  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 3 1/2 cups unbleached flour, plus more for kneading
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon oil


  • 1 Dissolve the yeast and sugar in 1/4c. of warm water.
  • 2 Sift together 2 1/2c. of the flour, and the 1/2 teaspoon of salt in a large mixing bowl.
  • 3 Form a well in the center of the flour/salt mixture, and pour in dissolved yeast, and the remaining 1c. of water.
  • 4 Mix, adding the remaining 1c. of flour as needed, until the dough leaves the side of the bowl.
  • 5 Dust your clean countertop lightly with flour, and knead for 10 - 15 minutes. Form a ball.

  • 9 Preheat the oven to 475f., and let them rise for 25 minutes Bake on a cookie sheet for 6 - 10 mins., and when they have cooled for 1 minute, stack them on top of eachother to cool completely.
