Ingredients

Method

1

Add all the dry ingredients for the dough to a large bowl and gently mix in half of the water. Mix together with your hands until a dough begins to form and then gradually add the rest of the water, kneading all the
time.

2

Turn the dough out on to a lightly oiled worktop and knead for 5 minutes more. Place the dough back into the bowl, cover with a clean kitchen towel and leave to double in size.

3

After the dough has risen, line 2 baking sheets with parchment and divide the dough into 2 equal portions. Place a ball of dough on each baking tray and flatten with your hands, pushing it towards the corners
and edges of the tray.

4

Make dimple marks on the surface of the dough, and decorate with the herbs, olives and/or tomatoes. Sprinkle generously with sea salt and olive oil and leave the trays in a warm place to rise for another hour.

5

When ready to bake the loaves, preheat oven to 200ºC (Gas Mark 6, 400ºF). When hot, add the loaves to the oven and bake for 25 mins, or until golden.

6

Remove from the oven and leave to cool slightly. Serve warm, with extra olive oil and some balsamic vinegar to dip.
