Ingredients

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1-1/2 cups warm water (110° to 115°), divided
  • 4 teaspoons sugar
  • 4 teaspoons plus 2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil, divided
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3-1/2 to 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • Salt and coarsely ground pepper to taste

Directions

In a mixing bowl, dissolve the yeast in 1/2 cup warm water. Add sugar; let stand for 5 minutes. Add 4 teaspoons of oil, salt, remaining water and enough flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch dough down. Brush a 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan with 1 tablespoon oil. Press dough into pan. Brush with the remaining oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cut in squares; serve warm, or at room temperature. Yield: 16-20 servings.

"My family loves this. It makes a very thick, light foccacia-like bread. I top it with pizza sauce and spices for a hearty meal."
