Redirection for Google's Change of Address Tool

I’m trying to submit a Change of Address to Google and its validation of checking that redirects to is failing because the 301 takes to (which then 301 redirects to It looks like they don’t like dealing with multiple redirections like this and that there’s no way to disable HTTPS within Netlify. I tried writing a rewrite rule to redirect to but it doesn’t seem to be working. This is what I have in our netlify.toml.

from = "*"
to = ""
force = true

And if anyone runs into this issue with Google as well, following did the trick
