2 cups all-purpose white flour
1 package quick-rising yeast
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon sugar
¾ cup water
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
Combine flour, yeast, salt and sugar in a food processor and pulse to mix.
Heat water and oil in a small saucepan or the microwave to between 125 and 130°F. With the processor on, gradually pour the hot liquid through the feed tube. Process until the dough forms a ball. Then process for 1 minute to knead. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest for 10 minutes.
Whole-Wheat Variation: Substitute 1½ cups all-purpose white flour and ⅓ cup whole-wheat flour for the flour in the above recipe. Proceed in the same manner.
Make Ahead Tip: The dough can be made ahead, enclosed in a plastic bag and stored in the refrigerator overnight. Bring to room temperature before using.
