Ingredients
  

  • 1 ¼ cup all purpose flour plus more to knead
  • ¾ cup white whole wheat flour
  • up to ½ cup flaxseed meal optional
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup dairy free milk of choice warm
  • 2 tablespoons sugar, maple syrup, or honey
  • 2 ¼ teaspoon active dry yeast or 1 packet

garlic topping

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter/vegan butter/olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon italian seasoning
  • parsley, to top optional

Instructions
 

  • In a medium bowl, mix the warm milk with sugar and add the yeast. The milk should be slightly warmer than room temperature; anything too hot or too cold will kill the yeast.

  • Leave the yeast to bloom for about 10 minutes. If it stays the same after that time, the yeast are dead and can't be used (raising or lowering the temperature won't help).
