Place the 1/3 cup of water in the bowl of electric mixer. Add yeast and mix briefly to blend then let sit for 5 minutes. Add flour, remaining water, olive oil and salt. Turn on mixer just to combine then turn mixer off and let sit for 10 minutes. Then mix on low speed for 8 minutes.
Oil a large container or bowl. Place dough inside and cover. Place in a warm place (not in the oven, however) and let rise until doubled, about 90 minutes.
