Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place water in a large bowl. Sprinkle with yeast. Allow to stand until yeast starts to react and "foam," about 5 minutes. Whisk in sugar, oil, salt. Then add flours, stirring w/ a wooden spoon until a sticky dough forms.
  2. Using a second large bowl, coat bowl w/ oilve oil. Transfer dough to new bowl. Brush top of dough w/ oil. Cover bowl w/ plastic wrap.
  3. Allow to stand in a warm place until doubled, approx 1 hour. (I use my warming drawer, set to "proof" temperature.)
  4. Turn risen dough out onto floured surface. With floured hands, knead about 15 seconds. Divide into 2 (one-pound) balls.
  5. IF FREEZING: place two balls, OR four shells on parchment paper, in freezer till firm. Place in freezer bags up to 3 months. Shells may be topped & baked from frozen!
