A very quick and simple Italian-inspired bread; bringing together olive oil and oregano


  • 375g strong bread flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons (tsps) instant/dried yeast (I use Allinson's)
  • 2 tablespoons (tbs) olive oil
  • 80mls boiled water and 160mls cold water
  • 2 teaspoons (tsps) crushed/ground oregano


  • STEP 1
    Combine the flour and yeast together in a large bowl, mixing with a large wooden fork (preferable)
  • STEP 2
    Make a well and pour in the boiled water and olive oil, then quickly blend together the mixture from the outside, in
  • STEP 3
    Bind together until a relatively wet but combined dough and then take out of bowl, to knead on to a lightly-floured surface
  • STEP 4
    Once smooth, shape in to a thick cylinder and place in to a small, pre-oiled loaf tin and bake in a pre-heated oven (200 degrees C; fan) for 30 minutes.
