1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons yeast (depending on weather)
3 1/4 cup of flour

Heat oven to 500 degrees.

Combine olive oil and water in large bowl. Mix in salt and yeast. Slowly add flour and mix until dough ball forms.

Divide into fourths. Roll out round balls and allow dough to set. It will take about 30 minutes to an hour depending on the weather.

Flatten dough balls in to puccia shape, however be careful not to flatten too much or it will not rise during baking. Drizzle a few drops of olive oil on top of flattened dough and spread with fingertips.

Put bread on sheet pan in pre-heated oven. Cook approximately 10 minutes or until bread puffs up and has nice coloring. For best results, use a wood-burning oven!
