Pour 1.5 cups of warm water, 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil and 1/2 teaspoon active dry yeast into the Bosch mixer and wait for 5 minutes.
In the meanwhile, put 3 cups bread flour and 1/2 tablespoon salt in a container. Mix them well.
After that, turn on Bosch mixer the lowest setting #1. Pour the flour mixture into the yeast mixture. Let it mix until the dough comes together.
Then, take the dough out from the mixer and put in a container cover with a plastic wrap and let it rise for 45 minuets at room temperature. (See more at cooking tips section.)
Dip some water on hands, pull and fold the dough 4 sides and rest the dough for 45 minutes at room temperature. Remember this step is very important and don’t pop the air holes. Repeat this step 3 more times. At least 4 sets of pulling, folding and resting. See the video for details.
Next, dust some flour on parchment paper, put the dough on the paper. Then, dust some flour on the top of the dough. Remember don’t press the dough, just pour the dough out.
Then, divide the dough into two and shape the dough into the shape you want. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and let it rise again for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven at 450 F. Spray some water (6-7 times) on the dough before baking it.
Bake at 450 F for 10 minutes, then drop the temperature to 400 F for another 10 minutes until it’s golden brown.
