  • In a small bowl stir together warm water and yeast. In a large mixing bowl combine 2 cups of the bread flour, the olive oil, salt, and the yeast mixture. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until combined. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Knead in enough flour to make a moderately stiff dough that is smooth and elastic (6 to 8 minutes total). Shape dough into a ball. Place in a lightly greased bowl, turning once to grease dough surface. Cover; let rise in a warm place until double in size (1 to 2 hours). Punch down dough; let rest for 10 minutes before using.
