I utilized the bread machine to mix the dough on this recipe. I didn't see an amount for the water listed so started with a 1/2 cup to foam the yeast. I did have to adjust the dough after it was mixed as it was still very loose. I added more flour a spoonful at a time until I had a consistency I was happy with. I also added the cheeses & oregano directly to the dough as I planned to use the bread to make Recipe #289116. The bread had a nice texture & was well flavored. Made for ZWT4.
