Directions:
Grease cookie sheet. In large bowl, combine 1 cup flour, sugar, salt and yeast; mix well. In a small saucepan, heat water and oil until very warm (120 to 130 F). Add warm liquid and egg to flour mixture. Beat at low speed until moistened; beat 2 minutes at medium speed. By hand, stir in an additional 1 3/4 cups flour until dough pulls away from side of the bowl. On floured surface, knead in 3/4 c flour until dough is smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Cover with large bowl; let rest 5 minutes.

Place dough on greased cookie sheet. Roll or press to 12 - inch circle. Cover loosely with greased plastic wrap and cloth towel. Let rise in warm place (80 to 85 F) until light and doubled in size, about 30 minutes.

Heat oven to 400 F. Uncover dough. With fingers or handle of wooden spoon, poke holes in dough at 1 inch intervals. Drizzle 3 to 4 tbsp olive oil over top of dough. Sprinkle evenly with rosemary.
Bake at 400 for 17 to 27 min. or until golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet; cool on wire rack.
