This bread made such a good impression on my family. Like most other reviews I found the dough to be incredibly sticky once it came out of the bread maker. I kneaded it with a little more flour to make it a bit easier to handle. I used my own Italian herbs, minced garlic and Parmesan cheese for the topping, I added this to the melted butter, which meant I only had to dip the dough once. Next time I think I am going to try using olive oil rather than butter, which I think is more traditional with the toppings I used. The bread was very easy to make, looked great and tasted amazing! - 12 Jan 2013


. Really easy using bread machine. I replaced the milk with yoghurt & 1 tablespoon of dried milk powder to thicken the dough as, like others , I found it to be too wet & sticky. This seemed to make it easier to work with. One of my favourites. - 29 Mar 2013
