  • 1 envelope dry active yeast
  • 1 cup lukewarm water
  • 2 1/2 cup unbleached white bread flour
  • 1/2 tbsp salt
  • 2 tbsp olive oil, plus additional for drizzling
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Sea salt


  • 1
    Dissolve the yeast in the warm water and set aside. Sift together the flour and salt. Add the yeast mixture and olive oil. Stir until just combined.

    Turn the dough out onto a floured cutting board and knead for 5-7 minutes, until it forms a cohesive ball. Place the ball (it’ll be about the size of a softball) into a greased bowl and cover with a kitchen towel. Let the dough rest for one hour in a warm place. It will double in size.
  • 3
    Once it's rise, punch down the dough several times. Then, divide it into six even-sized balls.
  • 4
    Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the six balls of dough on it, using your fingers to push down four times on each one (you are basically giving it dimples). Drizzle with olive oil and then sprinkle with Parmesan and salt.
  • 5
    Cover the dough with a kitchen towel and let rise for at least 30 minutes.
  • 6
    Preheat oven to 375°F. Remove towel and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
  • 7
    Let cool for a few minutes before serving. Slice the rolls open and top with burgers and the fixings.
