A simple recipe that you will make over and over again!
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons quick rising yeast
  • toppings of your choice – olives, jalapenos, cheese
  1. Place ingredients into a bowl starting with the dry ingredients. Making a well combine the wet ingredients and stir to combine. I use my hands with oil on them so the dough doesn't stick to them.
  2. Dough will be quite sticky and wet once combined, resist the temptation to add more flour. Knead dough for 5-10 minutes so it has a fluffy consistency.
  3. Place dough on a lightly floured board, cover with a large bowl, and let rest for 15 minutes. Or I place it in my oven with the light on, the temperature is perfect for rising bread.
  4. Lightly flour or use parchment lined baking sheets. Divide dough into 2 pieces, and form each into a 3×14 inch oval. Place loaves on prepared sheets and lightly flour. Cover, and let rise in a draft free place for approximately 45 minutes, once again the oven with the light on is amazing for this!
  5. Preheat oven to 425°F (if bread is in the oven rising be sure to remove it first), rack should be in center of the oven.
  6. While oven is heating top with your favorite toppings, I love cheese, olives, and jalapenos! Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. During baking, for a crisper loaf put a bowl of water on the bottom rack.

This is what my bread looks like before I put it on the oven, be careful not to overuse topping as the top will cave in.
