I’ve also used Red Star and Fleischmann’s instant yeasts with good results. Though it may sound counterintuitive, I don’t recommend using fresh yeast. It has a short shelf life even when refrigerated, and because of that, it is less reliable than instant. Salt Many bakers say that salt is salt, but I disagree. Iodized table salt leaves a bitter aftertaste, and I can’t recommend it for bread baking. Both fine (not coarse) sea salt and kosher salt are very affordable and easily available. I love Brittany gray sea salt, which is hand-harvested in France using traditional Celtic methods.

For the sponge: Put the yeast, water, and half of the flour in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Pulse a few times on the lowest setting (to keep the flour from flying out of the bowl), then mix on low speed just to combine, about 1 minute. It is OK if there are some small lumps of flour. Let sit at room temperature until there are bubbles across the top, 20 to 30 minutes. • Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together the remaining flour, salt, and sugar. • Once the surface of the sponge is bubbly, pour the olive oil over the top, and mix on the lowest setting for just a few seconds to incorporate.
