Rosemary Olive Oil Crock Pot Bread
3½ cups all purpose flour
1 packet dry active yeast (2¼ teaspoons)
1¼ cups warm water
¼ cup fresh rosemary, chopped, divided
3 tablespoons Ultra Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil, plus more for drizzling
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon sea salt or kosher salt, divided
You will also need:
In a large bowl, mix together the water, yeast, and sugar. Let sit 10 minutes. The mixture should become bubbly.
Stir in half of the salt (1/2 teaspoon), half of the rosemary (2 tablespoons), the 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, and all of the flour. Mix until fully combined. Work it together with your hands, if necessary.
Lightly grease a large bowl and place the dough in. Cover it with a kitchen towel and leave the dough in a warm, draft-free area. Let it sit and rise for 1 hour.
Remove the dough from the bowl and gently roll it into a ball on a floured surface. Let it sit for another 20 minutes.
Set the crock pot to high. Line the crock pot with two pieces of parchment paper, leaving at least 2 inches hanging out of each side of the crock pot. Place the dough in the crock pot and sprinkle it with the remaining salt and rosemary.
