  • 1 package yeast (1/4-ounce, which is about 2 1/4 teaspoons)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 to 2 1/2 cups bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon table salt
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • Cooking Directions

    Combine 3/4 cup warm water (105° to 115° F), the yeast, and sugar in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the chopping blade; Let stand five minutes.

    Add 1 3/4 cups of the flour, the salt, and oil; process until a soft dough forms. Add as much of the remaining flour, 1/4 cup at a time, as necessary to make the dough manageable.

    Shape the dough in a ball, place in an oiled bowl, turning so an oiled surface is up.

    Cover and let rise in a warm place until double in size, about 35 minutes.

    Use as directed in a recipe or refrigerate for use up to one day later. If refrigerated, bring to room temperature before using.
