  • “I made this bread a few hours agoand it is gone already,my husband ate almost the whole loaf by himself,I thought it was delicious too,being made in a bread machine it was very easy to make,the hard part was smelling it and waiting to eat it,it smelled wonderful.I made it exactly like the recipe said,butI think next time I will put a little garlic in it.I would give it a 5 star rating”

  • “I substituted nutritional yeast for the milk powder to veganize this, and black instead of green olives, and it turned out absolutely fantastic.”

  • “I have a large bread machine that does 2lb loaves. Both times I have made it it has overflowed my bread machine and made a huge mess. I have followed the instructions to a T and still poor results. I am disappointed as I was looking forward to trying the bread UPDATE: I originally gave this recipe a 1 star rating for the above mentioned reasons. I then started to make the dough in the bread machine and bake in the oven. This is my hubbies favorite bread. He spreads cream cheese on it and devours it.”

  • “The flavor of this bread is excellent. We called it “pizza bread”, as I used black olives. My daughter thought adding chopped pepperoni would be good too. The next night, with the leftover bread, I made grilled cheese sandwiches using mozzarella cheese.These were a big hit!I think it would be good to add some fresh spinach, pizza sauce and mushrooms to the grilled cheese as well.”

  • “Wow, I did not expect this to have such a wonderful texture!I expected it to taste great, but I never thought it would be so good to use for sandwiches.It is PERFECT for sandwiches.Everyone in my family really liked this, so I’m sure I’ll be making it often.”

  • “We really enjoyed this bread along with our spaghetti dinner.It was easy to prepare and the directions were easy to follow.Great texture and taste.What more could you ask for?Love the addition of the olives. I used the green in mine, as I think they have more flavor than the black.A combo of the 2 might be good.I might try it sometime.My DH and DDs really enjoyed theirs.I had as toast with some cream cheese on it, and it was excellent!”

  • “I made this bread to go with Recipe #289283 that I was making.It was a great addition to our meal.Next time I might try adding black olives instead of the green, and see how it turns out.Love my olives!”

  • “I made with both green and black olives.Delicious bread that everyone really liked!I will be making this again in the near future.”

  • “This not only tastes good but looks a treat, wonderful flavours..didn’t change a thing, I like the idea of trying black olives and will do this in the future as well, great recipe thanks for sharing.”

  • “a very robust tasteing bread i took the advice of the 1 person who said to add garlic i added 2 cloves minced and added it when i added the olives.Came out beautiful it smelled great and had a beautifulcolor crust.”
