    In large bowl, mix 1 cup of the flour, the sugar, salt and yeast. In 1-quart saucepan, heat water and vegetable oil until very warm (120°F to 130°F). Add warm liquid and egg to flour mixture; beat with electric mixer on low speed until moistened, scraping bowl frequently. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl frequently. With spoon, stir in 1 3/4 cups of the flour until dough pulls cleanly away from side of bowl.

    On floured work surface, knead in remaining 3/4 cup flour until dough is smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Shape dough into ball; cover with large bowl. Let rest 5 minutes.

    Grease cookie sheet with shortening or cooking spray. Place dough on cookie sheet. With rolling pin or hands, roll or press dough into 12-inch round. Cover loosely with greased plastic wrap and cloth towel; let rise in warm place (80°F to 85°F) about 30 minutes or until light and doubled in size.

    Heat oven to 400°F. Uncover dough. With fingers or handle of wooden spoon, poke holes in dough at 1 inch intervals. Drizzle olive oil over top of dough; sprinkle evenly with rosemary.

Expert Tips

  • Make two smaller loaves by using two cookie sheets and dividing the dough in half. Roll or press each half into an 8-inch round and continue as directed in the recipe. Bake 10 to 20 minutes.
