  • In a small bowl add the water and sugar together. Stir until dissolved. Add yeast. Stir. Let yeast activate to a bloom, about 10 mins.
  • In a larger bowl add flour, salt and garlic powder. When the yeast mixture has bloomed, add the yogurt, oil and bloomed yeast to the flour mixture. Mix until ingredients come together.
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. (for mixture instructions see Tips above)
  • Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled, about 1-2 hours.
  • Divide the dough into 16 equal portions and form into balls. Keep dough covered until you are ready to roll out.
