  • Pour a dash of oil into your skillet and smear it around with your fingers.
  • Coat the inside of the skillet and the palms of your hands with oil.
  • Knead the dough for about 30 seconds, rolling it in the flour and thickening it.
  • Halve the dough.
  • Halve it again, making 4 pieces of dough.
  • Roll each piece of dough between your hands, making it into a ball, then put it in the skillet.

  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Bake 25 minutes.
