No Knead Skillet Olive Bread - Very easy to make, no-knead, crusty and delicious bread packed with marinated olives and garlic.

Servings: 10 Servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups lukewarm water (105-degrees Fahrenheit)
  • 1 package active dry yeast (2-1/4 teaspoons)
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • 4-1/3 cups all-purpose flour , divided
  • 1 cup STAR Garlic and Basil Marinated Olives , drained, herbs and garlic reserved (you can either chop the olives or leave them whole)*
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons STAR Olive Oil , divided
  • coarse salt
  • dried parsley

Instructions 

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine water and yeast. Add 1 cup of flour and salt; stir with a wooden spoon until combined.
  • Stir in olives, herbs, garlic and garlic powder.
  • Add remaining flour, one cup at a time, stirring until thoroughly combined. Cover with plastic wrap and set in a warm spot to rise for 1 hour.
  • Add a tablespoon of olive oil in an 10-inch cast iron skillet; using a napkin or your fingers, coat bottom and sides of skillet with the olive oil.
    10-inch skillet refers to the skillet's overall diameter, not just the cooking surface.
    Flour your hands; remove plastic wrap and using your hands, transfer dough to prepared skillet and shape into a disk.** Cover with a kitchen towel and let stand for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 400 Fahrenheit.
  • Drizzle remaining olive oil over the top and sprinkle with salt and parsley. Score the top of the loaf with a knife. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until top is nicely browned.
  • Remove from oven and turn the bread out onto a wire cooling rack.*** Leave to cool. Serve.

Notes

  • The olives sit in a liquid with garlic and herbs; when draining, please try to reserve as much of the herbs and garlic as possible. Alternatively, you can add in your own garlic and freeze-dried basil.
  • If you do not have an iron skillet, you can use a stoneware baking dish, instead.
  • It is important to remove bread from pan as soon as it comes out of the oven because bread left in the pan will get moist and soggy.
