500g strong bread flour

7g dried fast action yeast.

Handful of cut olives

small bunch of rosemary


What to do!

1. In a large mixing bowl add the flour, the yeast & salt.

2. Make a well in the middle of the flour and add 2 tbsp oil and about 350 warm water, adding slowly until you have a slightly sticky dough. Sprinkle your work surface with flour and tip the dough out. Kneed for 5-10 mins until your dough is soft and less sticky. Put the dough into a clean bowl, cover with a tea towel and leave to prove for 1 hr until doubled in size.

4. Heat the oven to 220C. Dimple the dough using your fingers. Drizzle oil, salt, rosemary and cut olives over the bread.

5. Bake for 20 mins until golden brown.

6. Once out, and while the bread is still hot, drizzle over 1-2 tbsp olive oil
