  • 10 ml dried yeast
  • 60 ml water
  • 500 g white flour
  • 10 ml salt
  • 30 ml olive oil
  • 250 ml carbonated water


  • Sprinkle the yeast into the water in a bowl. Leave for 5 minutes; stir to dissolve. Mix the flour and salt together in a large bowl. Make a well in the center and pour in the yeast and water, the oil, and 150 ml of the carbonated water.
  • Mix in the flour. Stir in the reserved carbonated water, as needed, to form a firm, moist dough.
  • Turn the dough out on to a lightly floured work surface. Knead until smooth, shiny, and elastic, about 10 minutes.
  • Put the dough in a clean bowl and cover with a tea towel. Leave to rise until doubled in size, about 1 1/2 hours. Knock back, then leave to rest for a further 10 minutes.
  • Dived the dough into eight equal-sized pieces. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out each piece to form a round 6 inch (15 cm) across and 1/2 inch (1 cm) thick. If the dough resists rolling out, leave it to rest for 1-2 minutes, then continue.
  • Heat a heavy frying pan or griddle over a medium-low heat until very hot, about 10 minutes.
  • Place one of the dough rounds in the hot pan and prick all over with a fork to prevent air bubbles. Cook until golden brown on both sides, flipping it over frequently to avoid scorching and to aid even cooking, about 3-5 minutes.
  • Repeat with the remaining dough rounds as directed in step 7. Stack the rounds on top of each other and cover with a tea towel to keep soft and warm.
