  • 2 1/4 teaspoons instant yeast (1 packet)
  • 2 cups lukewarm water
  • 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided


  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the yeast and water. Add half the flour and stir with a wooden spoon. Add the salt and remaining flour and stir until combined.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  • Brush 2 tablespoons olive oil over the bottom of a 10 or 12-inch cast iron skillet.
  • Sprinkle the dough and your hands with flour before shaping it into a disk. The dough will be sticky, it doesn’t have to shape perfectly. Place it in the skillet, cover loosely with oil sprayed plastic wrap, let rise until puffy, about 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Drizzle additional olive oil over the top of the bread.
  • Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Let cool slightly before slicing. (this never happens in my house, so the first piece was squished a little)
