I visited Komiža a few years ago. And out of season. As I usually do not sleep long, I had the opportunity to walk the deserted streets in the early morning and soak up all the scents and colors in silence, and on the way back to the accommodation the first residents appeared, so I stopped and “eavesdropped” (fascinated by their dialect). I didn’t have a chance to try Komiža bread at the time, but I knew I would make it myself at some point. I was inspired by a recipe that David Skoko posted on 24kitchen, and thanks also to Ana, who encouraged me to finally make it with her post on Instagram.
- 20 g of fresh yeast
- 600 g Schar Mix B flour
- 10 g of salt
- 10 ml of olive oil
- 400 ml of lukewarm water
Stir the yeast in 100 ml of lukewarm water, add a little sugar and flour. Put the flour, salt, olive oil and remaining water in the bowl of a stand-alone mixer and add the risen yeast. Mix until the dough forms, then shape it into a ball. Cover the bowl with cling film and let the dough rise for about 45 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the filling.
- 1 small onion
- 2 cloves garlic
- 300 g peeled tomatoes
- About 10 fillets of salted anchovies
- 5-6 roasted black olives (cut into pieces)
- About 10 capers
- spices (salt, freshly ground pepper, rosemary, oregano)
Saute the onion in olive oil. Add sliced garlic and peeled tomatoes, then season and simmer for ten minutes until thickened. Allow to cool. Divide the risen dough into two parts. Roll out one part and coat with the prepared tomato filling. Arrange capers, olives and anchovies on the filling. Roll out the remaining dough and cover and join the edges (cut off the excess dough if necessary). Coat the dough with olive oil and prick with a fork. Bake for 25-30 minutes in an oven preheated to 200 ° C until the dough gets a nice color.
