Place warm water in a warm mixing bowl and add yeast. Stir to dissolve and let stand 3 minutes. Add salt and sugar and stir through. Add flour, olive oil, garlic and herbs and mix, using hands until you can knead the dough without it sticking to your fingers. Add more water, if needed.
Remove ball to cutting board. Knead the dough, occasionally dusting with 1 teaspoon flour, until a firm, smooth ball is formed, about 10 minutes. Place ball of dough in a lightly oiled mixing bowl, cover with a clean kitchen towel and allow to rise in a warm place until its size is doubled, about 2 hours. Punch down and divide into 4 pieces.
Roll out dough to fit around medium sized soup bowl or small bowl of choice (ovenproof only) spray lightly with oil and then lay dough over bowl, trimming off edges to keep neat. Bake in a 200deg oven for 10 min, remove, allow to rest for a couple of minutes, then lift off bread and place back in the oven to crisp inside while you make the next bowl, repeat with remainder of dough
