Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 cup warm water 110-115°
  • teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 2⅔ cup unbleached bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil plus more for greasing and drizzling
  • 2 pinches flaky sea salt

Instructions

  • Add honey to a liquid measuring cup. Whisk in warm water (105-110°)and then the yeast. Set off to the side for 5 minutes to allow the yeast to bloom.
  • Meanwhile add bread flour and kosher salt to the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the hook attachment. Stir until combined.
  • Once the yeast mixture is frothy, turn your mixer on low-speed and gradually pour in yeast water. Mix until just incorporated, stopping to scrape down the sides as you go.
  • Add in the olive oil and mix on low-speed for 4 minutes.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to a mixing bowl.
    Shape the dough into a ball. Transfer dough to bowl (with the oil) and toss and coat the dough and inside of the bowl with the oil.
  • Cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and place in a warm spot to rise for 1 hour.
  • Preheat your oven to 425° and grease a 9x13 (or equivalent) nonstick baking pan with a generous amount of olive oil.
  • Transfer dough to greased pan. Use your fingers to press and stretch the dough to fit. Cover with clean kitchen towel and let rise a second time for 30 minutes while your oven preheats.
  • Drizzle with olive oil over top of the risen dough and sprinkle with flaky salt.
  • Once oven has preheated, reduce the heat to 375° and place the pan on the middle rack. Bake for 25 to 28minutes, rotating the pan halfway through baking.
  • Let rest for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool before serving.
