While yeast activates, mix together flour, salt, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning. Once yeast activates, mix in flour mixture. Form a fairly stiff ball of dough (sprinkle in extra flour if needed). Pour half of the olive oil over the top and rub over ball.

Allow dough to proof in Instant Pot for 30 minutes to an hour. Dough should rise to about double volume; poke down with a fork if needed.

Once dough rises, remove from Instant Pot and kneed in extra oil (and a little extra flour if needed to make the dough more firm - it should not really be sticky). Separate into balls and proof in the Instant Pot for 15-20 extra minutes.
