1 cup warm water
Pour the warm water into a bowl. Sprinkle the yeast over it and let stand until the yeast dissolves and gets a little foamy - about 5 minutes. Whisk the olive oil in with a pinch of salt. Using a wooden spoon beat in the flour 1/2 cup at a time until a soft and sticky dough forms - may not need all the flour. Turn dough onto floured work surface and knead until smooth - 8 to 10 minutes.
Brush a large bowl with olive oil. Divide the dough into two balls and transfer to the bowl. Cover with a clean kitchen towl and let rise in a warm place until doubled - about 2.5 hours.
Gently separate the balls. and gently press out the air - do not pack the dough.
