Cheesy Bread

I just made this for our monthly Soup Sunday.  Flew off the counter, literally!  It was so delicious.  I loved the flavoring the italian dressing base gave it.  Also, no fail--for those of us who are bread challenged.

Cheesy Bread
From Your Homebased Mom Blog

2-1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 Tablespoon yeast
1 cup warm water (120*F)
1 Tablespoon oil
1/4 cup prepared Italian salad dressing
1/2 tsp sugar
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp ground oregano
1/4 tsp dried thyme
dash pepper
1-2 Tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
In a bowl, combine the first four ingredients. Combine water and oil; add to flour mixture. Add additional flour if needed to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead for 1-2 minutes or until smooth and elastic.
Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 20 minutes.
Punch the dough down; place on a greased 16″ pizza pan and pat into a 16″ circle. Combine salad dressing and seasonings, brush evenly over dough, all the way to the edges. Sprinkle with cheeses.
For a fluffier cheese bread, at this point, allow the bread to rest for 15 minutes or so. If you’re in a hurry, just skip this rise. (The bread will rise while it bakes, too.)
Preheat the oven to 450*F. Bake for 11 minutes or until golden brown. Slice. Serve warm.
