  • 1 1/2 C 12 ounces warm water
  • 3 Tbsp 1 1/4 ounces olive oil (plus additional for drizzling)
  • 1 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 1/2 C 14 ¾ ounces all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp instant yeast
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 3 tsp dried herbs I used Italian Seasoning
  • dried herbs for sprinkling


  • Lightly grease a 9" x 13" pan, and drizzle 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil in the bottom.
  • Combine all of the ingredients, except the dried herbs for sprinkling, and beat at high speed with an electric mixer for 60 seconds.
  • Scoop the sticky batter into the prepared pan, cover the pan, and let it rise at room temperature for 60 minutes, till it is puffy.
  • While the dough is rising, preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • Gently poke the dough all over with your index finger.
  • Drizzle it lightly with olive oil, and sprinkle with the dried herbs of your choice, if desired.
  • Bake the bread till it’s golden brown, 35 to 40 minutes.
  • Remove it from the oven, wait 5 minutes, then turn it out of the pan onto a rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.
  • To make cheese-stuffed bread: Add 1 cup crumbled feta cheese to the dough after it's been kneaded for 60 seconds
