Servings 12


  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 1/4 cups bread flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons dried rosemary


  1. Place all the ingredients into the pan of your bread machine, in the order your dough machine requires. Select the Dough cycle and start it.

  2. Add a generous amount of flour to a counter surface and place dough on it. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest for 20 minutes.

  3. Divide the dough into 2 pieces, forming a bread loaf shape with each. Place dough onto a nonstick baking sheet. Dust lightly with flour on top.

  4. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. With a water bottle, spritz the bread loaves with water. Please don't skip this step - this makes the bread crispy! Bake bread for 25 to 30 minutes, or until slightly brown.
