- 1 1/2 warm water
- 3/4 tablespoon(s) dry yeast, (or 1 1/4-oz) package
- 1 teaspoon(s) sugar
- 4 cup(s) all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon(s) salt
- 3 tablespoon(s) olive oil, plus additional as needed
- Stir together the water, yeast, and sugar. Let the mixture rest until the yeast blooms, 3-4 minutes.
- Place 3 cups of the flour and the salt in a mixing bowl. Add the yeast mixture and oil, and stir together to form a sticky dough. Knead, adding the remaining flour a little at a time, until the dough becomes a smooth, elastic ball, about 5-8 minutes.
- If your prefer to use an electric mixer, combine the ingredients with the paddle attachment and then change to the dough hook. Add the flour, a little at a time, until the dough is smooth and comes away from the sides of the bowl, about 2-4 minutes.
- Turn the dough into a lightly oiled bowl and cover with a dry cloth. Let rise for 30 minutes in a draft-free spot before stretching or rolling into the desired shape.
