  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1 sachet (7g) active dry yeast

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil

  • 2 tablespoons (40ml) olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese

  1. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, salt, sugar, yeast, garlic powder, oregano, thyme, basil and black pepper. Mix in the vegetable oil and water.
  2. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic. Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with a damp cloth, and let rise in a warm place for 20 minutes.
