Love this Bread! Used dough cycle on bread machine. When cycle was complete, I divided dough into 6 (bun size). Placed on lightly sprayed parchment paper in warm oven to let dough rise again. Baked at 350 till lightly browned. Thanks for the great recipe.
M granddaughter and I make bread every week. We always used the italian bread recipe that came with my ABM, but this time we decided to try this one. My breadmaker died right after we put all the ingredients in, so we used the kitchenaid. This bread was exactly how I remember the Italian bread that my mom used to buy from the Italian baker who sold it door to door when I was a child. Crispy crust and soft inside. I think I might have to throw that booklet in the trash.
I formed this dough into four large submarine buns. They were EXCELLENT! Wonderful, soft texture and great taste.
This bread was a great success! Made in my ABM and was very happy with the size, taste & texture...Will definitely make again! Thx for the recipe!
Excellent bread recipe with crisp crust and fluffy inside. Went down a treat with dukkah.
Delicious! Very fragrant, great texture, great taste, and easy as pie!
I have no need to buy bakery Italian bread anymore!...Delicious!! I have made this 3 times now, first time in the machine, other 2 times I take out dough and shape into two loaves and cook in oven, and each time got raving reviews, thanks for the great recipe!!:)
This loaf has great flavor, but it turned out too heavy and dense for my taste.
This bread reminds us of a famous bakery in Omaha where the locals go on Sunday morning and get fresh bread and rolls. If you like toast in the morning then you have to try this. If I were to make it for company, I would use the dough cycle and hand form it as the photos look gorgeous, but doing it all in the ABM works too! This is going in my "Best of Zaar so Far" cookbook!

Fantastic recipe. I did have to add a little extra water to the dough. I always do when making bread, I think it's because our elevation is 7200 ft. Very easy recipe and I followed another reviewer and sprayed the loaf before the 2nd rise with olive oil cooking spray and sprinkled the loaf with garlic powder and parmesan cheese. Great recipe will be making often thanks so much for posting Sally!
