  1. To make the dough: Mix the entire dough components in a bowl (or the bucket of your bread machine), and blend and knead — by hand, utilizing a mixer, or in your bread machine set on the dough cycle — to make a easy, very mushy dough. The dough ought to stick a bit to the underside of the bowl if you happen to’re utilizing a stand mixer.
  2. Plâce the dough in â lightly greâsed bowl, cover, ând let it rise until it’s doubled in size, âbout 45 to 60 minutes.
  3. Meânwhile, thoroughly drâin the tomâtoes, pâtting them dry. Use kitchen sheârs to cut them into smâller bits.
  4. Gently deflâte the dough. Flâtten ând pât it into â 22×8½ -inch rectângle. Evenly spreâd the cheese, tomâtoes, gârlic, ând bâsil over dough.
  5. Stârting with one long edge, roll the dough into â log the long wây. Pinch the edges to seâl.
  6. Plâce the log seâm-side down on â lightly greâsed or pârchment-lined bâking sheet.
  7. Using kitchen sheârs, stârt ½ inch from one end ând cut the log lengthwise down the center âbout 1-inch deep, to within ½ inch of the other end.
  8. Keeping the cut side up, form ân “S” shâpe. Tuck both ends under the center of the “S” to form â “figure 8;” pinch the ends together to seâl.
  9. Cover ând let rise in â wârm plâce until double, 45 to 60 minutes.
  10. While the loâf is rising, preheât the oven to 350°F.
  11. Uncover the breâd, ând bâke it for 35 to 40 minutes, tenting it with foil âfter 20 to 25 minutes to prevent over-browning.
  12. Remove the breâd from the oven, ând trânsfer it to â râck to cool. Enjoy wârm or ât room temperâture. Store, well-wrâpped, ât room temperâture for â couple of dâys; freeze for longer storâge.
