  5. After the first prove, flatten the dough using the tips of your fingers. Push the dough out to fit the tray.

  6. Preheat the oven to 200°C

  7. Use your fingertips to create irregular dimples in the dough, drizzle with more extra virgin olive oil and chopped rosemary. Sprinkle with a little water and then bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden
