In the spirit of blogging, I thought I would share some favorite recipes. Please don’t judge my messy kitchen counter 🙂
1 cup water
2 3/4 cups flour
2 teaspoons yeast (I recommend Fleishmann’s Rapid Rise Highly Active Yeast)
In a mixing bowl, stir two teaspoons of yeast in 1 cup of warm water and stir in 1 cup of flour. Cover with a cloth and let it rest for 15 minutes in a dry place (I use the microwave). The mixture will bubble and look like the above picture.
Once the mixture has rested, stir in 1 and 3/4 cups of flour, 1 1/4 teaspoons of salt and 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
After it rises for 1 1/2 hours, flatten dough, pierce with a fork and spread olive oil over it. Sprinkle liberally with salt.
