Put the flour and yeast into a bowl, mix together and add 325ml tepid water. When the dough starts to form use your hands to bring the ingredients into a ball.

Lightly dust your work surface with flour and tip out the dough and knead it for 10 minutes.

Place the kneaded dough into an oiled bowl and cover with a lightly oiled piece of cling film to stop it sticking. Leave the dough to prove in a warm place for an hour until the dough has doubled in size.

Next, remove the dough and stretch across a baking sheet. (20cm x 30cm). Cover the dough with a damp tea towel and leave in a warm place for 30-40 minutes until the dough has risen slightly.
