Italian Cheese Bread

For the dough:
2-½ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 T quick-rise yeast
1 cup warm water (120*-130*)
1 T vegetable oil

For the topping:
¼ cup prepared Italian salad dressing
1/8 teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon ground oregano
¼ teaspoon dried thyme
dash peper
1 T grated Parmesan cheese (or more)**
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

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 mintues or until smooth and elastic.

Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 20 minutes.

Punch the dough down; place on a greased 12“ pizza pan and pat into a 12” circle. Brush with salad dressing.

Combine the seasonings; sprinkle over top. Sprinkle with cheeses. Bake at 450* for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.

Ranch dressing can be substituted for Italian dressing if you want a little different taste or need to make a substitute.

Makes one pan, approximately 12 slices
