Dough: In a large bowl combine the yeast, 2 cups of bread flour, Clabber Girl Baking Powder, salt, and sugar. Stir together and then add the oil and water. Use a spatula to stir until a shaggy dough has formed.
Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until a stiff dough has formed. Add the addition 1/2 cup flour if dough is sticky.
Transfer dough to a lightly oiled bowl and cover with a clean dish cloth. Place somewhere warm and let proof for 30 minutes or until puffy and doubled in size.
Assemble: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
When the dough as proofed, turn it out onto a well floured surface, form dough into an oval shape and roll out to about 12x15-inches. Place the rolled out dough onto a piece of parchment paper before assembling.
Spread the scrambled eggs into a strip in the middle of the dough followed by the bacon, peppers and grated cheese.
Using a pizza cutter or pastry roller- cut 1-inch thick strips onto either side of the filling.
To "braid" the bread- overlap one strip over the other- stretching each piece to seal the the beneath it.
Once the loaf is braided- brush with beaten egg and sprinkle with sea salt.
Transfer the parchment onto a cookie sheet or pizza stone, and bake for 20-25 minutes at 375 degrees F., or until crust is golden brown and crisp. Cut into slices and serve warm.
