In a large sauce pan, heat the milk and butter till the butter is melted. Make sure it does not get to a boil.
Move the mix to a bowl and let it cool to 110 F. This is the optimum temperature for the yeast to activate. If its too hot, the yeast will die at around 140 F.
Once cooled, add in the yeast and mix it. Leave it to activate for 10 minutes.
Once activated, add the sugar , salt and half of the dough and mix continuously.
Add the rest of the flour and keep mixing. The dough will be sticky and this is normal.
Once the dough gets too stiff and thick to mix in the bowl, take it out and put it on a lightly floured clean surface. Knead for around 2 minutes or until the dough becomes a smooth soft ball. Do not over-knead the dough.
Grease the bowl with olive oil and add the dough back in. Coat the dough with a light touch of oil as well.
Wrap the bowl with plastic wrap and set it in a warm place to let it rise for 1 hour or until it doubles in size. Ideally you could preheat the oven to 150 F, switch it off and put the bowl in there to rise.
Take the dough out of the bowl and place it on a lightly floured surface. Roll it out to a 1/4 inch thick rectangle.
