Tomato Bread Sticks Recipe

I love adding savory flavors to the standard dough recipe. This tomato dough was so tasty.  (I’ve done other versions using tomato juice, salsa, or even bloody mary mix.) The recipe makes the equivalent of 2 baguettes or 2 pizzas. I used one portion to make bread sticks. We devoured these with hummus, and the […]

Salsa French Bread

  The marinara bread was a big win. I had a little salsa leftover, so I went back to the well on that idea and created a salsa bread. (Seems weird to say “salsa french bread”??)  I also skipped a step with these baguettes. Normally I would allow the dough ball to rise for at […]
