My Easy Bread Recipe has been life changing for our family and is one of my most popular posts here on Gwen’s Nest. Have you tried it yet? Oh man…I wish I could slap a fresh hot slice of my pizza in front of you and change your life too.
If you *haven’t* discovered the Easy Bread recipe yet, then here it is.

Friday nights here at my Nest are pizza and movie night. But that’s not the only way to use up your easy bread dough. I’ve had several comments saying that they’ve let it sit for a couple of weeks in the fridge without using it. Look…that’s a travesty! Dinner is seriously less than a half hour away with a jar of easy bread in the fridge. This is like the healthy version of those pop open crescent rolls that were wrapped around anything that sat still in the 90’s.
But this is NOT the 90’s and I have started to care a lot more about my health and about fitting into my jeans. And if you ask me, this bread blows away the biscuit cans in taste anyway. Since I now make this with whole wheat, I prefer to use flatbread variations that don’t require as much of a rise.
So, because I love ‘ya, and I want you to also enjoy the amazing benefits of a jar of easy bread in your fridge, I’ve compiled this list of MORE easy bread recipes:
My favorite: Cheese Pizza
I should have named this: “the pizza that ruined us on take out forever with a to-die-for breadstick crust”. But that’s kind of too long for a blog title. I’m telling you, this stuff is SO amazing, AND on the table in less than 30 minutes. And if you’re a Trim Healthy Mama, the cheese (normally an “S” ingredient) is measured out to keep you under 5 grams of fat, and in E mode. *happy dance*
Adding pepperoni or other toppings with fats will pull you into crossover mode. and speaking of crossovers…
This is my VERY favorite pizza at a local pizza place. It’s all the best parts of a loaded baked potato, but you’re only eating a few little slices of *actual* potato. Making this a healthier and less naughty recipe if you ask me. The sauce is ranch dip, and you top with thin slices of baked potato and all of your favorite toppings. I could go for a slice or two right now!
THMs: this is a crossover or a cheat, depending on whether or not you allow yourself a few slices of white potato.
Focaccia bread is my FAVORITE way to add fresh homemade bread to the table when serving soup and salad meals. I top it with onions, fresh garlic, and a sprinkling of herbs and parm. Aside from the pizza, this is next favorite of the easy bread recipes. It’s so full of flavor and crunch, and I’m cringing at this horrible photo…I apologize. I promise to get a better photo up soon that does it justice. Yikes.
THMs: Because Easy Bread is a wheat/grain based product, it’s always going to be an E automatically. Be sure your toppings and meal extras stay under the 5 grams of fat to stay in E mode, or you can choose to have a healthy crossover.
Pretzel Dogs or pigs in a blanket are my kids favorites. They’re a must have at birthday parties, and a special rare treat. After experiencing the pretzel dog, I can never eat another tasteless hot dog bun *blech*again.
THMs: Use a lower fat hotdog to keep this in E mode, or enjoy it as a crossover.
I’m on my way to mix up a fresh batch of dough right now, because this post has made me hungry. Your turn: do you have a favorite from these easy bread recipes? What’s your favorite way to use it?
