Ingredients

  • 1

    cup warm (110 degrees F) water

  • 1

    (¼-ounce) envelope active dry yeast

  • 1

    teaspoon sugar

  • 1

    tablespoon plus 1½ teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 3

    cups bleached all-purpose flour

  • 1

    teaspoon salt

Directions

In a large bowl, combine the water, yeast, sugar, and 1 tablespoon oil and stir to combine. Let sit until the mixture is foamy, about 5 minutes. Add 1 1/2 cups of the flour and the salt, mixing by hand until it is all incorporated and the mixture is smooth. Continue adding the flour, 1/4 cup at a time, working the dough after each addition, until all the flour is incorporated but the dough is still slightly sticky. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth but still slightly tacky, 3 to 5 minutes. Oil a large mixing bowl with the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil. Place the dough in the bowl and turn to oil all sides. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and set in a warm, draft-free place until nearly doubled in size, 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
