Italian Cheese Bread

2 ½ c. flour

1 t. salt

1 t. sugar

1 T. quick-rise yeast

1 c. warm water (120 – 130 degrees)

1 T. vegetable oil

Topping:

1/3 c. Italian salad dressing

¼ t. salt

¼ t. garlic powder

¼ t. dried oregano

¼ t. dried thyme

Dash pepper

1 T. grated Parmesan

½ c. shredded mozzarella

In a bowl, combine the first four ingredients. Combine water and oil; add to flour mixture. Add additional flour if needed to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead for 1-2 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise for 20 minutes.

Punch the dough down; place on a greased 12-in. circle. Brush with salad dressing. Combine the seasonings; sprinkle over top. Sprinkle with cheeses. Bake at 450 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.
