“My family loves this bread & it is so easy to make. I serve it with Italian food. It is adapted from a recipe in Pizza, Focaccia, Flat, & Filled Breads From your Bread Machine. You may substitute herbs in the topping, or use fresh. The original recipe calls for a roasted vegetable topping, but I am going to post that as a separate recipe because the bread alone is great. (Cooking time includes rising times & will vary with your bread machine cycle).”
