Whats with the nautical reference in the title? Just asking for a friend.......
Don’t know......that’s her screen name and she’s one of the best cooks around.

When she’s back on here we’ll ask her. Unless one of the other cooks know.

Ok. Baked it the full time and it’s delicious. Wondering if my dough is a smaller quantity? The ratio dough to filling isn’t right. My dough didn’t fill a cookie sheet and its too thin. But really good.

Looks dern good to me, now I'm hungry. lol Man that looks good!
Ohhh Thank you. I don’t cook much these days. No time.

Its not bad. 😌 but too much pepperoni. Im writing down my quantities now, for next time. And I used half shaved parmesan but worried cause it doesn’t melt easily but this melted with good flavor. Daughter had bought an Italian blend shredded cheese, for me, but i had some on crackers to sample and thought it was bland so didn’t use it. It will be fine on an omelette.

I always thought the two knots represent her and her husband. Her profile used to talk about the two of them. I don't know if it still does. There are several kinds of wedding rings with knots.

Nah: Her husband is Mr. Knot, and she is Mrs. Knot.

Hence Two Knots.

She explained it on the first post she made, years ago.

Made a joke that he was the Head Knot.

Reverse that to get Knot-head.

ED

And Rae: that does look great.

Too much bread for me, but still looks tasty.

Starting over, just saw this...your sausage bread looks delicious.
It’s about 1/3 cup pepperoni ( a handful ) Store bought pizza is good for this
purpose, but it’s not as easy to stretch as homemade dough. Homemade
stretches out bigger than the pan and has to be shaped into a crescent to fit the pan.
You said it was delicious, I hope so.
Nic, you are correct about the knot ring.

LOL, Ed...he’s also the head groundskeeper, and the boss - outside!

She's probably busy cooking. I see a parenthesis not a 1 & 1/3. Which did you use?
I used about 3/4 cup which was too much. But just ate some and its delicious if I do say so. Only had a sliver earlier. Dough was only $2.99 so I’m making another as I have lots of leftover ingredients. Daughter really liked it but likes Calzones (with Ricotta in filling) better so I’ll try those next time I feel like cooking.

Yours looks better, but, don't tell her! 😊

TK, thanks for the detailed recipe. One reason I like it is no one else around here makes it. Ok, glad to know store dough doesn’t stretch. I tore a hole trying to stretch it then tried patching it like pie dough. (Didn’t work). You’re so great for sharing your recipes which are like a work of art.

Starting over, have you ever made your own dough? With the food processor it so easy,
you can make it in 40 seconds and only kneed it for 30 seconds. One you make it, you’ll
love the easy way it spreads on a pan.
