I made this for Spring Pick-A-Chef and it is wonderful. I used a packet of yeast, which is 2.25 teaspoons and the dough rose just fine. I only needed 2.5 cups of flour to make this bread and in my convection oven at 375 F it took exactly 20 minutes to cook. In the recipe photo I used Italian sausage, sundried tomatoes, mozzarella cheese and sliced olives. We ate it warm and it disappeared in a flash!
