This recipe is awesome! My whole family enjoyed it. I understood the yeast as needing to be two packets which if measuring is 1tbsp & 1/2tsp of yeast. My dough rose very quickly and was ready in one hour. We used a ton of extra cheese, pepperoni, italian sausage and black olives and it cooked perfectly fine. Due to my oven, I think, I turned my baking sheet at about halfway so one loaf would not be darker than the other. I'm just a beginner at bread making and I found this recipe easy to make :-) Thanks!
Very yummy. Used extra mozzarella. I was confused about the yeast amount though. An individual packet of yeast weighs 1/4 oz, which means you'd need 9 packets to get 2 1/4 oz. of yeast! That seemed a bit excessive. :-) Maybe 2 1/4 tsp. was meant? At any rate, I used about three teaspoons and that worked just fine. The bread dough was very easy to make.
This is great. I used 3 teaspoons yeast based on the 2.25 ounce measure. I wish I had mixed it in my KitchenAid mixer; instead, I mixed it by hand and that was okay â€” it seemed to mix well and worked okay. If you choose to mix this by hand, this is for the experienced cook! Thanks, Potatoes Browning! Made for <b>PAC Fall '08.</b>

Hi! I reside in the Great Lakes area of the U.S. I have a tiny plot of land at the fringe of the city that my wife and I like to grow various herbs, fruit and veggies as well as flowers of many kinds. We have removed all the grass in the back yard and are about halfway through the front. We grow without pesticides and get lots of bees, birds, hummingbirds and various little critters in the yard. I have four cats and three goldfish. I have over the past few years discovered the joys of canning. I like old fashioned methods sometimes- air drying clothes, saving bacon fat, canning. <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"><img src="http://i146.photobucket.com/albums/r271/copperhorse58/Birthday%20and%20Celebration%20Images/spicesswap_amtag2.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
