This beautiful Italian Pane Bianco (Italian for “white bread”) is a soft bread filled with sundried tomatoes, cheese, fresh basil, and garlic which is shaped into a figure-8. And even though it looks a little complicated, it’s really easy as pie! Great to serve alongside your favorite Italian dinner or as a fun party appetizer with an olive oil dip.

This easy bread recipe came from a bread baking group I used to be part of along with several other food bloggers. We’d set a theme for each month and bake something related.

Finished pane bianco on a cooling rack.

I posted a photo of the finished loaf of Pane Bianco on Instagram right after it came out of the oven and it got more attention than any photo I’ve ever posted. Not only is it visually stunning, it’s really delicious and it makes your house smell wonderful while it’s baking!
