  • 1 teaspoons kosher sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary minced
  • Coarse sea salt
  • Optional - One egg white

Instructions

  • Add yeast to the bowl of a mixer and add warm water and stir gently to dissolve yeast. Let sit for 3-5 minutes until yeast begins to activate (when it starts to foam).

  • Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Spread a tablespoon of olive oil to a rimmed baking sheet. Uncover the dough, punch it down, and then place the dough on the baking sheet. Stretch the dough out on the baking sheet and then cover to rise for another 30 minutes.
  • Uncover dough and then with your fingers, dimple with oil greased fingers. With a pastry brush, use the remaining oil to brush the top of the dough and then sprinkle with rosemary and coarse sea salt.
  • Either use a egg wash or give a water spray.
  • Turn oven down to 375 and then place the dough in the oven and bake until golden brown (25-30 minutes).
