  • Ingredients
  • 350g (12oz) strong plain white flour

  5. Cover with oiled clear film and leave to rise, in a warm place, for about 20 minutes or until almost doubled in size. Using your fingertips make deep dimples over the surface of the dough. Cover and leave to rise for about 10 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Uncover and sprinkle over the sage leaves, red onion, salt and pepper.
