You can add 1/2 tablespoon of seasoning to your dough if you'd like to give it some extra flavor but it is great as is. I keep thinking I will add some but always forget and love it just the same.

Food Science notes:  •Adding the sugar with the yeast will help it activate faster. The yeast will feed off the sugar and do its yeast thing. Also the crust will be fluffier and little more bread like by adding the yeast and water together first and not just adding water to all the dry ingredients. •When kneading the dough you are forming the gluten bonds that give bread its texture. • If your water is to hot you will kill your yeast, best indication of this is that it never starts to smell yeasty, It can be too cold and still work just take longer to rise, but do not go above 110°
