Ingredients
  • 2cupsAll Purpose Flour
  • 3/4cupWarm Water
  • 3tbspolive oil
  • 1.5tspActive Instant Dry Yeast
  • 1tspSugar
  • 3/4tspSalt
  • Fresh Rosemary as needed
  • Pitted Black Olives as needed
Instructions
  1. n a small bowl add active instant dry yeast, sugar and 1/4 cup of warm water. Let it sit idle for 5-10mins. The yeast becomes frothy.
  2. In a large mixer bowl add all purpose flour and salt.
  3. If you are using a stand mixer, run it on low speed and slowly add the yeast water. Else, mix it with hands gently.
  4. Keep pouring the other 1/2 cup of water and knead until it comes together. Add 1 tbsp of olive oil.
  5. Run the stand mixer on low speed until the dough becomes sticky.
  6. Continue kneading it and you can see that it sticks to the attachment but turns really smooth.
  7. Add 1 tbsp of olive oil, tuck the dough edges under and cover the bowl with cling film.
  8. Leave it outside at room temperature for 2-3 hours. It will double up and raise in size.
  9. Preheat the oven at 180°C for 15 mins. Gently deflate the dough and place it on a sheet pan.
  10. Press it into an even flat bread of half a centimeter thickness.
  11. Using your fingers, make indentations all over the dough.
  12. Fill the indentations with olive oil.
  13. Top off the bread with fresh rosemary and olives.
  14. Bake it covered with aluminum foil for 15 mins. Bake for another 20-25 mins without the foil. Apply a coating of olive oil.
  15. Bake for another 5 mins on toast mode until it is golden brown. Remove from oven and cool down for ten minutes.
  16. Serve warm with soup!
