Olive Breadsticks

INGREDIENTS

1kg white bread flour, plus extra for dusting 10g salt 20g instant yeast 800ml room temperature water 4 Tbsp olive oil, plus extra for oiling 5 packs Green Pitted Buffet Olives, drained Optional: fine semolina, for dusting

METHOD

Oil two 2-3 litre square plastic containers. Put the flour into the bowl of a mixer (with a dough hook). Add salt to one side of the bowl and the yeast to the other. Add ¾ of the water and begin mixing on slow speed. As the dough starts to come together, gradually add the remaining water. Mix an additional 5 -8 mins on medium speed. The dough should now be wet and stretch easily. Add the olive oil and mix for another 2 mins. Add the Green Pitted Buffet Olives and mix until well-distributed. Line 4 baking trays with parchment and preheat the oven to 220C. Dust the top of the dough with flour and stretch it out gently to a rough rectangle. Cut the dough into approx. 36 strips. Stretch each piece until it is 20 -25cm long. Place six strips onto each of the prepared baking trays, spacing them apart. Bake the Olive Breadsticks for 10 -15 mins. Cool on wire rack. Enjoy!
