Make The Dough
Place the flour into the bowl of a stand mixer along with the yeast, sugar and garlic powder (if using). Turn on the the stand mixer, using the dough hook attachment and combine them thoroughly, making sure there is an even distribution. Season with a pinch of salt, then make a well in the middle and slowly pour in about 90% of the water and all of the oil. Use a wooden spoon to combine everything into a single ball, adding a splash more water if you need to.
Knead for around 10 minutes, stopping once the dough is soft and elastic.
Cover the bowl loosely with a tea towel or some cling film. Leave at room temperature for 2 hours to prove and double in size.
