Olive Bread

Another easy dough recipe is here! After the best-ever pizza dough, low fat stuffed bread and zaatar rolls it’s time for some olive bread! Easy and very very delicious (nothing is left for the second day). These Olive Bread are best enjoyed with a side of labneh, some vegetables and morning tea. I’m so in love!

Dough recipes are sometimes intimidating but if you make it step by step, it’s a guaranteed success! Especially in this olive bread recipe, you mix everything, let the dough rests then immediately bake. And if you’re running out of time, you can just leave the dough resting and bake it whenever you can!
