- In a small pot or in the microwave, heat the milk to lukewarm (about 110F).
- Transfer the warm milk to a large bowl and whisk in the yeast and sugar. Cover with a kitchen towel and let stand until bubbly and foamy, about 10 minutes.
- Add 3⁄4 teaspoon of kosher salt and 1 tablespoon of sunflower oil. Slowly sift in 3 cups of the flour. Use a rubber spatula to stir until well combined and a rough dough comes together. Transfer to a clean work surface and knead until the dough comes together in a ball, then continue kneading until the dough is slightly sticky and soft, about 5 minutes.
- Form the dough in a ball and lightly brush with sunflower oil. Seal in a large ziplock plastic bag, or place in a medium bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let the dough rest in a warm place (70° to 80°F) until it doubles in size, about 11⁄2 hours.
