Recipe Courtesy North Dakota Wheat Commission
www.ndWheat.com

Ingredients
1 1/2 cups warm water (105-115 degrees)
1 package active dry yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
4 - 4 1/2 cups bread flour
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
2 teaspoons oregano
Optional toppings: fresh or dried herbs such as sage, rosemary and green onions.

Instructions
Combine water, yeast and sugar in large bowl. Let stand 5
minutes. Add 3 cups flour, salt, oregano and 1/4 cup olive
oil. Mix by hand or with a dough hook until the
dough forms into a rough ball.
 

 

Turn dough onto a lightly
floured surface, using additional flour to knead. If using the mixer
with a dough hook, add all but the last 1/2 cup
until certain it is needed. Knead until smooth and elastic, about
5 minutes.

Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl, turning
once to coat. Cover and let rise 1-1 1/2 hours. Punch
down and divide into two or three portions. Cover and let
rest 5 to 15 minutes.

To shape, flatten to desired thickness in
9 x 13 inch rectangles or 8 to 9 inch rounds.
Place on oiled baking pans; cover and let rise 30 minutes.

Dimple
the dough vigorously with finger tips. Cover again and let double
in size (30-60 minutes). Brush surface with olive oil and sprinkle
 

 
with additional toppings if desired. Bake on the lowest rack of
a preheated 450 degree oven for about 15 minutes, or until
bottom is well browned.

Makes 24 servings.

* Two pounds frozen
bread dough may be used. Brush with oil and top with
seasonings.
