  • Mix the ingredients, bringing flour in bit by it until they come together to form a (slightly wet and sticky) dough.
  • Knead the dough on a lightly floured work surface.
  • Once the dough ball looks smooth, pop it in a bowl, cover with cling film and leave it in a warm place until its roughly doubled in size.
  • When it’s ready turn the dough out on to a lightly floured surface, knead it slightly and roll it out. Place it on a baking sheet.
