As you might guess, my house quite often smells like baking bread. I won’t say that I’m immune to the delicious fumes, but I’m pretty used to them. Once in a while, though, some bread will have a little extra something that has me sniffing the air in anticipation. This is one of those.
It helps that there was tomato, basil and garlic involved.
Besides the flavors in the swirl, I used some garlic oil in the dough. If you don’t have any, you can use regular olive oil. Or, if you want even more garlic flavor, use all garlic oil instead of the tablespoon of regular olive oil in this recipe.
