So, it was unanimous… the recipe for Italian cheese bread was wanted and so I now give it to you, the people.
Really though, who in their right mind would say ‘NO’ to an easy recipe called, ITALIAN CHEESE BREAD?😜
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1 tbsp yeast
1 tbsp oil
1 cup warm water
1 cup Italian dressing
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp thyme
salt & pepper
2 cups assorted, shredded, cheese as per what you prefer/have on hand.
I usually do mostly marble with a little bit of a Parmesan/Asiago cheese
Heat oven to 400 f.
Combine the warm water, sugar and yeast in a small bowl and let it sit for 10 minutes.
Mix together the remaining dough ingredients in a larger bowl.
Combine the two and knead together with your hands, once it forms a lump of dough, separate in to two and set aside while you measure out the spices and line two medium pans with parchment paper.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out two, medium-sized crusts.
Pour 1/2 cup of the dressing on each and then evenly divide and spread the seasonings and cheese between the two.
Bake for 15-20 minutes.
Best enjoyed warm out of the oven with bruschetta 🤤👌🏻🧀🍅
(For ‘bruschetta’ I just like to heat up a can of Italian seasoned diced tomatoes with salt and pepper added, maybe a little more garlic or whatever tastes float your… tomatoes 😜)
