I am always looking for ways to infuse some Italian ness into my Jewish cooking, and a tomato basil challah is an obvious choice and a delicious pairing. The tomato paste adds both a beautiful red hue and a touch of sweetness to the dough. You can substitute with puréed sun dried tomatoes or sun dried tomato paste if you prefer.
