5 min      1 min        15 min | PORTION: 1 bread


3/4 cup of warm water
1 1/2 tsp of instant yeast
2 tsp of sugar
1 tsp of salt
2 tbsp of olive oil
2 cups of all-purpose flour

  1. In a bowl, mix all ingredients in the following order until you obtain a ball of dough.
  2. Knead dough until smooth. The dough is going to be really sticky; it will be easier for you if you put some olive oil on your hands.
  3. Put the dough in a buttered pan with a maximal diameter of 16 centimeters – the wider the pan will be, the flatter your loaf will be. Cover the dough with a clean cloth and let it rest for 40 minutes. I preheat my oven for one minute at 350F before turning it off to help my dough rise faster. The warm air in the oven will help the dough rise faster.
  4. Preheat oven to 375
  5. Put the bread in the oven for 20 minutes or until it becomes golden.
  6. Let it rest for a few minutes. And it’s ready to serve!
