After first rising, knead 15 ml coarsely chopped fresh rosemary into dough and press into a greased and lined 24 x 28 cm rectangular baking tray. Allow to rise until double in size. Mix the olive oil, the remainder of the rosemary and the crushed garlic cloves together. Spread over the risen dough, then, using your fingertips, press into dough to make indentations.
