Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 packet active dry yeast
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt flakes

Instructions

  1. In a bowl, combine the warm water, sugar, and yeast. Let it sit for about 10 minutes until foamy.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt. Pour in the yeast mixture and olive oil. Mix until a sticky dough forms.
  3. Knead the dough on a floured surface for about 5-7 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.
  4. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it, and let it rise for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
  5. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Punch down the dough and transfer it to a greased baking sheet. Press it out to fit the sheet.
  6. Using your fingers, create dimples in the dough’s surface. Drizzle olive oil over the top and sprinkle with rosemary, thyme, and sea salt flakes.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and crispy on the outside.
  8. Allow it to cool slightly before slicing and serving. Enjoy the sensory experience!
