- 1 package (2 1/4 teaspoons) of active dry yeast
- 1 cup warm water (105 F to 110 F)
- 1 tablespoon sugar (vegan-friendly)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 cups all-purpose flour (plus more as needed)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the yeast, warm water, and sugar, mixing gently until combined. Let the mixture rest for about 5 minutes or until bubbly.
- Add the olive oil, flour, and salt, adding more flour as necessary until it forms a soft dough. The dough should pull away from the sides of the bowl and feel just a little sticky.
- Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for 5 to 7 minutes or until elastic.
- Place the dough in a well-oiled bowl, cover, and let sit in a warm place for about 1 hour or until the dough has doubled in bulk.
- Once the dough has doubled in bulk, punch down the dough and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead the dough for several minutes until smooth and elastic.
- Use the dough immediately or wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate or freeze until ready.
Tips for Perfect Dough
- If your yeast does not bubble when combined with water and sugar, you may have “dead” yeast. Or the water is too hot.
- For a healthier option, substitute whole wheat flour for the all-purpose flour.
