Cheesy Flax Pizza Loaf

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 c. flax seed
2 T. sugar
1 T. fast rising yeast
1 c. water
2 T. butter

2 c. shredded cheese
1 c. pasta sauce (marinara)
Canadian Bacon, Pepperoni, Ham, etc.
Peppers, shredded veggies like carrots, zuchini, etc.

Heat water & butter until steaming. Pour over the dry ingredients. Mix in more flour if needed. (up to 1/2 c. each of wheat or white flour). Knead 4 minutes. Roll out dough thin into a rectangle/oval shape. Just make it about the size of your baking sheet, maybe a tad wider.

Lay dough out onto pan, add pasta sauce down the middle, top with meat, veggies, cheese, etc.

Now, if you're me, you'll stab at your cheese for awhile. 
(I buy a huge bag of Mozzarella Cheese from Sam's and keep it in my freezer. This is awesome to always have cheese on hand, but it gets stuck together sometimes and you have to stab it. Don't feel sorry for the cheese, it's serving it's purpose).
Ok, next.... 
Slice diagonally down each side about every 2 inches or so. ( Now, if you slice all the way up to the sauce and you use a lot of sauce, then it will ooze out while it bakes. That's fine, but you'll want a pan with an edge in that case. Otherwise, you'll want to stay just a little away from the sauce so it stays inside.) Then lay the pieces over top, alternating sides. Brush with Egg Wash. (Nifty *Tips about Egg washes.)

Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes. Eat it. Cause it's yummy!!
