- 2 1/4 teaspoons instant yeast (about 1 pouch)
- 2 teaspoons of sea salt
- 2 cups very hot water (about 120 ° F / 48 ° C)
- 2 teaspoons of maple syrup, agave or granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon of olive oil or any oil
From there, you will simply whisk the dry ingredients in a very large bowl and create a well in the center to add the lukewarm water, maple syrup, and oil. Then mix the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients to form a shaggy but well mixed dough.
