Instructions

Prep

  2. Add the yeast mixture, olive oil herb mixture, 2 tsp flaked salt, and flour together and mix until combined - adding more water as needed.

  4. Line a 1/4 baking sheet with parchment paper and spread out the dough until it's between 1/4" and 1/2" thick.
  5. Use your fingers to push holes in the dough all around like in the photos.
  6. Drizzle all over with olive oil (about 2 tbsp) and use a pastry brush to even it all out.

Bake

  2. When done, remove from the oven and spread on the remaining marinated olive oil and garlic.
  3. Sprinkle more salt and cracked black pepper on the entire bread.
