All-Purpose Flour-3 1/2 cups.
Sugar-3 tablespoons.
Salt-2 teaspoons.
Active Dry Yeast-1 package.
Hot Water-1 1/4 cups.
Butter-2 tablespoons.
Egg yolk-1 slightly beaten.
Kosher Salt for topping.

Combine the flour, salt, sugar and yeast in to a mixing bowl. In a small saucepan, warm the water. Place the butter into the warm water and mix until it melts. Water mixture should not exceed 120F degrees or you will ruin the yeast.
Add the liquid mixture to the dry ingredients and mix until well combined about 4 minutes. Knead the dough until smooth and supple, about 7 minutes. Place the dough into a buttered bowl coating the entire dough with the butter. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise for 40 minutes.
Place the dough on to a cutting board and cut it into 8-12 different pieces. Shape the dough and place on to a cookie sheet lined with buttered parchment paper.
Sprinkle your favorite toppings. Cover with a cloth and allow to rise for 8 minutes.
Bake in a preheated 375F degree oven for about 20 minutes until golden brown.
Good luck
