Measure out your flour, water, salt, yeast, and oil. Add the water, oil, and yeast to the bowl of the stand mixer and let the yeast bloom, approximately 5 minutes.

Add the salt and the flour, and mix on the lowest speed of the stand mixer for 1 – 2 minutes until dough is combined.

Turn the mixer up to medium speed and mix for 12 minutes.

Transfer the dough to a large clean bowl with and spread a small amount of oil in the bowl to prevent the dough from cooking. Cover the dough with plastic wrap.

Let the dough rise for 2 hours, until roughly doubled in size. Punch the dough down and divide it into two pieces. Round each piece of dough into a ball, and let rest another 30 minutes, covered with a clean cloth for using. If not using immediately, transfer the dough to the fridge and remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before using.
