2 cloves garlic, crushed
coarse sea salt
3 tablespoons olive oil
a few sage leaves, roughly torn
Stir together the flours, yeast, salt, sugar, sage and garlic in a mixing bowl. Add the olive oil and water then mix everything, using a dough hook to form a rough ball. Increase to medium speed and knead the dough for about 10 minutes. Turn the dough out onto working surface, knead by hands for another 5-10 minutes until the dough is smooth and elastic.
Preheat the oven to 200c. Dimple the dough with your fingertips ,make sure you press them down deep enough. Brush the dough with 2 tbsp olive oil, then sprinkle the sea salt over and decorate with sage. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes. Leave to cool in the tray for 5 minutes before turning the bread out onto a wire rack to cool a bit more before served.
