- 400 grams (2 2/3 cups) white bread flour
- 1 package of Active Dry Yeast
- 1 cup warm water
- 1 tablespoon superfine sugar
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 100 grams (2/3 cup) black olives, pitted and chopped
- 100 grams (1/2 cup) sun dried tomatoes, drained and chopped
- 1 tablespoon olive oil from the sun dried tomato jar
- In a stand mixer place the flour, yeast, sugar, and salt. Add the warm water then use the paddle mixer attachment to mix until well combined and a dough forms. Switch to the dough paddle attachment. Add the olives and sun dried tomatoes as well as the oil. Let the machine knead the dough for 3-5 minutes. If the dough is exceptionally wet, add about 1/4 - 1/2 cup additional flour.
- Spray a glass bowl as well as a sheet of plastic wrap with baking spray. Form the dough into a ball and rotate it s a times in the greased bowl to cover its surface with oil. Cover the bowl with the greased plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until dough doubles, approximately 60-90 minutes.
- Punch down the dough and form into a ball again. Place the dough on a parchment lined baking pan or bread baking stone. Cover with greased plastic wrap again and let rise for an additional hour.
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
- Cut a few slashes in the top of the dough with a sharp knife. Place into the oven and bake for 40-45 minutes.
- Cool on a wire rack.
