10 to 12 wedges


  • 3 cup all-purpose flour

  • ¾ cup whole wheat or all-purpose flour

  • 1 ¾ teaspoon kosher salt

  • ½ teaspoon active dry yeast

  • 1 ½ cup warm water (120°F to 130°F)

  • ¼ cup chopped pitted kalamata olives

  • ¼ cup chopped roasted red sweet pepper

  • 2 teaspoon fresh rosemary or thyme leaves

  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced

  • 2 tablespoon olive oil


  1. In a large bowl stir together 2 cups of the all-purpose flour, the whole wheat flour, 1 1/2 tsp. of the salt, and the yeast. Stir in the warm water until mixture is moistened (dough will be sticky and soft). Cover bowl loosely with plastic wrap; let rest at room temperature 2 hours.

  2. Lightly grease a 12-inch cast-iron skillet. Using a fork, stir remaining 1 cup all-purpose flour into dough. Gather dough with your hands and spread slightly in prepared skillet. Cover loosely with lightly greased plastic wrap. Let rise at room temperature until puffy (1 1/2 to 2 hours).

  3. Preheat oven to 400°F. Sprinkle dough with olives, roasted pepper, rosemary, and garlic. Drizzle with 1 Tbsp. of the oil and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 tsp. salt. Cook over medium-high heat 3 minutes. Transfer to oven and bake 30 minutes or until golden. Cool slightly in skillet on a wire rack. Drizzle with remaining 1 Tbsp. oil. Serve warm.
