2. Proof the yeast

Before combining all of your ingredients, you will need to proof your yeast. If you are using active dry yeast, dissolve it in 2 tablespoons of lukewarm water. Add a pinch of sugar and mix gently. Allow the yeast mixture to proof at room temperature. After 15 minutes, you should notice bubbles or foam formed by the yeast "blooming." This step is only necessary for active dry yeast. For instant yeast, go directly to mixing all ingredients.
