I’m not an experienced baker, but this recipe is easy to do. It’s just about mixing the ingredients, leaving the dough to rise, and baking – then you have fresh, hot homemade bread!
- 1 ⅓ cup warm water
- 2 teaspoons honey
- 0.25 oz active dry yeast
- 3 ½ cups all purpose flour
- ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil + more for drizzling
- 2 teaspoons chunky sea salt
- 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
- Put yeast in warm water and honey.
- Gradually add in the flour, olive oil and salt. Then knead for 5 minutes by hand.
- First dough rise: Shape the dough into a ball and place it in a greased mixing bowl, and cover with a damp towel. Let the dough rest in a warm location for 45-60 minutes, or until it has doubled in size.
- Second dough rise: Shape the dough into a large circle or rectangle until that the dough is about 1/2-inch thick*. Cover and let the dough continue to rise for another 20 minutes.
- Heat oven to 400°F.
- Transfer the dough to a large parchment-covered baking sheet. Make deep dents with your fingers all over the surface of the dough. Then drizzle a little olive oil evenly over the top. Sprinkle with fresh rosemary and sea salt.
- Bake for 20 minutes, or until the dough is slightly golden and cooked through.
- Remove from the oven. Drizzle more olive oil as desired.
Another variation: instead of rosemary, use caramelized onions.
- 1 loaf
