• 2 cups white Flour
  • 2 cups whole grain Flour
  • 2 cups of warm water
  • 1 teaspoon Yeast
  • 1 teaspoon Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Salt
  • ¼ cup Olive Oil


  1. In a large bowl, mix the different types of flour
  2. Make a hole in the middle of the flour mix for Yeast, Sugar, and some Water.
  3. Add Salt on the sides of the mix, avoid mixing Salt with Yeast
  4. Mix yeast with sugar and water until it bubbles.
  5. Add a cup of warm water to the bowl and mix all ingredients together.
  6. Have another cup of warm water to the side and add slowly to flour mixture. You may not use the entire cup. 
  7. Continue mixing flour and water until you can form a ball. At this point it should be a bit sticky. 
  8. Pour olive oil into your hands and proceeds to work it into the dough. You may not use a full ¼ cup. 
  9. Knead for 8-10 minutes. Most of the dough should come off your hands and combine into the dough. It should be elastic and slightly sticky. 
  10. Oil the dough and the bowl then cover it for 15 minutes. 
  11. Divide dough into 2-3 portions depending on the size of the bread you would like. 
  12. Using the divided pieces form 2-3 smaller balls.
  13. Sprinkle flour on a board or counter-top and begin to push down the ball of dough starting in the center, like you would to form a pizza crust. Moroccan bread is traditionally circle-shaped.
  14. Make a hole all the way though the middle. 
  15. The dough should be about ¼” thick and even on all sides.  
  16. Cover with a towel and continue to shape the remainder of the portions into loaves. 
  17. Allow dough to rise for 45 minutes. Preheat the oven to 400F. 
  18. Once dough has risen, place it on a cookie sheet or baking stone and place it in the oven. 
  19. Bake until it begins to brown and makes a hollow sound when tapped, about 18-20 minutes.
  20. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
  21. Bon Appétit!
