5 Ingredient Italian Sub Roll Recipe!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Rise Time 45 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 15 minutes
Servings 4 Rolls


  • 1 ½ Cups Warm Water
  • 2 Tbsp Instant Yeast
  • 3 ½ Tsp Sugar
  • 1 ½ Tsp Salt
  • 3 ½ Tsp Vegetable Oil
  • 4 Cups All Purpose Flour


  • In a bowl, combine warm water, instant yeast, salt, sugar and vegetable oil. Give that a mix.
  • Add in all purpose flour, mixing as you add it in, then mix until a rough, shaggy dough forms. Cover and let that sit for 15 minutes.
  • Your dough should already be at least 50% bigger. Transfer to a counter and knead until a smooth dough ball forms. Divide into 4 pieces.
  • Shape each piece into a ball then roll into a ~ 8 X 8 inch square (doesn’t have to exact). Start rolling the square very tightly all the way down till you have a baguette like shape, then pinch the seams and sides to close and roll out to make them slightly longer.
  • Transfer to a parchment lined baking sheet, brush with some water. Cover and allow to rise for 30 minutes. Once risen, brush with water one more time and add desired toppings.
  • Bake at 375 F for 20-25 minutes or until fully golden. Remove, allow to cool fully and enjoy!
