- Sprinkle the yeast into a medium bowl containing 1 1/4 cup warm water and stir until yeast dissolves.
- 2 Add 2 cups sifted flour and stir until blended.
- 3 Add another 1 1/2 to 2 cups flour and blend until too stiff to stir with a spoon.
- 6 Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and put it in a warm place for about 45 minutes--until the dough rises to about double its original size.
- 7 Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F.
