1 package (1/4 oz.) dry yeast
4 c. all-purpose flour
1/4 c. sugar
1 T. salt
1 t. oil
1 egg, beaten
additional vegetable oil
In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in 1/2 c. warm water, and let it sit for 20 minutes.
In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, and salt.
Add yeast, oil, and egg to dry ingredients, and mix.
Gradually add warm water to the dough.
Turn onto a floured surface and knead until dough becomes soft and elastic.
Apply oil to your hands, and make a sphere out of the dough.
Place dough into a large bowl, cover with a towel, and let rise for 1 hour.
In the bowl, continue to knead the dough to get rid of an excess air.
Place dough on oiled baking pan, cover, and let rise for 40 minutes.
Preheat oven to 250 F.
Bake for 1 hour, or until golden brown.
