  3. Knead for 10 minutes (if the dough seems too hard, add another bit of water). When the dough becomes smooth and elastic form a ball, place it in a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place for 2 hours or until the dough doubles the volume. The rising times are approximate, it can take more or less time depending on the temperature of the environment, the freshness of the yeast, the strength of the flour and other factors not related to the recipe.
