Calories 70 kcal

Equipment

  • Food processor or dough hook (or it can be done by hand)

Ingredients
  

  • 1 1/3 cup water
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp cornmeal
  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup bread flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 174 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 3/8 tsp msg
  • 1 1/2 tsp dry yeast (add 174 tsp more for breadier dough)

Instructions
 

If Using a Food Processor

  • Place the water, sugar, salt, and olive oil in the bowl of the food processor and pulse to dissolve the sugar and salt. Add yeast, bread flour, all-purpose flour, and all of the other dry ingredients. Process until a soft ball forms. Remove the dough from the machine and allow it to rest covered with a tea towel for about 45 minutes.

If Using a Dough Hook and Mixer

  • Place the water, sugar, salt, and olive oil in the bowl of the mixer and dissolve the sugar and salt. Stir in the yeast, bread flour, all-purpose flour, and all of the other dry ingredients. Knead with the dough hook to form a soft, but not-too sticky dough (about 8 minutes). Remove the dough from the machine and allow it to rest covered with a tea towel for about 45 minutes.

If Preparing by Hand

  • Place the water, sugar, salt, and olive oil in a bowl and dissolve the sugar and salt. Stir in the yeast, all-purpose flour, and all of the other dry ingredients. Knead to form a soft, but not-too sticky dough (about 8-l0 minutes). Allow the dough to rest, covered with a tea towel for about 45 minutes.

Notes

  • It may take longer than 10 minutes to knead the dough, especially if you're doing it by hand. The important thing to remember is that the semi-sticky consistency of the dough is what you're aiming for.
