I love pizza, I will top a great artisan bread with anything! So simple and easy, the kids can do it. Makes four 1 pound loaves. Seal in airtight container and will keep for 10-12 days.

2 3/4 cups lukewarm water
1 1/2 tablespoons granulated yeast (2 packets) [+]
1 1/2 tablespoons kosher salt [+]
1 tablespoon sugar [+]
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil [+]
6 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour [+]


1. In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the dough hook attachment, or in a large (5 quart) bowl working with a wooden spoon, mix the yeast, salt, sugar, and olive oil with the water.

2. Mix in the flour until a dough forms, without kneading!  I found this process to be incredibly simple with my stand mixer, but it will certainly come together the old fashioned way.  If you are not using a machine, you may need to wet your hands in order to incorporate the bit of flour.

3. Transfer dough to large (5 quart) bowl or lidded food container. Cover (not airtight), and allow to rest at room temperature until dough rises and collapses (or flattens on top), approximately 2 hours.

4. The dough can be used immediately after the initial rise, though it is easier to handle when cold. Refrigerate in a lidded (not airtight) container and use over the next 12 days.

When you cook, you must cook at high heat around 475 degrees F.
