For 4 breads

200g unbleached strong white flour
Half a teaspoon of salt
Third teaspoon dried yeast
170ml tepid water
1 tablespoon olive oil

1] Mix the Flour and Salt in a bowl
2] Dissolve the Yeast in the Water and gently stir in the Oil
3] Add the Water mix into the Flour while stirring (or use your hand)
4] Roll out onto a floured surface and kneed for 5 minutes
5] Put the dough back into the bowl and cover it with a damp cloth for 45 minutes
6] Preheat the oven to 230c
7] Break the dough into 4 balls and gently roll them into circles of 3-5mm thick
8] Oil a baking tray and put them in the top of the oven for 5-10 minutes

They should bubble and colour a little, but not burn. Someone should keep an eye on them.
