  • 500 g Strong White Bread Flour
  • 15 g Dried Yeast - I used 2 packed of dried yeast so it was roughly 14g
  • 10 g Salt 1 teaspoon
  • 320 g room temp water
  • 3 tablespoons of pesto


  • Mix the flour, yeast and salt.
  • Combine the water with the pesto and mix into the flour with a knife  to form a dough.
  • Knead it on a lightly oiled surface for 10 minutes till smooth.
  • Return the dough to the bowl and cover with a tea towel. Rest for 1 hour till doubled in size.
  • Remove the dough from the bowl and 'knock back' to original size.
  • Divide it into 12 pieces, they should weigh about 80g each.
  • Roll each one into a sausage then tie them into knots.
  • Rest them on the baking sheet or stone and cover with a tea towel. Rest for a further hour to double again.
  • Preheat the oven to 200º.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes. When they sound hollow to the tap they are done.
