Directions

Preparation
Step 1
Place dry mix in the bowl of a standing mixer. Add yeast and 1 teaspoon rosemary and mix on low to blend. Measure hot water from tap or heat for 30 seconds in a microwave. Must be 105-110 degrees. I check with an instant read thermometer. Add the oil to the water. Turn on the mixer to low and slowly pour the liquid into the dry ingredients. When the dough pulls away from the sides, turn off the mixer. With a rubber spatula, make sure all the flour is mixed into the dough.
Step 2
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and grease an 8-inch round baking pan. I also placed a round of parchment in the bottom of the pan and greased that. Place dough in baking pan. Cover and set on the warming stove top for about 20 minutes to allow dough to rise. When ready to bake, sprinkle top with spice mix of basil, remaining rosemary and salt. (Topping) Bake for about 15 minutes.
Step 3
Open oven and sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top (final Topping). Bake an additional 15 minutes until golden brown. Serve warm as is or with balsamic and olive oil for dipping.
