How to Make It

Step 1

Brush an 8 1/2-by-4 1/2-inch loaf pan with 1 Tbsp. melted butter.

Step 2

Flatten out dough on a lightly floured surface, sprinkle with one third of currants and caraway seeds, and knead in. Repeat with remaining currants and caraway seeds until all are kneaded into dough. Shape into a loaf, transfer to loaf pan, cover with a clean kitchen towel and allow to rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 1/2 hours.

Step 3

Position rack in middle of oven and preheat to 375°F. Brush dough with remaining melted butter, sprinkle with salt and bake until golden brown, 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool in pan on a wire rack. Slice and serve.

I agree with Christopher51! Soda Bread is so easy I don't know why you'd mess it up with Frozen (yeast) pizza dough. http://allrecipes.com/recipe/grandma-mcandrews-irish-soda-bread/detail.aspx?event8=1&prop24=SR_Title&e11=grandma%20mcandrews%20soda%20bread&e8=Quick%20Search&event10=1&e7=%2ffeatures%2fholidays%2fst-patricks-day.aspx

Irish Soda Bread... with PIZZA dough? Shame on you! I wouldn't even make this recipe. It's insulting.
