Ingredients:

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1.5 cups warm water (110°F/43°C)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 egg white (for egg wash)
  • Sesame seeds or nigella seeds for topping (optional)

Instructions:

  1. In a small bowl, combine warm water, sugar, and active dry yeast. Allow the mixture to rest for 5-7 minutes until it becomes frothy, indicating that the yeast is activated.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, sift the all-purpose flour. Add salt and make a well in the center.
  3. Pour the activated yeast mixture into the well, followed by olive oil. Begin incorporating the flour into the wet ingredients, gradually forming a dough.
  4. Knead the dough on a floured surface for 8-10 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic. Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover it with a damp cloth, and let it rise in a warm place for 1-2 hours or until it doubles in size.
  5. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  6. Punch down the risen dough to release any excess air. Divide it into two equal portions.
  7. Roll each portion into a long oval shape, approximately 12 inches in length.
  8. Place the shaped dough onto the prepared baking sheet. If desired, brush the surface with egg white and sprinkle sesame seeds or nigella seeds for a traditional touch.
  9. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-18 minutes or until the bread develops a golden-brown crust and sounds hollow when tapped.
  10. Allow the bread to cool on a wire rack before slicing and serving.
