Ingredients:
1 Tbsp. dry yeast (1 packet) 1 1/3 - 1 1/2 c. warm water 3 Tbsp. olive oil 5 c. flour 2 tsp. salt 1 Tbsp. chopped basil Topping 4 Tbsp. olive oil 4 garlic cloves 12 fresh basil leaves
Directions:
This simple Italian flat bread, with its characteristic dimpled shape, adds an authentic note to an Italian dinner. Dissolve the yeast in 1/4 c. of the warm water. The water should be just as warm as a baby's bottle, test it by sprinkling a few drops on the inside of your wrist. Add the remaining water, and then 3 Tbsp. of olive oil. Let stand. Add flour, salt and basil. Knead to make an elastic dough. Let stand in an oiled bowl to rise about an hour. Place on a baking sheet and flatten into a disc. Use your finger to poke holes in the dough. Top with brushed olive oil, chopped garlic cloves and scattered basil leaves. Bake at 375F for about 30 minutes, or until golden brown.
