I had to post this dough recipe separate because it's now my favorite dough. Use for all your pies and pizza's.
- 1 (7 g) packet dry active yeast
- 1⁄4 cup warm water
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 3 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 cup extra virgin olive oil, plus
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1 egg
- 1 1⁄4 cups warm milk
- Dissolve the sugar in the ¼ cup water. Sprinkle the yeast over the water and let ferment and bubble.
- In a large bowl combine the yeast, flour, salt, olive oil, egg, and warm milk. Knead until a soft dough is formed. Dough will be slightly sticky, so always make sure your hands have a little olive oil on them.
- Lightly grease the same bowl with olive oil. Return the dough to the bowl, cover with a clean cloth and leave in a warm dry place for at least 2 hours, until doubled.
This really is the best dough recipe I have come across, and the only one I plan to use for now on. It is very simple to make, even for a hopeless bread maker like myself! The dough turns out soft and delicious. It will make all your favorite recipes which require dough even better.
6 stars! Said to be soft and delicious. I'm gluten free so I couldn't try it but MIL, my own mother, sister and DD1 (4 years old) said the spinach fatayer I made with this was delicious. I agree with UmmIbrahim this is fool proof dough. Next time I will put it in a very, very low oven 78F max to rise the whole time. I rose it for 2 hours part of that time in the oven and the other part in a warm kitchen. It was a gift for MIL which she had fresh warm from the oven :) I added sea salt, to taste (probably about the same amount called for) & diluted Carnation evaporated milk as that was the only dairy milk I had on hand, plus the rest of the ingredients. Now I wan't to make a ton of different items with this dough. I will most definitely use this recipe again. Made for Let's go to Jordan & Kuwait this August 2012! For Jordan.
