    1       pk           Yeast
    2       ts           Sugar
      1/3   c             -- Water, warm
    4       c            Flour
    3       tb           Butter -- in pieces
    1       t            Salt
    1       c             -- Water, ice, without
    1       lb           Ricotta
      1/2   c            Parmesan
      1/2   lb           Mozzarella, sliced
      1/2   lb           Pepperoni
    2       tb           Butter -- melted
                         Sesame seeds
   Preheat oven to 200 degrees for 15 minutes and turn
   off.  Combine yeast, sugar and warm water in a small
   mixing bowl.  Set aside for 5 minutes until foamy.  In
   the workbowl of a food processor, add flour, butter
   pieces and salt. Process for 20 seconds.  Add ice
   water to yeast.  With the processor running, add
   yeast-water mixture gradually, until all of the
   moisture is absorbed and the dough leaves the side of
   the bowl. Process for an additional 60 seconds.
   Transfer dough from the workbowl to a large greased
   mixing bowl. Cover with a kitchen towel and place in
   warm off oven. Allow to rise until doubled,
   approximately 1 1/2 hours.
   Combine the ricotta and Parmesan. Punch down the risen
   dough and transfer to a floured rolling surface. With
   quick, hard strokes, roll dough into a large
   rectangle, approximately 1/2 inch thick.  Layer one-
   half of the mozzarella cheese evenly down the center
   leaving approximately three inches of exposed dough on
   either side.  Top with the ricotta mixture and
   pepperoni, and the remaining mozzarella. Overlap the
   exposed dough over the cheese mixture and pinch well
   on all sides to seal.
   Transfer to a large cookie sheet, seam side up.  Cover
   with a kitchen towel and return to the warmed oven.
   Allow to rise until doubled, approximately 45 minutes.
   Brush loaf with melted butter and sprinkle with sesame
   seeds.  Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes or
   until loaf is well browned and hollow sounding when
