Delicious! Took about 3 hours from start to finish (dough cycle on my machine takes 1 1/2 hours). I used less than a whole small (7 oz) jar of Safeway Select julienne cut sun dried tomatoes with Italian herbs in oil, chopped them up a bit more but this wasn't necessary, the kneading of the bread machine pulverized them so only teeny bits were visible in the finished bread. Next time I'll try 1/4 cup at the beginning, they added a wonderful flavor & color to the dough, & add the other 1/4 cup chopped a bit when it beeps to add fruit/nuts. Drained tomatoes a bit but didn't rinse, so due to the extra oil left on the tomatoes I cut the butter (instead of margarine) down to about 2 3/4 Tbsp. Used "Better for Bread" flour & bread machine yeast, made a big oval on a 10x15 cookie sheet, it rose beautifully when baked, taste & texture were perfect! Instead of olive oil used oil from the tomatoes, about 1 Tbsp was enough for the knead step & brushing on top, used the other Tbsp for dipping....yum! I cut the garlic salt in half but it was still a bit too salty on top so next time I'll use garlic powder, the cheese has enough salt for the top. I try to rate recipes considering the actual recipe without any modifications, & had I used the full amount of garlic salt it would have been terrible, so I took 1 star off for that. Some reviewers said the dough was too floury or too sweet, but I thought the dough was awesome & look forward to making this again with other cheeses & toppings.
