Ingredients

  • 1

    (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast

  • 1

    pound all-purpose flour, or as needed -

  • divided

  • 1

    cup warm water (105 degrees F/41

  • degrees C)

  • 1

    large egg

  • 3

    tablespoons butter, melted

  • 3

    tablespoons white sugar

  • teaspoons salt

  • 1

    teaspoon olive oil

  • 1

    egg, beaten

  • 1

    tablespoon milk

  • 1

    teaspoon sesame seeds, or as needed

Directions

Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper. 2. Place yeast into bowl of a large stand mixer; whisk in 1/2 cup flour and warm water until smooth. Let stand until mixture is foamy, 10 to 15 minutes. 3. Whisk 1 egg, melted butter, sugar, and salt thoroughly into yeast mixture. Add remaining flour (about 3 cups). 4. Fit a dough hook onto stand mixer and knead the dough on low speed until soft and sticky, 5 to 6 minutes. Scrape sides if needed. Poke and prod the dough with a silicone spatula; if large amounts of dough stick to the spatula, add a little more flour. 5. Transfer dough onto a floured work surface; dough will be sticky and elastic but not stick to your fingers. Form the dough lightly into a smooth, round shape, gently tucking loose ends underneath. 6. Wipe out stand mixer bowl, drizzle olive oil into the bowl, and turn dough over in the bowl several times to coat surface thinly with oil. Cover bowl with aluminum foil. Let dough rise in a warm place until doubled, about 2 hours. 7. Transfer dough to a floured work surface and pat to flatten bubbles and form into a slightly rounded rectangle of dough about 5x10 inches and about 1/2 inch thick. Dust dough lightly with flour if needed. Cut dough into 8 equal pieces. Form each piece into a round shape, gently tucking ends underneath as before.
