Ingredients

  • 500g Strong white bread flour (you can use 1⁄2 wholemeal)
  • 1 tbsp dried active yeast or 1 sachet
  • 350ml warm water
  • 1 tsp honey or sugar
  • 1⁄2 tsp fine salt
  • 50ml Extra virgin olive oil
  • Flour to dust your surfaces
  • For the oil:
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 crushed garlic clove
  • 1 tbsp chopped or dried rosemary, parsley or thyme (or our Green Herb Blend)
  • Salt and pepper

What to do

  1. Place the flour and salt in a mixing bowl. Measure the warm (skin temperature) water into a jug and stir in the yeast and honey. Leave until bubbly (about 10 minutes) Add the olive oil.
  2. Make a well in the centre of the flour and add the yeast mixture a little at a time. Knead for 10 minutes by pushing the dough with the heel of your hand. Place the dough in an oiled bowl and cover. Leave in a warm place for at least an hour, until doubled.
  3. Mix the garlic, oil and herbs. Dust your surface with flour, briefly knead the dough and break it into small golf ball sized balls. Place on a large baking tray so that they just touch.
  4. Brush the garlic oil all over the dough balls with a brush or your fingers. Leave in a warm place for 30 minutes to rise.
  5. Bake in a preheated oven for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown
