"These Spanish olive oil tortas are somewhere between a flatbread and a crisp bread in texture and are delicious alone (with soup, for example), or topped with whatever you like - cream cheese, cold meat, pesto, antipasto. You choose!"

  1. Stir 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons water, olive oil, and yeast together in a bowl. Set aside in a warm place for 10 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly oil 2 large baking sheets.
  3. Mix flour, thyme, rosemary, and salt together in a separate bowl. Make a well in the center and slowly pour in the yeast mixture, stirring gradually using a fork. Knead gently by hand until a smooth dough forms, 2 to 3 minutes. Add more flour 1 tablespoon at a time if dough is sticky. Let rest in a warm place for 5 to 10 minutes.
  4. Lightly flour a clean work surface and a rolling pin. Divide dough into 8 equal pieces; shape each into a ball. Roll out each ball into a 6-inch circle. Place 4 tortas on each baking sheet.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 6 to 7 minutes. Flip tortas over and bake until golden brown, 6 to 7 minutes more. Watch closely towards the end to ensure that they don't burn. Transfer to wire racks to cool.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You can use other herbs and spices - for example, 1 1/2 tablespoons dried basil plus 1 tablespoon garlic powder works well. Note that I use salt sparingly, so if your preference is for something saltier you may want to add more.
