I am always looking for easy and quick solutions that still taste like real food. This recipe is one of my very favorite. I’ve used it for a take on french bread, pizza rolls, pizza dough, cinnamon rolls and much more. Its so quick and easy to mix up when needed or even freeze for later.
If you have a good bosch or kitchen aid this is a piece of cake mixed up in five minutes. If not I started making this before I got my bosch and was able to make it by hand without hours of kneading it out.
Start with warm water and yeast mixed together. Add your sugar salt and olive/vegetable oil mix well. Gradually add your flour until pulling away from the bowl or minimal stickiness to the touch.
My favorite trick is to use vegetable spray on counters, rolling pin, and hands for rolling out the dough.
If you want to make something like french bread let it rise, roll it out, put it in the pan and let it rise again before cooking. For pizza no need to let it rise just roll it out and make your pizza. I ALWAYS give it time to rise for cinnamon rolls. I like them falling apart and melting in my mouth.
Don’t forget to show off your pictures of ways that you try out the dough and any bread tips or tricks you have.
