Nutritional values

Black olives are full-bodied, I admit. But in return they contain a lot of unsaturated fatty acids, which are a real balm for the heart and blood vessels. In order to enjoy the full culinary and health benefits, always look out for the note "unblackened" when shopping.

Instead of olives, you can also knead dried Italian herbs or diced dried tomatoes under the dough. By the way: The bread also works well in the oven - just shape it into a flat cake and bake.
