Ingredients

  • 250g self-raising flour
  • 115g wholemeal flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp mixed Italian herbs
  • 4 tbsp Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 8 pieces Italian sun-dried tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 100g feta cheese,cut into small cubes
  • 10 black olives, pitted and roughly chopped
  • 1 large egg
  • 200ml full fat milk

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 220ºC/425ºF/Gas Mark 7. Grease a baking sheet.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flours, baking powder, cayenne pepper, salt and herbs. Add the olive oil and using a palette knife, work the oil into the dry ingredients. When the mixture looks lumpy, add the sun dried tomatoes, cheese and olives.
  3. Beat the egg with the milk, then add all but 2 tbsp of the mixture to the bowl. Mix together with the knife until it becomes a sticky dough.
  4. Quickly bring it together with floured hands and turn onto a floured work surface. Shape the dough into a round of 3cm thickness.
