Olive and Garlic Sourdough (uses your bread machine!)

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by SaraFish

Subtle, savory and rich. I like to add a bit of fresh parmesan but it's yummy even without it.

Usually you are warned not to use fresh garlic in bread doughs, as it inhibits the action of the yeast. Well, the sourdough conquered all. I was very pleased with how well this rose. I added the garlic and cheese, and some fresh rosemary, at the beginning.Reduced the salt to 1 tsp. I kept my olives quite large and kneaded them in after removing the dough from the machine. Otherwise you can end up with purple dough, which just does not look as appealing. Thanks for a very nice recipe.
