To Assemble

1

In a large bowl, mix yeast, warm water and sugar.

2

Leave somewhere warm for the yeast to activate.

3

Once it froths, add 3 cups of flour, oil, garlic, herbs and salt and mix well. Form a dough.

4

Flour your hands and a clean work bench and knead dough until it becomes elastic and smooth. This should take around 5–7 minutes.

5

If mixture is too wet, add more flour a tablespoon at a time.

6

If too dry, add a little water or oil.

7

When you are satisfied that dough is looking good, oil a clean bowl, add dough, cover with a tea towel and set aside to rise in a warm place.

8

It should take about 30 minutes to an hour, depending on room temperature.
