1 cup water warm
1 1/4 teaspoon yeast
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons oil
2.5 - 3 cups strong bread flour or plain flour
Take a medium sized bowl and place the water, yeast, sugar and salt and mix with a fork. Slowly add 2 cups of the flour and stir in with a butter knife. Keep adding the remaining flour and the oil until you get a dough.
Turn the dough on to a work surface and knead for 10 minutes with the palm of your hand until you get a bouncy dough texture.
In order to prove the dough, spray some oil on the inside of the bowl, place the dough, cover with cling film. Place a kitchen towel over it and place in a warm place for at least 2 hours. Overnight is better.
