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.
