Ingredients

Pretzel Dough

Spinach and Artichoke Filling

Instructions

  • 1. to make the dough. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the water, yeast, honey, 3 1/2 cups flour, salt, and butter. Using the dough hook, mix until the flour is completely incorporated, about 4-5 minutes. if the dough feels too sticky, add the remaining 1/2 cup of flour.
    2. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let sit at room temperature for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
    3. Meanwhile, make the filling. In a medium bowl, combine the mascarpone, fontina, parmesan, garlic, thyme, and a pinch of crushed red pepper and salt. Stir in the spinach and artichokes. 
    4. Line a 9x5 inch loaf pan with parchment paper. 
    5. When the dough has doubled in size, punch it down and turn out onto a floured surface. Roll the dough into a rectangle about 1/4 inch thick. Evenly spread the dough with the filling. Cut the rectangle into about 16 equal squares. Stack the squares into 4x4 stacks (see above photo) and then arrange the squares vertically in the prepared loaf pan. Cover the pan with a clean towel and let rise for 20-30 minutes, until puffy. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. 
    6. Brush the top of the bread with water and sprinkle with coarse salt. Transfer the bread to the oven and bake for 35-45 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the bread is cooked through. Remove from the oven and let sit 5 minutes. Carefully lift the dough out of the pan and transfer to a serving plate. Serve warm. Enjoy.
