    When I make this I put it all in my bread machine in the above order and set it to a 1 1/2 pound white bread loaf. I let it mix right up until it’s time for it to start baking and then I take it out (it should show in your breadmaker instructions how long it mixes before it starts baking). After taking it out, cover it with olive oil. Set it on a pan (I use an 8 inch round cake pan) and spinkle it with kosher salt and a little rosemary. Bake at 400 for 25 minutes (or until browned). Serve with olive oil and fresh ground pepper for dipping.
