  • Combine all ingredients in the bowl of a stand mixer. Mix on low with the dough hook for 2 minutes. Then increase speed to medium/low speed for 6 minutes
  • Remove the dough and lightly grease the bowl. Place the dough back into the bowl, cover with a kitchen towel and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • Remove the dough and divide into 10 equal pieces and reshape into small round balls. Lightly dust the dough balls with flour and transfer to a rimmed baking sheet. Cover with a kitchen towel and let stand for 20 minutes.
  • Heat a cast iron skillet or another non-stick skillet over medium heat with olive oil.
  • Roll out one of the dough balls using a rolling pin to a 7-8 inch circle and carefully transfer it to the skillet.
  • Cook for 2 minutes or until the top surface is covered with bubbles, then flip and cook until the dough is lightly golden on the bottom, about 2 more minutes.
  • Remove from pan and cover with a kitchen towel to keep warm while repeating with the rest of the dough. Serve with your favorite toppings or fillings.
