Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a large mixing bowl, add the flours, powdered milk, salt, sugar and yeast. Mix together.
  • Make a small well in the mixture. Pour in the olive oil and half the water.
  • Use your hands to combine the mixture into a dough. Add water a bit at a time and keep mixing until you have slightly wet, but not sticky dough.
  • Cover and leave to rise until double in size.
  • Once doubled in size, knead the dough gently for 15 seconds.
  • Flour a surface. Take a fist sized chunk of dough and place it on the floured surface.
  • Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough until it has roughly a 20cm circumference. 
  • Place on baking paper on a baking tray. Cook in the oven for 5-7 minutes at 450°F (230°C) until brown.
