Combine the flour, yeast, salt, sugar and chopped rosemary in a bowl. Add the warm water and olive oil and mix to form a soft dough.

Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic.

Line the multipurpose pan with baking paper & drizzle with olive oil.

Using the palm of your hand, spread the dough into an oval shape approximately

Leaving the dough in the oven, change the oven function to Bread Baking 210˚C with high steam. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes or until golden and crusty.
