Olga bread just like from the restaurants. I found it on another site but it was so good I had to share it.

I haven't made the bread yet, but I used to work at olga's....the dough came premade and already in frozen dough balls. we would tray the doughballs and they would rise. as they rose, they dried out a little, and then they were rolled, and then immediately cooked. instead of rising in one big portion, it might help to portion them out before rising. since they dried out a little, they were less sticky and didn't stick to the rollers. also, when they rose, they became nice and round, and gave it the nice equilateral circle shape. good luck! can't wait to try the recipe!
