This bread was freakin' AMAZING!! Love Love LOVE this. So soft and fluffy, even the dough looked gorgeous before baking it. Will make again for everyone I know!
We loved this bread! Very easy, flavorful, and I love that you don't have to roll out separate breadsticks. I added extra garlic and butter to the crust, and sprinkled some italian seasonings on as well. Next time I make it, I'll make an alfredo dipping sauce to go with it!
I came here because earlier today I was in the supermarket. They had a display of flat breads, oval in shape about 12 inches by 6 inches (that's all you get) a variety of flavors like roasted tomato, garlic, etc....,,so here's the good part, the price for each of these was $ 4.89. Kid you not. Would serve maybe four. I said to myself,,,I'm headed to zaar, run don't walk ! I will make this lovely recipe just to be able to thumb my nose at the "artisan bread" people out there...........
