How to Make:

  1. Combine flour, yeast and sugar in a bowl. Stir in salt. Make a well. Add water and oil. Stir to combine. Use your hands to bring dough together.
  2. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead for 10 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Brush a bowl with oil. Add dough. Turn to coat.
  3. Cover with a damp tea towel. Set aside in a warm place for 30 minutes or until dough doubles in size. Punch down dough with your fist.
  4. Knead for 30 seconds or until dough is original size. Halve dough. Cover 1 portion with a damp tea towel. Roll out the other portion to 30cm.
  5. Preheat oven to 230ºC. Dust trays with polenta. Ease the dough so it comes a little up the side. This forms a thicker edge during baking.
  6. Use your fingers to press the base, avoiding the edge, to make indents. This stops it rising in the centre. Repeat with remaining dough.
