Chewy Pizza Bread

So I made this while D was walking the dogs. It was so quick, the oven hadn't even heated all the way up.

While making it, I noticed it didn't have any flavorings besides the beer. So I added some garlic powder, oregano and Italian Seasoning. I couldn't find crushed red pepper. I didn't measure any of this. I probably should have because I'm pretty sure everything I used was less than 1/4tsp each

So the result was decent but it was a little raw tasting. Of course this didn't stop me from eating half the pan (no, not kidding!) I think there needs to be more tweaks. Like adding some garlic to the flour mixture and crushed red pepper. Or putting the basil in the dough.

I will continue to make/tweak these because we almost always have the ingredients on hand, which is certainly cheaper than Pillsbury Breadsticks.
