3 1/4 cups all purpose flour, plus extra for dusting
2 tsp instant or rapid rise yeast
1 tblsp salt
1 tblsp sugar
1 cup warm water
1/4 cup dry white wine, at room temperature
2 tblsp plus 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil

In a large bowl, combine the flour, yeast, salt and sugar, mix well.
Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the warm water, wine and olive oil. Using a wooden spoon, stir the wet ingredients into the dry until the mixture is too stiff to stir, then mix with your hands in the bowl until the dough comes together and pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
Lightly dust a work surface with flour and turn the dough out.
Knead gently, dusting the work surface lightly with more flour as necessary, for 5 minutes or until the dough is smooth, elastic, and only slightly sticky.
Oil a large clean bowl, add the dough, and turn to coat.
Cover the bowl, with plastic wrap or a kitchen towel, set in a warm part of the kitchen, and let the dough rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
Punch down the dough and it's ready to use.
