Heat milk, salt, and sugar on the stove until bubbles appear on the side of the pan.
Remove from heat, and put in a large bowl. Let cool.
Add 2 cups of flour, and stir in dissolved yeast. Mix.
Add one cup of flour at a time (stirring in between) until the dough can be handled - it should not be sticky. Form the dough into a ball.
Put the dough in a buttered bowl, turning a few times so that the outside of the dough is coated.
Cover and place in an off oven or microwave (there should not be air flow). Let rise for 1 1/2 hours or until size has doubled.
Uncover, and punch down the dough. Lightly grease a 13 by 9 by 2 inch pan, and spread the dough flat.
Make shallow indentations on top of the dough with your knuckles. Drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt.
Bake at 400 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes or until light tan in color.
Remove from oven, and wrap in wax paper to store.
This bread makes a good salami sandwich.
