  1. Step 1:

    Place the flour and salt in a large bowl. Add the yeast and Sun Dried Tomato & Herb addition and mix gently.

  2. Step 2:

    Add the olive oil and enough water to form a soft but not sticky dough. The more water that can be added the lighter the bread will be.

  3. Step 3:

    Knead the dough for 10 minutes either by machine with a dough hook or on a lightly floured work surface.

  4. Step 4:

    Shape the dough into an oval and place on a floured baking tray. Flatten the dough out using rolling pin to about 12” x 8”, cover dough with oiled cling film and allow to sit somewhere warm for an  1 hour or until it has almost doubled in size.

  5. Step 5:

    Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas mark 6.

  6. Step 6:

    After the dough has doubled in size, use a floured index finger press holes in the dough at regular intervals, pressing right down to the bottom. Place in the oven and bake for about 25-30 minutes or until bread is well risen and golden brown in colour, and hollow when tapped underneath.

  7. Step 7:

    Remove from oven, drizzle with remaining olive oil and leave to cool on the baking tray.
