Basic Bread Dough

Total Time:
2 hr 30 min
Prep:
2 hr 30 min
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 3 teaspoons yeast (dry)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 4 cups high gluten flour
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Directions
  • 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 and olive oil and mix, using hands until you can knead the dough without it sticking to your fingers.

  • Wash and dry hands and remove ball to cutting board. Knead the dough, occasionally dusting with 1 teaspoon flour, until a firm, smooth homogenous ball is formed, about 15 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. Dough is now ready for use.
