This recipe was a huge hit in this household. I found that the doubling time only took 45 minutes but I live in the tropics and my kitchen is a constant 30 deg C. I used olive oil and water and found the recipe worked perfectly. I didn't roll the dough - I pushed it out with my fingers making it look a lot more rustic.
- 4 cups plain flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon sugar
