1 Tablespoon(s) Dry yeast
1/2 Cup(s) Warm Water
1 Teaspoon(s) Salt
2 Tablespoon(s) Vegetable oil
1/4 Teaspoon(s) Sugar
3 Cup(s) White flour
In a medium sized bowl, warmed, dissolve yeast in water & add salt,
oil & sugar. Stir together. With a slotted spoon, beat in 1 3/4 c
flour. Combine 1/2 c flour with the other ingredients. Set side in a
warm area for 15 to 20 minutes. Flour a board with the rest of the
flour & turn out the dough. Knead till it is no longer sticky.
Flatten it with the palms of your hands. Fold in half & in half again.
Roll until it is 10 1/2 inches long. Sprinkle cornmeal on a cookie
sheet & set the dough. Use a brush to oil the surface. Slash the top
of the dough with a sharp knife & allow to proof for 30 minutes or so.
Preheat oven to 375F & bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven & spread
the surface with water, using a brush. Continue to bake for 30 to 35
minutes. From Gemini's MASSIVE MealMaster collection at
