DIRECTIONS

  • Place the saffron threads in a heatproof container. Pour the boiling water over the strands and let infuse until lukewarm.
  • While the saffron is infusing, place the flour, salt, yeast and olive oil in a food processor. Turn machine on and gradually add the saffron and its soaking liquid. Process until the dough forms a ball.
  • Turn the dough out onto a floured board and knead 10-15 minutes. Place in a bowl, cover and allow to rise until doubled in size, approximately 30-40 minutes.
  • Punch down the dough and roll into an oval shape about 1/2" thick. (The shape does not have to be perfect.) Place the dough on a greased aluminum baking sheet and allow to rise for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Using your fingertips, press indentations over the surface of the bread.
  • Brush lightly with olive oil, cover with the topping ingredients, and lightly drizzle a small amount olive oil on top.
  • Bake 25 minutes or until the loaf sounds hollow when tapped on the base.
  • Let cool on a wire rack.
