Ingredients

  • 3 cups unbleached bread flour, plus more as needed
  • 2 teaspoons instant Yeast
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, plus extra for sprinkling
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup lukewarm water, plus more as needed
  • 2 tablespoons cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
  • 10-15 kalamata olives, pitted and sliced in half.

Instructions

  • Combine the flour, yeast, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, and 2 tablespoons of olive oil into a food processor. Turn the machine on and process for about 15 seconds. With the food processor running, add the water through the tube.
  • Process for about 30 seconds until the mixture forms a ball that is slightly sticky. You may need to add more water or flour depending on the consistency of your dough. Do so, just a little at a time, until the dough is slightly sticky.
  • Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead for a minute to form a smooth, round ball.
  • Grease a bowl with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Place the dough ball in the bowl, cover, and let rise until the dough has doubled in size, about 1-2 hours.
  • When the dough is ready, divide it evenly into 2 pieces. Form each piece into a ball and place on a lightly floured surface. Sprinkle with flour, cover lightly with plastic wrap and let them rest for 20 minutes.
  • When the dough is ready, on a lightly floured surface, press the dough balls into two 1-inch thick rounds.
  • Place each round on a cornmeal dusted cookie sheet, cover lightly with plastic wrap, and let rest for another 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  • Uncover the dough and dimple with your fingers. Brush each round with remaining olive oil and top with a sprinkle of salt.
  • Use your fingers to press in the rosemary and olives.
    Place dough rounds in oven and reduce temperature to 375 degrees.
  • Bake for about 30 minutes or until the bread is golden brown.
  • Allow to cool before serving. If you want to serve warm bread, let it cool first, then heat it up.
  • This is best eaten the day it is baked, but if you would like to save it, wrap it in plastic wrap, then place it in a ziplock bag.
