  • Prep Time 30 min
  • Total Time 3 hr 35 min
  • Servings 16

Ingredients

3
to 3 1/2 cups bread flour
2
tablespoons sugar
1 1/2
teaspoons salt
1
package regular active or fast-acting dry yeast
1
cup very warm water (120°F to 130°F)
1/3
cup basil pesto
1/3
cup coarsely chopped sun-dried tomatoes (packed in oil), drained
1
egg, beaten
Shredded Parmesan cheese, if desired

Directions

  • 1 In large bowl, mix 1 cup of the flour, the sugar, salt and yeast. Stir in water until blended. Stir in pesto and tomatoes. Stir in enough remaining flour to make dough easy to handle.
  • 2 Place dough on lightly floured surface; gently roll in flour to coat. Knead about 8 minutes or until smooth and springy. Grease large bowl with shortening or cooking spray. Place dough in bowl, turning dough to grease all sides. Cover; let rise in warm place about 1 hour or until dough has doubled in size. (If using fast-acting yeast, do not let rise 1 hour; cover and let rest on floured surface 10 minutes.)
  • 3 Grease large cookie sheet with shortening or cooking spray. On lightly floured surface, roll dough into 16x12-inch rectangle. Cut dough crosswise in half. Beginning at 12-inch side, roll up each half of dough tightly. Pinch edge of dough into roll to seal. Taper ends slightly.
  • 4 Place loaves 3 inches apart on cookie sheet. Make 3 or 4 diagonal slashes, 1/4 inch deep, across tops of loaves with sharp knife. Cover; let rise in warm place 30 to 40 minutes or until double.
  • 5 Heat oven to 375°F. Brush egg over tops of loaves. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack; cool.
