Time to make: 25 mins, plus 20 mins resting
4 cups plain flour
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 sachet instant dried yeast
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups warm water (use more or less as needed)
1/3 cup olive oil (or as required)
1 clove garlic, crushed
Step 1 In a large bowl combine the sugar, salt, flour, yeast and oil. Stir in the warm water and mix to form a soft dough. Turn it onto the bench, adding more flour if required, and knead until smooth and springy (5-8 minutes).
Step 2 Place dough into a clean greased bowl, cover with cling film and microwave on low power for 1 minute. Rest the 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 Combine the 1/3 cup oil and garlic and set aside.
Step 4 Punch the dough down, knead lightly and divide into 10 or so pieces. Roll the pieces so they are the thickness of pita bread – the shape doesn’t matter. Brush with garlicky oil and place oil side down on the barbecue grill. After 1-2 minutes the dough will begin to puff and bubble. Brush the remaining side with the oil and flip the dough until bubbled and lightly coloured. I usually let the kids cook the bread. Serve warm.
