Dough in Oiled bowl


Cover with a damp towel. Put dough in a warm spot and allow to rise for about an hour. Dough should be doubled in size.

* I use the proof setting in my oven. If you do not have a proof setting in your oven you can turn oven on to 200 degrees Fahrenheit for 3 minutes then turn off and place the dough in the oven to rise. In warmer weather, you can leave the bowl on the counter to rise

Cover dough


Spread dough on greased baking sheet.
