  1. Put the flour in a medium bowl, make a well in the centre and add the yeast. Pour in 225ml warm (not hot) water, partially mix, then add the salt and olive oil. Transfer to a lightly floured surface and knead vigorously for 30 secs, then cover and set aside for 10 mins.

  2. Briefly knead the dough again on a lightly floured surface, then divide into 4 even pieces and shape into smooth balls. Dust well with more flour and cover with a clean tea towel. Set aside to rest for 30 mins or until almost doubled in size.

  3. Preheat the grill to high, setting a flat baking sheet in the middle. Roll 2 proved dough balls into rounds 18-20cm wide and 0.5cm thick. Carefully transfer to the hot baking sheet and bake for 3-5 mins until puffed and lightly browned. Wrap in a clean tea towel to keep warm and repeat with the remaining dough.
