This is great if you have a batch of pesto in the fridge like I usually do. Homemade pesto, of course. The stuff is just great and this bread does it justice. I added a bit more pesto because I'm incredibly obsessed with it and the flavor was just right for me, not overwhelming at all. Crispy and golden on the outside and rose perfectly. Best savory bread I've made. Will definitely make oh so very often. Thanks! Follow-up: I've made it a second time adding garlic powder and parmesan cheese and that just blew up the flavors even more!
I think altitude may have had something to do with the rapid rise and fall of your loaf. I live in Phoenix, and have never had that happen. Maybe you could shorten the rising time?
I will definitely add more pesto as some reviewers suggested. I also might pull the dough out of the machine, put it in a pan, and brush it with pesto for a little extra flavor.
