I saw this recipe on King Arthur's blog and it looked like one recipe that didn't have too many ingredients and not too complicated to make. So that tempted me into trying it out! I must say that KA's blog is awesome! It gives you a set-by-step picture tutorial of everything they make. That is sooooo helpful. After every step you know how your ingredients are supposed to look. You can find the recipe here and I've also listed it below.
- Mix 3 cups all purpose flour, 1 tbsp yeast, 3 tbsp olive oil, 1.5 cups warm water, 1.25 tsp salt in a bowl with an electric mixer for 60 seconds. I have the small egg-beater kind of mixer and once the dough was together I couldn't mix it further with the beater so I just mixed it with hand.
- Line a 9 X 13 pan with parchment paper (or butter paper or just grease it) and drizzle olive oil over it.
- Take the dough and spread it all over the pan.
- Let it rise for 60 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 375 F.
- With your index finger punch the dough to make small craters, spread some olive oil and garnish with dried italian herbs. I have italian seasoning so I used that but you can use whatever herbs you have/want. I think you can use fresh ones also, they would give a really nice aroma.
- Bake for 35-40 minutes.
