6 cups plain flour
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 sachet instant dried yeast (8g instant yeast)
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 1/2 cupswarm water
Step 1 In a large bowl, combine sugar, salt, flour, yeast and oil. Stir in warm water and mix to form a soft dough, turn it on to the bench adding more flour if needed, then knead until smooth and springy, approx. 5-8 minutes.
Step 2 Place dough in a clean greased bowl, cover with cling film and microwave on low power for 1 minute. Rest dough for 10 minutes then repeat. After the second rest the dough should have doubled in size. (Alternatively, set aside in a warm place until doubled in size.)
Step 3 Punch dough down, knead lightly and divide into 2 or 4 pieces. Roll and stretch dough into oblongs and transfer to baking sheets. Add toppings of your choice and bake in a preheated oven at 210°C for 20-30 minutes. Bread should be golden and sound hollow when tapped.
