In a large mixing bowl, stir yeast into water to soften for five minutes. Add three eggs, sugar, oil and salt and beat lightly. Add flour in small increments, continuing to mix, until you have a smooth, moist, elastic dough.

Turn the dough out on to a lightly floured surface and knead by hand for five more minutes.

Put the dough into a large bowl oiled with FS17, turning once to coat the entire ball of dough with oil. Cover and let rise until doubled, for about an hour.

Turn dough out onto a lightly oiled work surface. Divide into thirds. Shape each third into a rope about 20 inches long
