This recipe takes less than two hours from start to ready to eat which includes rising time and baking time.
You will need:
3 cups flour (I use 1/2 all purpose and 1/2 cups whole grain flour)
2 teaspoons yeast
1 cup warm water
1 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon sugar
2 Tablespoons olive oil or melted butter
a greased 9 inch round cake pan (a 9x9 inch square pan works too just divide dough into 9 rather than 8 balls)
Add dry ingredients to your mixing bowl and mix. Next add water and oil. Now it is time to knead. I prefer to use my stand mixer for this but you can use a bread maker or even knead by hand. In my stand mixer I knead the dough about 8 minutes. Remember, if you are using whole grain flour, this type of flour takes longer to adsorb water. Do not decide you need to add water until after at least four minutes of kneading.
If your dough seems dry and does not come together into a ball, add water a teaspoon at a time. If your dough seems super sticky, add flour a Tablespoon at a time. You want a firm ball of dough that is somewhat sticky.
After kneading put your dough onto a heavily floured surface and generously flour your hands.
Divide the dough in half, then divide each half in half. Then one more time divide each quarter into half until you have eight fairly equal sized pieces. Roll each piece into a ball and place into a greased round cake pan, seven around the edge and one in the center. If you are using a square pan make 9 balls and line them up in 3 rows of 3.
Spritz the top of your dough with olive oil and over the pan with plastic wrap. The oil keeps the plastic wrap from sticking. Leave the pan on your counter for 40 minutes to an hour or so to rise.
Once you have lovely risen dough, remove the plastic wrap and bake for 25 minutes in a 375 degree oven. Remove from pan immediately to a drying rack and serve warm. Yummy!
