  • 1 pk Active dry yeast
  • 1 c Warm water

bowl. Make a well in the center of flour mixture and pour in yeast and 2

onion in 2 tbsp. olive oil for 5 minutes over medium heat until soft. Cool.
Punch dough down and knead again on a well-floured surface. Work onions and
whole olives into dough as you knead. Oil a baking tray or 9-inch loaf pan.
Shape dough into a ball and place on prepared tray or in pan. Cover and let
rise again in a warm place for 1 hour. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bake
loaf for 1 hour, until lightly browned. Cool on wire rack.
