4 cups All-Purpose Flour (1 lb)
1 tablespoon Sugar
1 teaspoon Salt
1 tablespoon Active Dry Yeast
1.5 cups Warm Water (0.36 L)
2 tablespoons Olive Oil
Activate the Yeast:
In a bowl, mix warm water and sugar. Sprinkle yeast over the mixture and let it sit for 5-10 minutes until frothy.
Prepare the Dough:
In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Add the activated yeast mixture and olive oil. Knead until a smooth, elastic dough forms.
Rise to Success:
Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover with a damp cloth, and let it rise for 1-2 hours or until doubled in size.
Divide and Conquer:
Preheat your oven to 475°F (245°C). Divide the dough into golf ball-sized portions and roll each into a ball.
Roll and Bake:
Roll out each ball into a flat, round disc. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 5-7 minutes or until puffed and golden.
