Ingredients: 2 cups refined flour
1 tsp dry yeast
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp oil
water to mix the dough
2, 10" or 3, 8" round baking tins

Method: Dissolve sugar in 1/2 cup lukewarm water. Sprinkle yeast over the water and leave in a draught-free place to froth.

Sieve the refined flour with salt and rub the oil into it. Add yeast solution and knead into a smooth, but not stiff dough, using water as required.

Place in a greased bowl and cover with a thick, damp cloth or cling foil. Place in a warm draught-free place to rise.

When the dough has doubled, punch it in the center, smoothen it and leave to rise once again. To test, press into the dough lightly and the impression should fill up gradually when your dough is ready.
