Gluten Free Thursday: Tomato Puree Bread Which Also Has Sun-dried Tomatoes!

I love tomatoes. Every single day I must eat tomatoes. Every morning I eat tomatoes. I ate sauce made with tomatoes. I like it in my salad, I love it with cheese, I eat it with yogurt. And it turns out, that I also love bread that is made with it! When I first saw a tomato bread recipe in a gluten free baking book I have, I said to myself that I HAD TO make it. But how? Because I like making my own changes to recipes I find. So it took me a while to find my own twists.

Inspired by that recipe, I decided to make my own version with my own twists.
