Want to make a delicious bread to go with dinner but don’t have all day to work on it? This Olive Bread With Goat Cheese and Sun Dried Tomatoes is as easy as it is delicious!
Are you ready for the holidays? It’s time to start thinking about food, especially those turkey and ham recipes! Then you have to plan a fabulous tablescape to go along with it. It’s a lot of work but your family is worth it, right?
If you’re hosting Thanksgiving dinner, you’re probably planning to make a whole slew of recipes. If you’re anything like me, you make way too much (but half the fun of Thanksgiving is all the leftovers, right?). That’s why I love this bread recipe so much. When I’m spending all day in the kitchen, it helps if some of the recipes are easy and it doesn’t get much easier than this recipe!
Instead of the usual bakery bread, I’m making a Mediterranean Olive Bread using two of my favorite ingredients, Mezzetta Kalamata Olives and sun dried tomatoes. I love that this is so much easier than traditional bread recipes. This one is made with pre-made pizza dough from the bakery section of my grocery store. After picking up Mezzetta olives, sun-dried tomatoes and goat cheese, I cut some fresh rosemary from my herb garden and was ready to get cookin’.

Olive Bread With Goat Cheese And Sun Dried Tomatoes
Before getting started, I put the dough on the counter so that it could warm to room temperature while I prepped the other ingredients. It didn’t take long and once the rosemary, olives and tomatoes were chopped, I was ready for the dough.
Spray light coat of olive oil on the cookie sheet. Unroll the dough and sprinkle with the olives, sun-dried tomatoes, rosemary and goat cheese.
Roll it tightly, brush the top with olive oil and place in the oven for 15 minutes (if you don’t want to make a loaf, you can leave it flat and serve flatbread). I added a small bowl with olive oil, dried rosemary, salt and pepper…perfect for dipping! (Scroll down for full recipe and use this Mezzetta link to get a coupon)
I don’t know what I liked most about this recipe…the fact that it was so easy or that it was so delicious! Even my husband loved it (and he’s never afraid to tell me when he doesn’t like something).
