Instructions
  1. Mix together the flours, salt, yeast and mixed herbs.

  2. Add 3 tbsp of the olive oil and the warm water. Stir together until it’s too hard to work with a spoon, then knead with your hands until it’s all elastic. The dough will be moist.

  3. Let it rise an hour or more, then punch it down and shape it into a rectangle. Place it on a baking sheet with about a teaspoon of oil rubbed over it. Let it rest about half an hour.

  4. Stretch the dough out to the edges. Let it rest another half hour. Preheat oven to 425F/220C.

  5. Poke some divots into the top of the loaf, then drizzle with the remaining olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt and rosemary. Reduce the oven temperature to 375F/200C and bake for about 30 minutes. Cool on a rack and cut into squares.
