Ingredients: Dough

1 ½ cup water

1 teaspoon dry yeast

4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

Drizzle olive oil

Method

  • Place ¼ cup very warm water in a small bowl and sprinkle with the yeast. Let it sit for 5 min or until yeast is hydrated and creamy
  • Place flour, salt, remaining water and yeast mixture in a mixer bowl fitted with dough hook
  • Mix on low speed for 2 mins to combine
  • If the dough appears too wet and sticky and it is not combining, add another tablespoon of flour until it binds
  • Drizzle with oil and mix for 2 minutes more. Dough should form a smooth ball and clear the sides of the mixing bowl
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it rest for 20 minutes
  • Resume mixing on medium low speed for 3 minutes or until dough forms a smooth ball clearing sides of the bowl again.
  • Place in a lightly oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap and let it sit for another 2 ½ hours. Dough will double in size. Use immediately.
