Apr, 03, 2021
2 packages active dry yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
1 3/4 cups lukewarm water (105-115oF)
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil, plus extra to drizzle on the bread
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
4-5 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
Coarse salt
Dried Rosemary Dissolve the yeast and sugar in 1 cup lukewarm water in a bowl and let sit until foamy. In another bowl, add the remaining 3/4 cup water, olive oil, and salt. Pour in the yeast mixture. Blend in the flour, 1 cup at a time, until t he dough comes together. Knead on a floured board for 10 minutes, adding flour as needed to make it smooth and elastic. Put the dough in an oiled bowl, turn to coat well, and cover with a towel. Let rise in a warm draft-free place for 1 hour, until doubled in size. Punch down the dough, knead it for about 5 minutes, and gently roll it out to fit a deep dish pan, 15 1/2 by 10 1/2 inches. Cover with towel and leave to rise for 15 minutes. Oil your fingers and make impressions in the dough, 1 inch apart. Let rise for 1 hour. Preheat the oven to 400oF. Drizzle the dough with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and rosemary. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until golden brown. Serve warm.
