Parmesan, Olive oil & Basil Bread

4 cups Bread flour
2 cup lukewarm water
1 packet active yeast
2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup olive oil
1 cup parmesan cheese
          In a large Bowl, add luke warm water and yeast. Let it sit for ten minutes. Add salt, flour, and 1/4 cup of olive oil.  Using your hands knead the dough, till well mixed. Sprinkle a little flour on a flat surface and pour out the dough. Continue to knead the dough for 8 - 10 minutes.

           Let it rise for 2 hours or more. Look at the picture below:)

If you are busy to bake it right away, put the dough in the refrigrator to let the dough stop from rising until you are deady to bake it.

                    Divide your dough in half and roll it in different pans.

To make your own herbed olive oil. Add 1/2 cups of olive oil in a saucepan heat till slightly warm, remove from heat, add 1/3 cup chopped herbs, let sit over night. I used rosemary basil and rosemary oil.

                                Now that you have your herbed oil.

Add the herbed oil and parmesan on top of the one dough, then top with the other dough.
                              Heat the oven for 425 degrees.
Egg wash your dough and bake at 425 degrees for 20 minutes.
