Servings 9 Slices


  • 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt plus more for topping as desired
  • 1 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
  • 2 tsp granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1/4 cup chopped roasted garlic
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary


  • In a small bowl or glass measuring cup, whisk together the warm water, sugar, and yeast. Set aside and let the yeast proof for 5-10 minutes.
  • Whisk the flour, salt, roasted garlic, and rosemary together in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook.
  • Slowly add in the yeast mixture and knead on high for five minutes.
  • Slowly drizzle in the olive oil, and knead for an additional 3-5 minutes.
  • Transfer the dough to a clean bowl greased with olive oil. Cover with a clean towel and let rise for an hour and a half or until doubled in size.
  • Punch the dough down and knead for one minute.
  • Transfer the dough to an olive oil greased 8” baking pan. Use wet fingers to gently press the dough into the pan. Cover with a clean towel and let it rest for 30 more minutes.
  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375F.
  • Use your fingers to create dimples in the dough. Brush the dough with additional olive oil and sprinkle on flaky sea salt and additional rosemary if desired.
  • Bake for 13-15 minutes, or until the top is golden brown.
