3 1/2 to 4 cups All Purpose Flour ( start with 3 1/2 cups of flour, if your dough is really too sticky, add the remaining 1/2 cup of flour)
1-1/2 cups of Warm Water
1-1/2 tsp of Yeast
1 tsp of Sugar
2 tsp of Salt

Add the sugar and yeast in a small bowl with the warm water and set aside to proof for about 5 minutes.
Step 2: Adding
In the bowl add the flour and salt along with the yeast mixture.

Knead for about 6 to 7 minutes or until you have a smooth and somewhat creamy looking dough. (dough will be extremely sticky at this point but it’s supposed to be)

Oil a large bowl with some vegetable oil and place the dough in the bowl, cover with plastic wrap and place it somewhere warm to rise for about an hour or until doubled in size.

Dump dough on a floured surface and cut into 3 equal pieces, roll each piece into a 12 inch rope and place them on a pan.
Step 6: Second Ascending
Cover with a towel and let them rise until doubled, about an hour.
Step 7: Ignition
Preheat the oven to 475 degrees, place a cast iron skillet on the bottom rack in the oven.
