Ingredients

  • 5 1/2 cup warm water (about 110 degrees f)
  • 1 cup (1/4-ounce) package active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 3 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup semolina flour
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil, plus extra for bowl
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Preparation

    Baking Directions:

    1.

    In a large bowl, combine the water, yeast, and sugar and stir to combine.

    Let sit until the mixture is foamy, about 5 minutes.

    2. Add 1 1/2 cups of the flour, the semolina, 1/2 cup of the oil, and the salt, mixing by hand until it is all incorporated and the mixture is smooth.

    Continue adding the remaining 2 cups flour, 1/4 cup at a time, working the dough after each addition, until all the flour is incorporated but the dough is still slightly sticky.

    Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth but still slightly tacky, about 5 minutes.

    Oil a large mixing bowl with enough oil to generously coat.

    Place the dough in the bowl and turn to oil all sides.

    Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and set in a warm, draft-free place until nearly doubled in size, 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

    Divide into 2 equal portions and use as directed.
