Shape dough by hand, into a round mound, spreading about a 1 of thickness.
Cover and let rise in a warm place for about an hour or until doubled in size. (About 45 minutes into rise, turn the oven on to preheat and help warm the kitchen).
Brush with a little olive oil, sprinkle with rosemary and salt if desired.
Bake at 375F for 20-25 minutes until crust is golden and crispy. Bread is meant to be a flatter shape and not high rising bread.
Serve with olive oil flavored with fresh ground pepper.
