simply making the white bread, obviously you will not include the toppings.  You will still roll up the rectangle, starting on the short end, into a very tight cylinder. Pinch to seal the seams and the ends, tuck the ends of the roll until the bread, and place into prepared loaf pans.

    1. Thanks for such amazing recipes 🙂 I actually just made the mini loaves again last weekend – I got a few more rolls in this time! My son will eat that Pizza Bread for lunch and dinner daily if I let him!
