* PLUS Standing Time: 30 minutes


  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 3/4 cup lukewarm water
  • 1 tbsp or 1 pkg traditional yeast
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil


  • In a small dish, stir honey with 1/2 cup (125 mL) lukewarm water. Sprinkle with yeast, but do not stir. Let stand until foamy, 5 to 8 minutes. Place flour and salt in bowl of a food processor. With machine running, pour in yeast mixture, then oil and remaining 1/4 cup (50 mL) lukewarm water. Whirl, stopping and scraping down sides of bowl occasionally. If dough is too thick, continue whirling and gradually add more water, a tablespoon (15 mL) at a time, until dough cleans sides of bowl and forms a ball. If it becomes too sticky, gradually sprinkle in an additional tablespoon (15 mL) flour through feed tube while machine is running.
  • Form dough into a ball. Place on counter or a cutting board lightly dusted with flour. Flatten into a disc. Loosely cover with plastic wrap. Leave on counter at room temperature to allow dough to increase in size by about one-quarter, 25 to 30 minutes.
