While visiting my local Quiznos decided to try to make my own. Used a couple of my favorite Zaar recipes as the starting point. Made two loaves yesterday . . . friends stopped in and we devoured one loaf with cheese. It was deemed ready for the public! Next time may try adding a couple tablespoons of sun dried tomatoes.

The recipe was reduced by half and produced a beautiful, well rounded loaf of bread. It was baked on a baking stone. The bread was nice and chewy. Something I will be making again. Made for *1-2-3 Hit Wonders*
