  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. In a medium bowl dissolve sugar in 1/2 cup warm water. To proof yeast, stir in yeast and let stand for 5 to 10 minutes in a warm place.
  2. Preheat oven to 105 degree F (40 degrees C). Warm an oven-safe bowl in the oven.
  3. Place flour in bowl of food processor. Add salt and pulse for a few seconds.
  4. Start food processor. Pour proofed yeast into flour through hole. Immediately add the additional 3/4 cup warm water, then the olive oil. Process for about 1 minute or until dough ball cleans the sides of the processor bowl. If dough is too wet add a little flour through the top while processing, or if too dry, add a little more water.
  5. Turn off food processor. Remove lid and transfer dough to the heated bowl. Cover with a plate or plastic wrap.
  6. Let rise for a half hour in a warm place, like the lukewarm oven.
  7. In a small bowl, combine minced garlic and chopped olives. Set aside.
  8. Once dough has risen, transfer dough to a lightly floured board. Make an indentation in the dough and place olive mixture inside. Knead dough 10 times. Bulk of mixture should remain in middle of dough. Form dough into a log or round loaf shape.
  9. Grease a pie pan (for a round loaf) or a baking sheet (for a log) and dust with cornmeal. Place loaf on prepared pan, cover with greased plastic wrap, and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  10. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  11. Bake bread in preheated oven until browned and loaf sounds hollow when tapped, about 30 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.

Given the glowing reviews, I was disappointed. This is a flat-tasting, substanceless bread, essentially a loaf of wonder bread with diced garlic and olive in it. I was able to improve it a bit b...
