Green olives compliment this cheesy, pizza-like bread from Ivy Laffoon of Ceres, California. With very few ingredients, it’s packed with flavor. Serve it as an appetizer or alongside pasta, soup or salad for a mouthwatering meal.—Ivy J Laffoon, Ceres, California

"We made this for Sunday football appetizers and dipped it in marinara sauce! I made it as-is and everyone enjoyed it."

"WOW!!! This was amazing!! If you like olives, you'll love this! Simply thaw the bread - there's no need to let it rise. The only change I made was to use sharp cheddar cause that's what I had on hand. I will be making this often! Thanks so much!!"
