  2. In another bowl, combine, warm water, olive oil, honey, and egg yolk.
  3. Add to dry mixture and beat with an electric mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds, scraping the bowls constantly. Increase the speed to high and continue to beat for 3 minutes. Using a spoon, stir in remaining flour.
  4. Turn dough onto a floured surface, and knead until dough is smooth and elastic, about 5-8 minutes.

  9. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
