 Ingredients List

  • 4 c Unbleached flour
  • 2/3 Fresh cake yeast dissolved
  • -in 2/3 cup warm water
  • 10 tb Olive oil
  • 1/3 c Water
  • 2 1/2 ts Salt


Mix 2 cups flour with the dissolved yeast. Knead the dough for 10 minutes,
either by hand or in the bowl of an electric mixture with a dough hook.
Shape the dough into a ball, and put in an oiled bowl to rise until doubled
in bulk, about 3 hours.

Punch down, put the dough on a floured board, and knead again,
incorporating the remaining flour, 1/3 cup olive oil, water, and salt.
Knead until dough is smooth and elastic. Let rise again in a covered bowl
for another 3 hours.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Divide the dough in half and roll out on a well-floured board to circles or
squares 1/2 inch thick. Brush with the remaining olive oil and press the
topping of your choice into the top of each circle. Bake on a baking sheet
until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature,
cut into wedges, squares, or triangles.

NOTE: Slashes may be made in a decorative or random pattern in the breads
before baking.
