  • 1 cup lukewarm water
  • 2 tsp dried active yeast
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 - 2 ½ cups strong flour (high grade)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp Wattie’s Tomato Paste
  • rock salt
  • fresh rosemary

NEW Wattie’s® Tomato Paste sachet 70g

Ideal for creating delicious pasta sauces and casseroles, the unique single serve format means there’s no mess or waste. No added salt or sugar or preservatives.


1. Place the water in a jug; check it isn’t too warm before stirring in the yeast and the sugar. Set aside for 5 minutes to start working.

2. Mix the flour and salt together into a large bowl. Make a well and pour in the yeast, oil and Wattie’s Tomato Paste.

3. Mix together to form a dough; if it is too dry and crumbly add a little more water, if it is too wet add a little more flour.

4. Knead for about 5 minutes until dough is smooth and elastic.

5. Brush a clean bowl with oil and place dough inside and cover with plastic wrap and place somewhere warm to double in size for about 30-60 minutes.

6. Punch the dough to knock the gas out and push out into a rectange shape and make finger holes over the top surface. Cover again with oiled foil and leave in a warm place to double in size.

7. Brush with oil and sprinkle with rock salt and rosemary pieces. Bake in an oven preheated to 200°C for 15-20 minutes or until golden and hollow sounding when tapped.
