Olive and Tomato Bread Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2012
I halved this recipe to fit in my bread machine for a dough cycle to make buns. It required nearly another cup of flour, and I didn't have quite enough olives. However, the olive flavor shined through. I would give 4.5 stars for the recipe adjustment needs, otherwise great!

Great flavor and texture. Instead of three loafs I made 4 focaccia flat loafs. I also subbed 1/2 the water for Hot and spicy V8 juice to amp up the tomato flavor.

Use olive juice to substitute for water, omit salt

Made some changes to the orginal recipe. I wanted to try it in my bread machine, so I made a third of the recipe. I did have to add an extra cup of flour, though, so be careful if you modify the amount of dough. I didn't have sun dried tomatoes or Kalamata olives, so I used sun dried tomato pesto and Spanish olives. Came out well, nice and soft in my bread machine. It seemed a bit salty, but I think that is due to using pesto, not the actual recipe.

This was good. I didn't have enough olives so I substituted an equal amount of sweet garlic (I think that's what you call it--cloves of garlic that have been soaked in olive oil for a long time and no longer have the strong taste of raw garlic). Anyway, that was fine. I think my bread could have been a little lighter, but that was probably due to my mistakes, and not the recipe. However, I couldn't manage to knead my bread without incorporating probably another cup and a half of flour. I'm definitely not complaining since it was a loaf I could make without running to the store for new ingredients!

Just reading this recipe made me want to try it right away. But I'm going to add minced garlic and Basil for an added lift.
