How to do it!


Put the flour and salt in a bowl. Dissolve the yeast in the water and pour into the bowl. Mix everything with a ladle or a food processor until a smooth dough is obtained. Brush a bowl with some oil and put the dough into the bowl, dust with some flour. Cover and leave to rise twice. It may take about 30 minutes.

In the meantime prepare the topping. Chop the garlic, shallots and rosemary and thyme and fry them gently in the olive oil.

Now preheat the oven to 220°C.

Spread the dough on the prepared tray with wet hands about 35 cm x 25 cm. Press in the dough with your fingertips. Now spread the topping evenly.
