Prep Time



  1. Put the water, yeast, salt, sugar and 1 tablespoon of the flour into a large mixing bowl. Stir together, cover and leave for 10 minutes.
  2. Add the remaining flour and mix until smooth. Cover the bowl with a damp cloth and set aside for at least 45 minutes, or up to 2½ hours to rise.
  3. Preheat the oven to 220˚C bake. Oil a large, shallow roasting dish.
  4. Scrape the risen dough into the dish and, with oiled hands, spread it out evenly. Dimple the top with your fingers and sprinkle with salt. Add small sprigs of rosemary and scatter with the garlic if you like.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes until risen and golden brown. Brush with more oil if you wish and serve warm.

Amazing and have made heaps of times


Such an easy recipe and so very yummy


I have made this recipe countless times and it always turns out amazing!!! (i even have one in the oven now!!) one thing i would recomend is brushing the bread with oil before putting it into the oven becuase it just makes it genrally better. my favourite topping is rosemary but you can do it with pretty much anything!


Incredibly easy to make and tastes amazing! Definitely use baking paper.


This is so easy to make and versatile, I put spaghetti, ham and a little cheese on top before baking and made pizza bread. Great for school lunchboxes


I recommend using baking paper as well as oil in the pan or it can stick badly. Delicious, though.


This recipe is great so easy to whip up and done within a couple of hours
