  • Yield: Makes 1 dozen
Olive Rolls

Source: Martha Stewart Living, November 2005

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for parchment, bowl, and plastic wrap
  • 1/4 ounce active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water, (105 degrees to 110 degrees)
  • 3 to 4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for work surface
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 cup oil-cured black olives, pitted and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Directions

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Brush parchment with oil; set aside. Oil a large bowl; set aside. Sprinkle yeast over warm water in a small bowl. Let stand until foamy, about 5 minutes. Stir until dissolved.

  2. Put 3 cups flour and the salt in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the dough hook. Add yeast mixture and oil; mix on medium speed until a soft dough forms, adding more flour if needed. Add olives and red pepper flakes; mix until fully combined, about 15 minutes.

  3. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured work surface. Knead until smooth and olives are set firmly in the dough, about 15 minutes. Transfer to oiled bowl. Cover loosely with a clean kitchen towel, and let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.

  4. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured work surface; gently flatten. Using a butter knife, cut dough into 12 equal pieces. Roll each into a cylinder, and transfer to prepared baking sheet. Cover with oiled plastic wrap. Let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.

  5. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Bake rolls until tops are crisp and dark brown, about 15 minutes. Serve.
