  • 1 tablespoons - dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoons - sugar
  • 1 cups - warm water
  • 2 1/2 cups - all-purpose flour, or 3 cups, depending
  • 1 teaspoons - salt
  • 2 tablespoons - fresh chopped rosemary, or 2 tsp dry rosemary
  • 1 tablespoons - olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons - butter, melted
  • - coarse salt
  • Directions:

    Combine yeast, sugar and warm water in a large mixing bowl. Allow to sit for 5-10 minutes or until frothy.

    Mix in salt, 1/2 of the rosemary and 2 1/4 cups flour (you can do this by hand or with a mixer fitted with a bread hook).

    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 2 3/4 cup – 3 cups for me when I make it. Add a little at a time and try not to exceed 3 cups.

    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 doubled - approximately 30-40 minutes.

    Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray baking sheet with cooking spray; shape dough into two small round loaves and place each one on the baking sheet 4-5 inches apart. Use fingers to push down and leave small wells where the butter can gather.

    Using a pastry brush, brush butter evenly over the two loaves.

    Sprinkle each loaf with remaining rosemary and about 1/4- 1/2 tsp of coarse salt per loaf.

    Bake for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.

    Serve warm with dipping sauce; you can slice it or just rip off pieces.
