Mexican Salty Bread Pizza

As promised, here is a fun recipe to use with the Red Chicken posted last week!

Normally we use it for tacos or rice bowls, but when the Salty Bread Gods smile down on you, you change things up. As many of you know, Steven Michael is a wholesale baker at a local Rochester area bread bakery, Amazing Grains Bread Co. This particular bakery is known specifically for their absolutely AMAZING salty bread. I really can’t gush enough about this stuff, and I apologize to our readers outside of Rochester because you are seriously missing out. I (and pretty much everyone else) have been known to down an entire loaf on my own without even realizing it. In fact, the owners often joke about people coming in and ordering two loaves, one for the ride home and one to share with their families.

So, when Steven came home from work with two loaves of the good stuff (he’s one of very few people that can resist the salty temptation for a whole car ride), he knew exactly what to do with it – Mexican Salty Bread Pizzas! He turned it into garlic bread, loaded them up with Red Chicken and cheese, and threw them in the oven. The result was salty, garlicy, cheesy, taste bud heaven. Gullet stuffing commenced immediately. (On a side note, my bestie who proof reads all of these posts for me, hates when I say “gullet”. Challenge accepted!)

What is that one local food you just can’t get enough of? Tell us about it in the comments below!
