White Spelt Party Bread

Makes 1 tray bake loaf

This sharing bread is always fun to make and is an eye-catching party food. You can be creative with the toppings and swap them for things like sweetcorn, mushrooms, chopped ham or chorizo. If possible, I serve this bread slightly warm.

Base

  1. Put the flour, yeast, sugar and salt into a large bowl and blend them together.

  7. Knead the dough for another 100 presses.
  8. Put the dough into the prepared tin and press it out to cover the full surface.
  9. Score the dough into 24 rectangles.

 Topping

  1. Slice the peppers, dice the onion, halve the tomatoes, chop the olives and drain the cabbage, making a separate pile for each.
  2. Place a small pile of one topping in the middle of each of the 24 rectangles.
  3. Scatter the rosemary and salt over the top and leave the tray in a warm place to prove for 30 minutes.
  4. Pre-heat the oven.
  5. Drizzle oil over the top.
  6. Bake for 30-35 minutes until the dough is cooked and the toppings are sizzling.
