This super-simple recipe uses regular white bread dough (make your own from scratch or buy a bag of already-proven dough from your local supermarket). The next step is to flatten it out in your baking dish, press pitted olives, walnuts and dried figs into the top, drizzle with olive oil and bake for quarter of an hour. Cut it into squares and serve hot from the oven.
