Instructions

For the Homemade dough

  • In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast and honey in 1/4-cup warm water (100-110 degrees).
  • In a mixer fitted with a dough hook, combine the flour and the salt.
  • Add the oil, yeast mixture, and the remaining 3/4 C water, mix on low speed until dough comes cleanly away from the sides of the bowl and clusters around the dough hook, about 5 minutes.
  • If the dough is still sticky, then add a bit more flour until it pulls cleanly away from the hook.
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead by hand 2 or 3 minutes.
  • The dough should be smooth and firm. Place in lightly oiled bowl an cover with plastic wrap.
  • Let sit for about 30-45 minutes. (When ready, the dough will stretch as it is lightly pulled).
  • Take dough out of bowl and cut in half
  • Work each ball by pulling down the sides and tucking under the bottom of the ball. Repeat 4 or 5 times.
  • Cover the dough with loosely fitted plastic wrap and let rest 15 to 20 minutes.
  • At this point, the balls can be used or wrapped in plastic and refrigerated for up to 2 days.
