- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, yeast, salt, and sugar until well combined.
- Add the olive oil and warm water to the dry ingredients, and mix with a spoon until a shaggy dough forms.
- Transfer the dough to a floured surface and knead for about 5 minutes, or until the dough becomes smooth and elastic.
- Place the dough back into the mixing bowl, cover with a clean cloth, and let it rest in a warm, draft-free place for about 1 hour, or until it doubles in size.
- Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Once the dough has doubled in size, punch it down to release the air and transfer it to a floured surface.
- Divide the dough into equal portions and shape them into balls.
- Flatten each dough ball into a circle or oval shape, about 1/2-inch thick.
- Place the flattened dough onto the prepared baking sheet and let them rest for about 15 minutes.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the Turkish bread is golden and sounds hollow when tapped.
- Remove from the oven and let the Turkish bread cool slightly before serving.
