Dipping Bread

This is the best bread ever. It's very similar to a certain Italian chain restaurant's famous bread but according to Gray it's better than theirs! I found the recipe over at In Katrina's Kitchen. It's also crazy easy to make and taste like you worked forever on it when really most of the time it's sitting the kitchen while you are doing other things!

1 tbsp active dry yeast (or one packet)
1 tbsp sugar
1 Cup warm water (105°-115°F)
2 1/2 cups flour (separated)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp dried Italian seasoning
2 tbso olive oil
Sea salt

Place sugar, water and yeast in a bowl. Let it sit for 8 to 10 minutes until foamy. Add 2 cups of flour, salt and Italian seasoning. Mix with a dough hook attachment or by hand adding flour as needed for around 10 minutes. Place in a greased bowl and cover with a towel. Let rise for an hour. Punch down and let sit for 5 minutes. Punch down again and divide into 4 pieces, shape and place on a greased sheet pan, brush with olive oil and let rise for 25 more minutes. Sprinkle with sea salt and bake at 400 for 12-16 minutes. Once out of the oven brush again with remaining olive oil.
