There is no better smell then fresh bread coming out of the oven. Rosemary happens to be one of my most favorite herbs and I love rosemary and olive oil bread . I wanted My place to smell that way so tried making this yummy bread at home and let me tell you that the end result was more then satisfying .
This bread is super fluffy and soft on the inside and a little crispy crust on the outside.
For this bread we will be needing
21/2 cup All Purpose flour , plus more for dusting
1 1/2 tsp active dry yeast.
2 teaspoons sugar
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
2 tablespoons dried rosemary
1 teaspoon salt
2 tsp Freshly ground pepper
1 cup warm water
Stir the yeast, sugar and 1/4 cup warm water in a large bowl (or in the bowl of a stand mixer). Let sit until foamy, about 5 minutes.
Add 2 tablespoon olive oil, All Purpose flour, rosemary, salt and black pepper and 3/4 cup warm water; stir with a wooden spoon (or with the dough hook if using a mixer) until a dough forms.
Place dough on a greased baking sheet and gently pat edge to shape .
Let dough rest at room temperature until doubled .
