Simply wonderful! I do agree with other reviewers to proof the yeast. Salt deters the growth of the yeast, whereas sugar promotes it. This is why proofing is important when making yeast breads. So, I have made this several times with the original ingredients, and subsequent variations. Our favorite substitutes fresh minced garlic for the garlic powder, the addition of 1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes for zip along with a ½ teaspoon of rosemary. Lastly we brush the top with lemon and oregano infused olive oil – super yummy! Of course you can go pretty wild with this recipe, such as slices of red onion, sun dried tomatoes, fresh sprigs of your favorite herbs, etc. Great recipe as is with only the addition of proofing the yeast, as well as a jumping off point for creating other tasty variations! Thanks for sharing, it is a definite keeper!
