Ingredients

  • ½ cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)

  • 2 ¼ teaspoons active dry yeast

  • 1 teaspoon white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour

Directions

  1. In a large bowl mix together the warm water (110 degrees), yeast, sugar, salt, and olive oil. Stir in 2 cups of the flour in order to make a soft ball. Knead in additional flour so that dough is soft and not sticky. Place kneaded dough in a medium size greased bowl. Cover and let rise until doubled in size.

  2. Punch down dough, and form into ball or loaf shape. Place onto a greased cookie sheet. Cover and let rise for 15 to 20 minutes. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes, until golden brown.
