MIX DOUGH PREPARATION (1 DOUGH MIX) 1. DO NOT ADD BAKING SODA TO THE DOUGH MIX. Reserve baking soda packet for the BAKE section. In a large bowl, dissolve contents of 1 yeast packet in 1¼ cups lukewarm tap water. Let sit about 2 minutes. Add dough mix to yeast/water mixture and combine until dough ball forms. IF USING AN ELECTRIC MIXER: Follow Step 1 using a large mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer fitted with dough hook attachment, turn on low speed for 1 minute. Increase speed to medium low and continue mixing for 4 more minutes. Dough should form a soft, smooth, and slightly tacky ball. Continue to Step 3. 2. Turn dough ball onto lightly floured surface and knead approximately 5-7 minutes. Add a small amount of flour if dough is too sticky. Place dough ball into large greased bowl. 3. Coat a sheet of plastic wrap with nonstick spray and place on top of dough ball, tucking sides down around dough (to prevent dough from drying out). Place bowl in a warm spot (85-95°F) for 30 minutes so the dough can rest (i.e.: place bowl by a sunny window, on top of or near a warm oven, or on top of a refrigerator).
