  • 23 TBS extra virgin olive oil
  • 23 TBS flour

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 200 ° and then turn it off.
  2. Very lightly rub some oil on the inside of the mixer bowl so the dough won’t stick.
  3. In a stand mixer, add the 3 3/4 cups of flour, yeast, 1/2 teaspoon salt and water.
  4. Mix until the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.
  5. Place dough in skillet and place skillet in the oven that has preheated and been turned off.

  8. Place the dough back into the skillet, cover it with a hot towel and let it rise for 1 hour.
  9. Preheat oven to 400°.
  10. The dough should be spread out in the skillet.
  11. Poke the dough with your finger to make little dimples all over the top.
  12. Sprinkle the top with the rosemary and sun-dried tomatoes.
  13. Drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle the entire top with the coarse sea salt.
  14. Place the skillet in the oven and bake for 35-45 minutes

Notes

I used a stand mixer with a dough hook to mix the dough, but you can also do this by hand.
