Recipe type: Bread
Serves: 2
  • 1 tbsp dry yeast
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2½ -3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp fresh chopped rosemary or 2 tsp dry rosemary
  • 1 tbsp oil, olive oil or canola
  • nonstick cooking spray
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • coarse salt
  1. Combine yeast, sugar and warm water in a large mixing bowl. Allow to sit for 5-10 minutes or until frothy.
  2. mix in salt ½ of the rosemary and 2¼ cups flour (you can do this by hand or with a mixer fitted with a bread hook)
  3. Mix/ knead until dough is smooth and elastic about 8-10 minutes by hand or 3-5 minutes in a mixer…you may need to add more flour, It takes about 2¾ cup – 3 cups for me when I make it. Add a little at a time and try not to exceed 3 cups.
  4. In a large glass or plastic bowl, place oil and use your hand or a paper towel to coat the inside of the bowl with the oil. Divide dough into two pieces and shape each one into a circle place both circles (side by side) in the oiled bowl, cover and place in warm area. Allow to rise until doubles. Approx 30-40 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 450 degrees
  6. Spray baking sheet with cooking spray, shape dough into two small round loaves and place each one on the cooking sheet 4-5 inches apart. Use fingers to push down and leave small wells where the butter can gather.
  7. Using a pastry brush, brush butter evenly over the two loaves
  8. Sprinkle each loaf with remaining rosemary and about ¼- 1/2 tsp of coarse salt per loaf.
  9. Bake at 450 for 18-23 minutes or until golden brown.
  10. Serve warm with dipping sauce (recipe to follow) you can slice it or just rip off pieces.
