This makes a yummy "light" meal; I will usually make it on a Saturday or Sunday night during the holidays and serve it with a salad. I've also divided the dough in half to make two smaller loaves for appetizers. It tastes delicious both warm and at room temperature.
1 lb. ground Italian sausage (or cut links out of their casing)
1 lb. pizza dough
8 oz. mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/2 c. flavored bread crumbs
1 tsp. garlic salt (or more to taste)
1/2 tsp. parsley
Fry sausage, drain, and cool. Add eggs, bread crumbs, garlic salt, and parsley. Add cheese to mixture. Roll dough into a rectangle and sprinkle filling over top. Roll up from the short end, pinching ends and tucking underneath. Make 2 or 3 slits on top of the bread, rub with butter or olive oil, and sprinkle with oregano. Bake at 375 for 35 minutes. Allow to cool for a few minutes and then cut into slices. Serve with pizza/marinara sauce
