Garlic Herb Pepperoni Bread (Bread Machine) (food)

1 c water, warm or room temp
1/4 c light olive oil
3 c bread flour
1 T sugar
1 t salt
1/2 – 1 t garlic powder
1/2 – 1 T minced dried onion
1 t dried basil
1/4 c shredded mozzarella cheese
1/3 c grated parmesan cheese
1/4 c pepperoni slice, chopped
2 t bread machine yeast

Place ingredients in the bread machine pan in the order listed or as recommended by your machine’s manufacturer. You can adjust the garlic and onion to your preference. Don’t let the salt touch the yeast. At this point you can either select White Bread and press Start to complete in the bread machine, or use the dough setting and finish in the oven. (The oven method seems to result in a higher loaf with better texture.)

Oven Method: Select dough cycle and press start. When complete, turn the dough out onto a floured surface and punch down. Flatten out into a rectangle, patting to get out bubbles. Roll tightly into a log, turn seam side down, and tuck the ends under. Place into a loaf pan that has been lightly greased with olive oil, loosely cover with plastic wrap sprayed with nonstick spray and let rise in a warm place for 45 min or until doubled. Bake in a preheated 350 F oven for 30 min or until done (if the bottom of the loaf sounds hollow when tapped, it’s done). Immediately remove from loaf pan and cool on a wire rack at least 10 – 15 min before slicing. Makes a 1 1/2 lbs loaf.
