  • 4 tsp olive oil, divided 20 mL
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour 375 mL

Directions

  • Step 1

    Add the sugar to 1/2 cup (125 mL) warm water, stirring to dissolve.

  • Step 2

    Add the yeast, stir to blend and let sit for 5 minutes or until frothy, then add oil.

    Measure flour, salt and ground flax seed in a large bowl, stir to blend, then add sugar, water and yeast mixture; stir to make soft, slightly sticky dough.

  • Step 4

    Knead until elastic and very smooth.

  • Step 5
