5 3/4 to 6 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 package Fleischmann’s Rapid Rise or Active Dry Yeast
2 cups water
1/4 cup olive or vegetable oil
In large bowl combine 2 cups flour, salt and yeast. In small saucepan heat water and olive oil to 125 to 130° F. Add dry ingredients; beat 2 minutes with electric mixer at medium speed, scraping bowl occasionally. With spoon, stir in enough remaining flour to make soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, 4 to 6 minutes. Cover; let rest 10 minutes (20 minutes for Active Dry Yeast). Divide in half; shape and bake half according to selected recipe. Freeze remaining half.
