We’ll show you how to eat your bread and basket, too.
Making your own homemade bread bowl is easier than you’d ever guess! Start with two tubes of Pillsbury pizza crust.
From here, it’s just three basic thingos that you needos. Metal bowl, knife, crust.
Start by spraying the outside of the bowl with nonstick baking spray.
Now, open the dough and unroll it. Cut the pizza dough rectangles into small strips, about ½” wide.
To start the weave, lay half of your dough pieces along a piece of parchment, or very large cutting board. Create the weave by threading the dough through the pieces you’ve laid down, starting with the center piece.
Working from the center out, weave the dough strips through each other. The dough pieces should be no more than ½” apart from each other.
Gently press the dough together once woven, especially around the ends and edges.
Then, invert your weave on top of the prepared bowl.
That sounds like a hair thing. It’s a dough thing! Don’t get confused.
If there are big pieces hanging off, just slice off the parts that are way too big for their britches.
Then, tuck the edges around the edges of the bowl, rolling them to create a pretty “lip” for your bread bowl.
Now you’re ready to bake! Just toss your metal bowl into a preheated oven and let it bake until golden brown, about 18-22 minutes.
Toss our pretty Spring Spinach Salad into the bowl once it’s baked and cooled. Serve up the salad ... and serve up the bowl!
Such a fun recipe for being so easy!
Way to go, you basket weaving diva, you.
