Step 1: Mix

Add the flour, warm water, salt, butter and yeast to the stand mixer bowl with dough hook. Knead on medium speed until the dough is completely mixed. Then, increase the speed to high until the dough forms a ball around the hook.

Step 2: Divide

Remove the dough ball from the stand mixer, cover and let rest for about 5 minutes. Then, divide the ball into 8 smaller dough balls and let rest for another 5 minutes.
