Stir together the yeast and water in a large bowl.
Let sit 5 minutes until yeast is foamy. Mix in the olive oil, salt, and flour.
Knead the bread:
If you have a stand mixer, knead the dough for 5-6 minutes, or until elastic.
If you are doing this by hand, knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until dough is elastic, 7-10 minutes.
Place the ball of dough into a lightly oiled bowl and cover with a clean kitchen towel. Allow to rise for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until dough is doubled in size.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine melted butter, parsley flakes, and minced garlic. Set aside.
Punch down the dough. Tear off small pieces of dough (roughly the size of a medium spoon), coat in the butter mixture, and place in the bottom of a bundt pan.
Repeat this process until you have one layer of dough balls.
Sprinkle on 1/3 of the Parmesan cheese. Continue layering the dough balls and cheese until you have 3 layers.
Cover the pan with a clean towel and allow to sit until dough has doubled in size, 20-30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until bread is golden brown.
Serve hot with a side of marinara or tomato sauce.
