Recipe by Aroostook
An easy recipe that uses any combination of herbs that you like best. Herbs are rolled up in the dough jellyroll style giving your bread a great pinwheel effect. (You can also "cheat" and use a pre-made pizza dough and use this method if you like...not quite as good but who will know???) =)
