Recipe Notes

It is excellent served both hot and cold.
I let the leftover one cool completely and put it in cold and frozen bags.
If you have good black olives, you can add them to the cherry tomatoes.

*Instant yeast can be replaced with 10 grams of fresh yeast and remember to dissolve it in water before adding it to the dough.
