- 1 package dry active yeast
- 1 cup warm water (105 degree F to 115 degree F)
- 1 egg
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 1/4 tsp kosher salt
- 3 ½ – 4 cups all-purpose flour
In a small bowl, stir yeast into warm water; let stand for 5 minutes.
In a large mixing bowl, combine egg, oil, and salt. Stir in the yeast mixture. Add 1-1/4 cups of the flour. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds, scraping bowl constantly. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes. Using a wooden spoon, stir in as much of the remaining flour as you can.
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead in enough remaining flour to make a moderately stiff dough that is smooth and elastic (6 to 8 minutes total). Lightly grease a large bowl; place dough in bowl and cover with a damp towel (make sure the towel does not touch the dough). Let dough rise in a warm place until double in size (30 minutes).
Punch dough down. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll into two 8x 5-inch rectangle. Place in a greased baking pan. Cover with damp towel and let rise for 20 minutes.
