  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • cup olive oil, plus 1 teaspoon for topping
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt, divided
  • cups (312.5g) flour


  1. In a large bowl, combine yeast, water, and sugar. Stir and let it rest 5 minutes.

  2. In a small bowl combine olive oil, Italian seasoning, half of the salt, and garlic.

  3. Pour half of the oil mixture into the yeast mixture. Set the remaining oil aside.

  4. Add flour and stir to combine.

  5. Add dough to a greased bowl and cover with a tea towel. Rest for 1 hour or until the dough has doubled in size.

  6. Preheat oven to 450°F.

  7. Pour remaining oil mixture into a 9x11-inch baking dish. Use a pastry brush to coat the pan.

  8. Add the dough to the pan and work the dough to the edges. Use your fingers to create dimples in the dough.

  9. Brush the top of the dough with 1 teaspoon of olive oil and the reserved sea salt. Set in the oven to bake for 18-20 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
