1 Envelope Yeast
1 cup warm water
1 tsp sugar
3 cups flour
2 tsp. salt
3 Tbsp. Olive oil
STEP #1 : Dissolve yeast in warm water and sugar, about 5 minutes.
STEP #2: mix in salt and slowly add flour, then oil.
Step #3: Knead dough for 5-8 minutes, folding in halves. If you are careful not to 'break' the dough, but fold it over and over it will rise higher and lighter.
STEP #4: Let dough rest for about 20 minutes.
STEP #5: remove the ball of dough and press into a rectangle on a cookie sheet or baking stone. Let rise for 20 more minutes.
STEP #6: Press your finger to indent the dough in rows up and down the loaf. Drizzle olive oil, garlic, onion salt, etc. across the bread.
STEP #7: Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool. Slice the loaf in half down the middle and then into 1-2 inch wide sticks.
* They are great dipped in olive oil and Balsamic Vinegar~!
