- 1½ cups warm water
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 (1/4-ounce) package active dry yeast
- 3¼- 3½ cups King Arthur All-Purpose Flour
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 8 ounces Cabot Sharp Cheddar, grated
- In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the mixer, combine warm water and sugar, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Sprinkle yeast on top and let stand until yeast is dissolved and foamy, about 10 minutes.
- Add 31/4 cups of flour, oil, and salt; knead mixture on medium speed for 5 minutes until smooth and elastic with the dough hook, adding more flour as needed if dough doesn't clean side of bowl (dough will still be sticky).
- Add cheese and knead for about 1 minute longer until well mixed in.
- (Alternatively, make dough in food processor, kneading in cheese by hand at end, or make entirely by hand, kneading for 8 to 10 minutes.)
- Place dough in oiled bowl, turning to coat, cover with plastic wrap and set aside to rise until doubled in volume, 1 to 2 hours. (If you want to use dough later, refrigerate part of it for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 3 months; bring back to room temperature before shaping and baking.)
- Punch down dough and divide into 4 equal pieces. Press each piece into a 10-inch round. Brush top of each round with olive oil.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place rounds oiled-side-down on baking sheet and bake for 5-6 minutes, turn over with a metal spatula or tongs, bake for another 2-3 minutes and cooked through to the center.
- Remove to cutting board. cut into triangles, dip in your favorite olive oil with fresh herbs. Or use a base for a single serve pizza.
