Once yeast has formed, pour into your mixer and let the dough come together and let the mixer knead the dough for a few minutes. Slowly add more flour as needed.
Once the dough has formed a smooth ball, place on a floured board and knead for a few minutes.
Place in a well-oiled bowl, cover and place in a warm place for an hour so that the dough can rise.
