Preparation

Mix the flour and add the yeast, sugar and salt. Make a small hollow in the middle. Add the water and oil and begin to knead. The dough should be soft and quite moist. When the dough is ready, put it on the baking paper and grease the surface. Cover with a cloth and let it rise for 50 minutes. Preheat the oven to 200°C in a static oven or 180°C in a fan oven. Divide the dough into small pieces and draw them out into long strips. Plait three strips of dough into a braid. Place the braids on a baking sheet covered with baking paper and bake for 20 minutes. Once ready, allow the braids to cool, wrap in a slice of Speck Alto Adige PGI and decorate with rocket.
