Easy Rosmary Herb Bread (vegan, gluten free, citrus free, easy)

Im sorry I have been MIA, I have been cooking, but I started a new job, so things have been hectic. One of my new favorite recipes is this rosmary herb bread. It is strongly flavored, and stands well on its own or with a dip or with a veggie burger or veggie sandwich.

1 cup water
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons white sugar
1 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 teaspoons dried rosemary
2 1/2 cups gluten free flour
1 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
1 tbsp baking powder

Let yeast proof for 10 minutes.
Mix flour., salt, rosmary, italian seasoning, and pepper and baking powder in the mixer.
Add yeast mixture and oil, and let kneadfor 10 minutes.
Set aside in a warm place and let rise until doubledin size, about an hour.
Punch dough down, shape and let rise. Bake at 375 for 30 minutes
