Regular flour(all-purpose) is the only kind you would like. If you want a different assortment of dough you can use a whole-wheat flour, cornmeal or mashed potato to provide a different flavor and texture.

You can make dough by hand by mixing the flour and dry ingredients in the mound on a surface or large bowl. You mix the yeast mixture and stir in the circular motion before the dough forms. If by hand you need to knead the dough by using it a floured surface to provide a source heal of your hand pushing within the dough back and forth until it can be smooth and elastic.
