  1. Grease a baking sheet lightly with oil.
  2. Measure flour into a large bowl. Make a well in the flour.
  3. Dilute yeast and 1 tsp sugar in a little warm water (105-115F). Pour into well.
  4. Lightly beat the egg whites. Pour into the well along with 1 cup warm water, salt, and oil.

  7. Knead again, over again, and allow dough to rise again.
  8. Divide dough into 3 equal pieces.
