A delicious bread that you can change easily by changing the herbs you put in and on it! I'm posting with the original basil, but try it with rosemary too!

Sounds good but what if you don't use a bread machine? What changes in yeast & kneading are necessary?

This is the second time I have made this recipe and BOTH times it has came out wonderful. This time, I tried it adding roasted garlic, rosemary, basil on top along with the grated parmesan and olive oil. Very delicious. Thanks for posting. Saderbee

Wonderful bread I made in my KA. Made with basil but would love to try again with other herbs. Love the texture the cornemal gives it on the bottom. I may try it with pizza toppings. Easy and delicious. Thanks Charmie!
