This recipe came from my nonna who immigrated from Italy at 40 and members of my family have been making it for years. It is the best! I hope you enjoy it. My fiance said I should sell it! Lol!
Original recipe makes 6 servings
1 3/4 cups hot water
3 tablespoons olive oil, or more to taste
2 tablespoons quick-rise yeast
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups all-purpose flour, or as needed
- Beat water, olive oil, yeast, sugar, and salt together with an electric mixer until evenly combined, about 2 minutes. Add flour, 1 cup at a time, stirring with a wooden spoon after each addition, until dough almost comes away from the sides of the bowl.
- Knead the dough with your hands until soft and smooth. Lightly oil a bowl and place dough in the bowl, flipping to coat all of the dough. Let dough rest for 5 to 10 minutes.
