Yeast 1 level tsp

Warm water, 150ml

Olive oil, 1 tbsp (and some for greasing)

Olives, 6-10 (depends how much you want)

Put the flour, salt, sugar and yeast together in a mixing bowl. Mix well. Tear olives with your fingers (you can chop them up, if you'd prefer to) and add to the dough and mix well. Using your finger, make a dip in the dough and pour in the water and oil.Mix with a fork until its sticky. Lightly sieve the worktop with flour, and knead the dough on the table. Put back into the bowl, cover with a towel and leave in a warm place for 45-60 mins. Preheat oven at 210ºC Fan/ 230ºC/Gas 8. Cook for about 40 mins, until ready.
