MY REVIEW

WOW this is an awesome recipe. It's probably the best bread for dipping in olive oil and Italian herbs that I've ever had. And it was super easy to make. I'd give it more than five stars if I could. It does make a small loaf, as noted.

This loaf was very easy to make and very delicious. My family just loved it. One loaf is not enough for 4 people, need to make 2 loaves.
