500g White Flour

1 x Grated parsnip

15g Olive Oil

20g Yeast (dried is fine but

1 x dessertspoon Mixed herbs or garlic chopped

5g Salt

275ml Tepid Water (approx)

Grated cheese for topping.


  1. Place all the ingredients in a large bowl except the parsnip. Gradually add the water to make a soft dough then tip out onto a floured surface and knead.
  2. As the dough comes together add the grated parsnip and continue to knead for about 6-8 minutes.
  3. Put into a bowl and cover, leave to prove until doubled in size.
  4. Once risen turn out onto the table cut into two pieces – gently knock the air out of the dough pieces and shape into two batons.
  5. Place on a lined baking tray and sprinkle with a generous covering of cheese. Leave to prove – once risen and your finger leaves a dent when pressed in the dough.
  6. Put in a hot oven (200’) and bake for 25 minutes.
