Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 tsp dry yeast
  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 3 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • salt, to taste
  • 1/2 cup pitted kalamata olives sliced
  • 1/4 cup pitted green olives, sliced
  • 1/2 Tbsp thyme
  • 1/2 Tbsp basil
  • 1/2 Tbsp rosemary

Preparation

1. Place the yeast and water in the bowl fitted with the kneading/crushing blade. Heat at speed 3 at 100°F for 2 minutes.

2. Add the flour, olive oil, salt, olives, thyme, basil and rosemary. Launch the P1 pastry program. After 2 minutes 30 seconds of mixing, your dough should be shaped like a ball. Be careful to leave it in the Prep&Cook to rise for the next 40 minutes of the program.

3. Preheat the oven to 400°F.

4. When the dough is ready, remove it from the bowl and place it on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Divide dough in half. Roll each into an oval about 1 1/2 inches thick. Cut slits with a knife. Bake for about 25 minutes.
