INGREDIENTS

 For bread

250 gm plain flour

1 tsp yeast

1 tsp salt

1 tsp sugar

½ tsp dried oregano

1 tbsp olive oil

¾ cup water

For topping

3 tbsp olive oil

½ onion, sliced

2 tbsp sliced olives in brine, rinsed

8 – 10 cherry tomatoes, halved

2 cloves garlic, crushed and chopped

Rosemary sprigs

3 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese

¼ tsp salt

Method

  • Sift flour into a mixing bowl, stir in the yeast, salt, sugar and oregano.
  • Make a well in the centre, pour in the oil and most of the water and mix into a dough.
  • Transfer onto a sturdy worktop and knead into soft dough, adding a little more water only if necessary.
  • Place in a greased bowl, cover with a well-fitting lid and allow to cure for about 40 minutes or till doubled in size.
  • Take the dough out of the bowl and punch it down to expel the air.
  • Knead it briefly, roll out into a ½ inch thick rectangle and place on the back of a large baking sheet.
  • Leave the dough undisturbed for about 10 minutes and then make well-spaced indentations with a finger.
  • Brush oil over the dough, arrange the onion slices, olives, tomatoes, garlic and cheese over it.
  • Push in tiny sprigs of rosemary, sprinkle salt and leave it for another 15 minutes.
  • Bake in a preheated 200°C oven for about 15 – 20 minutes or till the bread rises and the skins of the tomatoes have shrivelled just a tiny bit.
  • Remove from the oven, cool on a wire rack and slice into squares to serve.
