  3. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil and work in the remaining yeast mixture.
  4. Turn dough out onto flat surface and knead 10 minutes until smooth and elastic.
  5. Shape into ball and place in large greased bowl, turning dough to grease top.
  6. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled in bulk, about 45-60 minutes.
