  • 3/4 cup warm water (110 degrees)
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for bowl
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt


  1. Pour warm water into a medium bowl; sprinkle with yeast. Let stand until foamy, about 5 minutes.

  2. Whisk sugar and oil into yeast mixture, then stir in 1 cup flour and salt until combined. Stir in remaining 1 cup flour until a dough forms around spoon. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 3 minutes.

  3. Brush a large bowl with oil. Transfer dough to bowl, turning to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm spot until doubled in bulk, 45 minutes to 1 hour.
