  • 2 tablespoons active dry yeast
  • ½ cup lukewarm water for the yeast, 100°-110°
  • ¾ cup lukewarm water - for later
  • 2 cups all purpose unbleached flour
  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • teaspoon sugar organic
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil for coating the dough
  • cup coconut oil for working in the dough after it has risen once
  • 1 tablespoon ground sage
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seed


  • Add yeast to ½ cup lukewarm water (100°-110°)
  • Set aside for about 10 minutes.
  • Add flours, sugar and salt to a large bowl.
  • Pour the yeast mixture and the other ¾ cup lukewarm water into the well.
  • Stir from the center of the well and slowly stir in the flour from the edge.
  • When incorporated, turn the dough out onto a floured surface.
  • Knead about 5 to 8 minutes and add more flour if it seems too sticky.
  • Form into a ball and transfer into a large bowl that has been coated with oil.
  • Turn the ball so that it is evenly coated.
  • This is important so that a dry layer doesn't form on the dough.
  • Cover with a towel and set in a warm dry place (I put mine inside the oven, not turned on).
  • Let rise about 1 hour or until doubled in size.
  • Uncover the dough and punch down to expel the excess air.
  • Work in (in a folding and kneading motion) ⅛ cup olive oil a little bit at a time and at the same time work in the sage, dill and fennel.
  • Roll out to a ½" thick round.
  • Place on a lightly oiled cookie sheet.
  • Cover and let rise, again, about 1 hour.
  • Prick the dough, lightly, a few times around the top of the dough (see the photos below).
  • Bake at 400• for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Let cool a bit before cutting.


Easily freezable. Just use a freezer safe ziploc bag and you've got it done.
