With much of the nation’s restaurants and taprooms still limited by COVID-19 restrictions, more people than ever are drinking and cooking at home.
And in a masterful marketing move Oscar Blues has been circulating a series of beer-fueled recipes that are fun and pair brilliantly with different beers featured in CANundrum Mixed 15 Pack.
Their latest recipe combines the nation’s first canned craft beer, Dale’s Pale Ale, with everything we love about pizza.
So what’s not to like?
Dale’s Lazy Stuffed Pizza Bread
2 cups low-moisture mozzarella, shredded
1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
1 tsp dried basil
2 tbsp Dale’s Pale Ale
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to season
1 loaf, Italian or French bread
3 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup pepperoni slices, quartered
2 cups marinara sauce, for dipping (optional)
1, Heat oven to 400° F. Combine mozzarella, red onion, basil, and pale ale in a mixing bowl. Season and mix well to combine.
2. Using a bread knife, slice the bread on a diagonal about 1-1.5 inches apart. Repeat, slicing in the opposite direction to get a checkerboard effect. Be careful not to slice the bread all the way through.
3. Brush melted butter all over the bread and into the crevices. Gently stuff with cheese mixture, then with the pepperoni slices.
4, Wrap loaf in tin foil and bake for 15 minutes. Carefully unwrap foil and bake for 5 more minutes until the bread is lightly browned.
5. Serve warm, with marinara sauce if you like
Oskar Blues suggests that “you use one and drink two.” And we second that emotion…
