Chunky Cheese in Olive Bread

1 pound loaf frozen bread dough
1/3 cup melted butter
2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1-1/2 cups pitted California ripe olives, cut in halves

Thaw frozen bread dough in refrigerator overnight. Pinch off pieces of dough about the size of an olive. Dip first into melted butter, then into grated Parmesan cheese. In an 8-inch pie plate, place alternate layers of dough balls with layers of halved ripe olives. Continue until all ingredients are used. Let rise in warm place until double in bulk. Bake in preheated 375F oven for 35-40 minutes.

Excellent served with spaghetti.
