  1. Combine the warm milk (110-115˚F or 45˚C), melted butter, warm water (110-115˚F or 45˚C), and sugar in a large bowl and stir until mixed.
  2. Sprinkle the yeast evenly over the top of the mixture and let sit for 1 minute.
  3. Add the salt, egg, and 4 cups (500g) of flour. Mix until the mixture just comes together and forms a dough.
  4. Cover for 30 minutes with a towel or plastic wrap.
  5. Uncover, and mix in the remaining cup of flour, and turn out onto a well-floured surface.
  6. Knead the dough until it forms a smooth ball and loses some of its stickiness.
  7. Cover for 30 more minutes with a towel or plastic wrap.
  8. Preheat the oven to 375˚F (190˚C).
  9. Uncover, and roll dough into 16 equal balls, roughly the size of a tangerine. Ensure the rolls are smooth with no cracks.
  10. Place the rolls in a greased cast iron pan and brush with water.
  11. Add desired toppings, or customize with your own!
