DIRECTIONS

  • Sift together the flour and salt into a large bowl and stir in the dried yeast and oregano.
  • Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture.
  • Add the olive oil and gradually add enough of the warm water to make a soft dough. The amount of water will vary according to the flour but the dough must be malleable.
  • Knead the dough on a floured surface until smooth and elastic - about 10 minutes.
  • Place dough back in clean lightly oiled bowl and turn it around to coat it with some of the oil; cover with cling wrap and leave in a warm place to "prove".
  • After the dough has doubled in size (approx 60 minutes), knock it back and knead again for about 3 minutes.
  • Shape and top as desired.
