  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 ⅓ cups warm water
  • 4 ¾ cups plain flour


Step 1: Prepare the Dough

  1. Combine Ingredients: Add the flour to a large mixing bowl. Pour in the warm water, olive oil, dry yeast, and salt.
  2. Mix and Knead: Mix all the ingredients until they start to come together. Then, knead the dough by hand until it becomes smooth and elastic.

Step 2: Let the Dough Rise

  1. First Rise: Cover the bowl with a clean cloth or plastic wrap and let the dough rise in a warm place for about an hour, or until it has doubled in size.

Step 3: Shape the Dough

  1. Shape into a Cylinder: After the dough has risen, transfer it to a lightly floured work surface. Shape it into a cylinder.
  2. Divide and Form Loaves: Divide the cylinder into three equal parts. Shape each part into a loaf.
  3. Prepare for Baking: Place the loaves on a baking sheet lined with baking paper. Make a few shallow cuts on the top of each loaf and sprinkle with a little flour.

Step 4: Bake the Bread

  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 200°C (392°F).
  2. Bake: Place the baking sheet with the loaves in the oven and bake for about 30 minutes, or until the bread is golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.

Step 5: Cool and Serve

  1. Cool: Remove the bread from the oven and let it cool on a wire rack.
  2. Serve: Slice and serve your delicious homemade bread with your favorite toppings.
