Pizza Pull Apart Bread

I had been eyeing the pull apart breads since a long time, but somehow never had the courage to bake one myself. I think I should give credit to Gayathri for influencing me,  after seeing her amazing collection of breads, I was truly inspired.So here is a super soft bread which is more like a pizza .My hubby who avoids any kinds of breads gave me a green signal to go ahead and make JUST that bread for a future dinner.So for the second day of BM # 26 ,cooking with all purpose flour , relish this Pizza Bread.

½ cup all purpose flour
1 tsp instant yeast
1 ¼ tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
2 tbsp olive oil
1 cup warm water
Mix both the flours, yeast, salt, sugar and 2 tbsp olive oil.
