  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour *
  • 1 teaspoon instant yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup olives , halved, pitted
  • 2 garlic cloves , minced


  • In a large mixing bowl, add the flours, instant yeast, dried oregano, dried basil and salt. Give it a quick mix. Then add in the oil and water and mix until combined.
  • Let it sit, covered unter a clean kitchen towel, in a warm spot until it doubles in size (about 1½-2 hours).
  • Preheat the oven to 480°F / 250°C.
  • Transfer the dough to a baking tray lined with lightly floured parchment paper, press down the dough a bit so it's evenly thick. Top with olives and minced garlic and press it into the dough.
  • Then put the bread in the oven and bake for about 15 minutes until golden on the surface.


* No whole wheat flour at home? No problem! You can simply use more AP flour!
