Here's the perfect pizza for cheese lovers. Served with a green salad, it makes a satisfying meal. You can use store-bought dough if you don't have a bread machine.—Christine Omar, Harwich Port, Massachusetts
"This version of Finnish 'pulla' has always been an important part of our family celebrations," shares Doris Lystila of Townsend, Massachusetts. "This recipe is special because it can be made in a bread machine. Cooks who do not deal well with yeast dough will find that this adaptation is just what they've been looking for."
Made in the bread machine, this moist loaf has nice texture and great flavor. The cheese also gives the bread an appealing light orange tint. It smells so good while baking that I can hardly wait until it's done and cool enough to slice!

"I adapted a recipe for herb bread to come up with this flavorful version that's become one of our favorites," writes LeAne Swanson Chab of Palmdale, California. "My bread machine makes a smaller size loaf, which is perfect for my husband and me."
“This bread is great alone or with a bowl of bean soup,” recommends Cindy Reams of Philipsburg, Pennsylvania. The hearty loaf has a crispy golden crust, so it’s perfect with butter or your favorite jam.
"My sister is raising two little girls but always makes time to bake homemade bread," writes Sandy Vias, San Leandro, California. "They like this loaf best. It's studded with fruit and nuts, and terrific toasted and spread with butter.
“We love raisin bread and also enjoy the nutty flavor of pecans, so I decided to combine the two for this delectable loaf,” shares Lora Sexton of Wellington, Texas. “It smells terrific and the taste…oh-so good!”
