1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
1 teaspoon white sugar
1 cup warm (not hot) water
2 1/2 cups bread flour
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tbsp basil leave chopped

2 tbsp parsley finely chopped
salt and pepper to taste
1 small can tomato paste
1/2 - 3/4 cup Grated Cheddar (or what have you?)

  • In a medium bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.  
  • Stir in flour, salt and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Beat until smooth. Let rest for 5 minutes.
  • Roll out the dough into the tray in rectangular shape. 
  • Place 1 tablespoon of olive oil in small pot.  Add basil, thyme, onion, minced garlic, green peppers, parsley and salt & pepper. Cook on high heat for just a couple of minutes.  Add tomato paste and stir just until mixed.
  • Spread the tomato paste evenly over the crust. 
  • Sprinkle more herbs on top if desired.
  • Roll up the dough from the long side and cut each roll evenly.
  • Arrange them on the tray and bake for 20 minutes or until golden. 
  • Serve warm with any choice of dips if you like.
