- 1 tbsp Sugar
- Mix together the water, yeast, Sugar and half of the rosemary.
- Add 1 tsp salt to the flour, then add the flour and salt to the yeast mixture, slowly, until the dough is able to form a ball.

- Place dough in a well oiled bowl, cover, and let sit in a warm place until it doubles in size (about an hour).
- Mix together the oil, rosemary and garlic.
- Punch dough down, and knead a few times to make it easy to handle.
