  • Place the sugar in a small bowl and sprinkle over the dried yeast. Pour in ½ of the measured warm water. Leave in a warm place until frothy, about 5 minutes.
  • Sift the flour and salt into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook. Add the wholemeal flour and avocado rosemary oil.
  • Add the remaining warm water and the activated yeast mixture. Mix until well combined and the dough is smooth and shiny. (Kneading can be done by hand. Knead dough on a lightly-floured bench for 10-15 minutes until smooth).
  • Turn out onto a lightly-floured bench and knead into a ball. Clean the bowl and lightly oil. Place in the dough, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and a tea towel and leave in a warm place to rise until the dough has doubled in size, at least 1 hour and up to 1 ½ hours.
  • Line a baking tray with baking paper and drizzle with 2 tablespoons of the measured oil. Brush or smear the oil into a circle (about 25cm in diameter). Place the dough on the circle and using the palm of your hand stretch it out to make a 25cm circle. Use your fingertips to press the dough to make indentations all over the surface of the dough.
  • Stud the dough evenly with the cherry tomatoes, Maison Therese balsamic onion relish and fresh rosemary. Drizzle over the extra virgin avocado oil and 1 ½ tablespoons water.
  • Cover the dough loosely with plastic wrap and a tea towel and leave in a warm place for about 1 hour.
  • Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 230°C.
  • Place prepared bread dough in the oven and bake for 15 minutes until well browned. Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack and brush or drizzle with a little extra avocado oil. Sprinkle over a little flaky salt.
