In a large bowl, combine the olive oil with water, yeast and salt. 
Let it sit for five minutes. Mix the herbs and sugar into the flour.

Stir in the flour mixture until the dough is stiff enough to knead. 
Add the flour a little bit at a time. Three cups flour is an 
approximate amount, your exact amount may vary. slightly

Knead the dough until it is smooth and elastic-just a few minutes.

Place dough in a greased bowl; cover and let rise until the dough has 
doubled. (about 45 minutes)

Form the dough into an oval free-form style loaf and place on greased 
baking sheet. (Dust baking sheet with flour first if desired and make 
slits in the top of the loaf for a nice finish when done.) Place 
immediately in a 375F oven. Do not preheat the oven, the bread will 
rise some more as your oven heats up. Bake for 30-40 minutes.
