In a large bowl, dissolve yeast thoroughly in water and oil. Add the flour slowly while mixing. Add salt at the same time and blend together well. On a floured working surface, knead dough for 10 minutes until it is smooth and elastic.
Roll the dough into a ball, place in a greased bowl, cover with a damp cloth and place in a warm area for 90 minutes. When the dough has risen to about double its bulk, punch it down and roll into a ball. Divide the ball into four equal pieces, roll them into balls and cover with a damp cloth until ready to use.
