1/2 tbsp dry active yeast
1/2 tbsp sugar
150 ml warm water
25 ml corn oil
1 tsp salt
240 g bread flour

1 tsp bread softener **


1. Mix yeast, warm water and sugar and set aside until foamy for 5minutes. Add in the oil and salt and 1/2 of the flour into the mixer then gradually add in the remaining flour until a soft dough is formed.

2. Continue mixing until dough is elastic and smooth. Smear oil all over the surface and let rise until it double the size for about 1 hour.
3. Punch down the dough and using the tips of your finger, make some indents on the dough and sprinkle the top of your dough with the topping of your choice; it can be herbs, cheese, chicken, meat, even fruits.
I topped mine with rosemary herbs, garlic, onion, salt and tomatoes.
4. Bake in a preheated oven of 180° for 15 minutes. Let the bread cool off a little bit before cutting into smaller pieces.
