Roasted Vegetable Bread

Roasted vegetables on homemade bread. I guess if there was cheese it would be a pizza. Either way its so delicious. Not to mention healthy. I love this as a side for dinner or for a party, you can cut it into squares and serve.

Ingredients

FOR THE DOUGH:
2 teaspoons Active Dry Yeast
1 cup Warm Water
2 Tablespoons Sugar
1 Tablespoon Honey
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1 teaspoon Salt
2 cups Flour
_____
FOR THE ASSEMBLY:
1 whole Red Bell Pepper, Seeded And Sliced
1 whole Red Onion, Sliced
2 cloves Garlic Smashed And Sliced
½ cups Black Olives, Halved
½ cups Green Olives Halved
1 cup Fresh Spinach, Chopped
2 cups Fresh Broccoli Washed And Chopped
½ teaspoons Each, Salt And Pepper
3 Tablespoons Olive Oil, Divided

Preparation Instructions

Proof the yeast in the water until foamy. In a stand mixer, mix the water, yeast, sugar, honey and oil. Then mix in 1 cup flour and the salt. Continue mixing in all the remaining flour until you get a nice sticky dough. Knead with dough hook attachment for 5 minutes in the stand mixer.
Pour dough into a lightly greased bowl and cover tightly (with a lid or plastic wrap). Let rise 1 hour. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Place your chopped/sliced/prepped vegetables in a large bowl and pour 2 Tablespoons of olive oil over the top. Add salt and pepper. Toss to coat, set aside.
Grease a baking sheet and spread the dough with a rubber spatula (it won’t be neat, and it will be sticky). Brush dough with olive oil, and place vegetables on top. Bake about 15 minutes until crust is golden brown and vegetables have a nice brown color to them. It will be a thin crusty crust.
