  • 1 1/2 cup warm water (110F)
  • 3 teaspoons instant yeast
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 1/2 cup flour (1 cup White Whole Wheat flour, 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour)


  • In a mixing bowl, add warm water, yeast, and sugar.  Stir to combine.  
  • Set aside for 10 minutes to let the yeast proof.  If it foams, it is ready to go, but you may want to start again if you see little activity.  
  • Next, add oil, about 3/4 of the flour, and salt.  Stir to combine.  
  • Add in the rest of the flour and knead for about 5 minutes with a machine or 10 minutes by hand.  The dough should be slightly sticky but manageable as you knead.  If the dough is too sticky, add a little flour a tablespoon at a time.  
  • Place dough in a greased bowl, cover with saran wrap, and let it rest in a warm place for about 1 hour.  
  • Remove dough from bowl to a floured baking area.  
  • Then divide the dough into 32 pieces.  
  • Shape each piece into a roll and place on a baking tray.  
  • Use 13 rolls for the inner circle and the rest for the outer ring.  The rolls should be touching.  
  • Cover with saran wrap and let sit for 30 minutes.  
  • Preheat the oven to 400F and place a pan with warm water on the bottom rack. 
  • Remove saran wrap from the rolls, brush each roll with olive oil, and sprinkle with flaky salt.
  • Bake for 18-20 minutes, until the rolls are golden brown.
