in a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour , undissolved yeast, salt, sugar, herbs. Add lightly beaten egg and the yogurt. Add both oils to very warm water and stir into flour mixture. stir in additional flour to make a soft dough. kneed dough while adding flour as needed until smooth and elastic, about 5-6 min.
