Ingredients

  • 5 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 tbsp Salt
  • 2 tbsp Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Olive Oil
  • 2 cups Water, lukewarm
  • 1 packet Fast Rising Yeast about 2-3 tsp
  • 2 tbsp Dried Milk Powder optional, does add extra fluffiness to the dough however

Instructions

  • This recipe can either be done by hand or using the dough handle for the Kitchenaid.
  • First, mix together in the desired bowl the yeast, sugar, salt, milk powder, lukewarm water, and 2 cups flour until well combined.
  • Cover with a towel and allow this to rest for 15 minutes.
  • Then, add the olive oil and the remaining 3 cups of flour to the dough. It may be easier to do so one cup at a time. Use either dough hook or hands to bring this together.
  • If the dough is too sticky at this point, add a pinch of flour to work with it.
  • Shape it like a big ball and cover it with a towel for 1 hour.
  • Divide it into smaller balls (around 25) for meat, spinach, za'atar, and cheese pies and rest for another 45 minutes covered with a towel preferably in a warm area. If using for pizza dough, just divide dough in half for 2 large pies.
  • When ready to bake the desired pie, place in a 350 F oven for about 20 minutes for the savory pies and around 25-30 minutes for a large pizza. Keep an eye on it after 20 minutes.
