  1. Take a medium bowl,combine 1 tbsp of active dry yeast with 1 1/2 cup of warm but not hot water. Add 1 tsp of sugar and stir well. Put it aside for 5-10 minutes until yeast is completely dissolved.
  2. Add 3 1/2 cup of all- purpose flour, 1 tbsp of salt, 3 tbsp of olive oil. Mix well.

  4. Form 2 balls, coat them with olive oil and transfer in bowls. Cover with plastic and let it rise for a few hours. Keep in mind that dough will rise in the warm environment only ( 27 C or 80 F).
