½ cup water

1 ½ tsp olive oil

1 ½ cup all purpose flour

½ tsp salt

Directions

1. In small saucepan, heat water with oil until at 120 degrees F (50 degrees C).

4. Turn out dough onto lightly floured surface; knead for about 8 minutes or until smooth and elastic.

5. Place in greased bowl, turning to grease all over.

6. Cover with plastic wrap; let rise in warm draft-free place until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.

8. Roll out into 12-inch (30 cm) circle, letting dough rest, covered, if too elastic to roll.
