500g strong bread flour + extra for dusting
7g fast action yeast
2tsp caster sugar
300ml luke-warm water
3tbsp olive oil
Mix the flour with the yeast, salt and sugar.
Make a well in the middle.
Add the olive oil to the water and pour into the well.
Gradually mix all together to form a dough.
Flour the worktop and transfer the dough to it.
Knead until smooth and silky.
Put the dough in a lightly-oiled bowl, cover with cling film and put in a warm place for about an hour.
