Semolina & Olive Oil Bread with Sesame Seeds

The original recipe required sesame seeds exclusively, much more than I had on hand in fact. So I made my own adjustments in that department, instead using a combo of semolina, bread flour, and unbleached all-purpose flour. I wasn't altogether sure this would work well since semolina is very high gluten flour and I didn't have a lot of it.
The olive oil adds a subtle aroma that's uniquely appealing, and it also obviously lends something special to the bread's beautifully textured crumb. As for the sesame seeds, I made the decision to add them on my own, but as you can see most or all of them fell off when I turned the loaves over to remove them from the pans.
That was entirely my own fault: I should have wet the tops of the unbaked loaves with water, or brushed them with an egg wash, and then gently patted down the seeds to help them adhere. The bread was just as good, though, despite those wayward sesames.
