How to Make Italian Bread Recipe from ‘The Hunger Games’

By Emily Paltrow, Emily Scholl, and Emma Coker-McGregorFor the past year, “The Hunger Girls” writer and director Jennifer Kent has been creating a delicious Italian bread recipe for her HBO show, “HBO’s Girls.”

It’s a deliciously savory bread recipe that’s made from scratch using fresh ingredients from Italy, like freshly made mozzarella, basil, oregano, and oreganos.

The result is a truly delicious, decadent treat. 

But now, Kent has taken the same Italian bread technique and expanded it to her TV show, with the results being a surprisingly delicious loaf of bread that’s topped with a few of her favorite flavors.

“The Girls” fans have been begging for a loaf of this quality for years, and now we finally have it.

Here are six tips for making it:  1.

Use fresh mozzas, fresh basil, fresh oreganas, and fresh oregans, as well as fresh oreghis. 

These ingredients will help the bread rise a bit higher than normal, and make the dough more firm. 


Don’t skip the last step. 

It’s not necessary to add the oreganol, oregans are all pretty similar. 


Bake the loaf at 350°F for about 20 minutes. 


Make the bread the day before you plan to eat it. 5.

If you use fresh mozza or basil, it should be a bit firmer than usual. 6.


The first step is to make a batch of bread dough.

You’ll need about 10 cups of flour and 1 cup of water.

You can also make this dough in the morning and refrigerate it for a few hours.

If your oven is a little smaller, it may be easier to just freeze the dough.

After you’ve made the dough, place it in the fridge to firm up for at least 20 minutes before you add it to the oven. 


Then, make the bread dough by adding the flour and water to a bowl and mixing until you’ve created a dough ball.

You will have to use a hand mixer to keep the dough soft. 


Now, mix the mozzola, oregono, basil and oregans until the dough has become a sticky mass. 


If the dough is too sticky to handle, let it rest for 30 minutes before adding it to a large bowl. 


Now, add the dry ingredients and mix for about 5 minutes until all the ingredients are incorporated. 


After the dough gets a bit soft, it will be a little more sticky to work with, so add some more flour and mix until the flour is fully incorporated.

Once the dough balls are all coated with flour, it’s ready to roll. 


Then, roll the dough to about 1-inch thickness, and place it on a floured surface. 


When the dough rolls out, you can either shape it into a rectangle or roll it out in circles. 


If you prefer, you may also shape the dough into a sandwich or bread bun, and use it as a filling for an Italian salad. 


For a more appetizing and nutritious snack, try some of these sweet potato pie crusts. 


Lastly, try a quick salad, like this salad made with fresh mozarella and basil. 


The next step is cutting out the bread.

Cut the dough on a piece of parchment paper, and then use a serrated knife to cut it into 6 strips. 


Place each strip of dough into the bread pan and cover with a clean kitchen towel. 


Once the bread has been cut into 6 pieces, use a spatula to mix the bread into the loaf. 


As the bread is mixed into the mozas, basil or oreganes, it can be baked for another 20 minutes or so. 21. 

Finally, turn the bread out onto a plate and serve. 

You can either slice the bread or wrap it in foil to make it even more delicious.
