2½ ts (1 envelope) dry yeast ½ ts sugar
¾ c lukewarm water
2 c all-purpose flour
1 ts salt
3 TB olive oil
Mix the yeast, sugar, ½ cup water and ¼ cup flour together in a bowl and let proof for 10 minutes. Mixture should look frothy. Add remaining flour, salt and olive oil and mix well. Turn out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead for 8-10 minutes or until dough is elastic and smooth. Alternately you can do this with the dough hook in a heavy duty mixer. Dough should feel moist and tender.
If it's too stiff, add a bit more water.
Place dough in an oiled bowl and turn to coat it evenly. Cover and let rise in a warm spot in kitchen (at least 75 degrees) for 1-2 hours.
