  1. Combine bread flour and water in the bowl of a stand mixer attached with a dough hook.
  2. Mix on low speed, scraping down the sides as needed of any flour, until a shaggy dough forms, about 5 minutes.
  3. Mix together yeast, sugar, warm water in a separate bowl and let sit until the yeast is foamy, about 5 minutes.
  4. Pour yeast mixture into dough and mix on low speed until dough absorbs yeast mixture, about 2 minutes.

  7. Scrape the dough into the oiled bowl and cover with a plastic wrap. 
  8. Place the dough in a warm spot for 1½ hours. 
  9. Remove the dough and fold it in half, then half again.

  11. Place a piece of parchment paper in the air fryer basket covering the bottom and place the dough on top. 
  12. Spread the dough toward the edges of the air fryer basket.
  13. Add any left over oil in the bowl on top of the dough and sprinkle with dried oregano. 
  14. Place the basket in the air fryer and allow to proof for 30 minutes more.
