  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt (optional) 

  • 2 cups warm water 

  • 2 ¼ teaspoons instant yeast 

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil 


  1. Mix together flour, 2 cups of cheddar cheese, 2 chopped jalapeñoes, and the salt together in a bowl. (Salt is optional here. 

  1. In a separate bowl, mix together 2 cups of warm water and 2 ¼ teaspoons of instant yeast. 

  1. Combine the wet and dry mix and stir until a dough forms. 

  1. Using a spatula, fold the dough 8 times and let it rest for 60 minutes.
