Sponge Ingredients

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 packs instant yeast (20 grams)

Remaining Ingredients

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 ¼ cup warm water


  • In a bowl of a stand mixer, add all sponge ingredients. Mix for 1 minute, cover and let it rest for 10 minutes until sponge develops. If a sponge doesn’t develop, start over, your yeast is no good.
  • Add remaining ingredients and let it mix until a dough forms.
  • Lightly flour your work surface, knead and form into a bowl.
  • Cover and let it rest for one hour until it doubles in sizes.
  • Cut down into equal sizes, and form balls, making sure to pinch all sides downwards to lock some air.
  • Using a rolling pin, flatten the balls into discs, place on a try and bake in a preheated oven at max. You can also make it on a skillet.


  • If you have a pasta making machine, you can roll the balls into discs on it on setting #1. Only feed the machine once, and make sure to flour it slightly first.
  • You can add corn meal to your tray or skillet. Less than ¼ tsp per bread, it will give a different texture and elevate your recipe into something new.
