Pour a little oil over the dough and turn it over a couple of times to coat.

 

Cover with a warm damp towel and place in warm spot to allow it to rise until doubled about 45 minutes. If you need a warm place, turn on your oven to 170 degrees F (76.67 C). Once the oven reaches this temperature turn it off then place the covered bowl inside to rise and close the door.

 

After first rise punch dough down and form it into 2 equal sized balls.
