1 teaspoon caster sugar
2 cups flour plus some extra 
1 tablespoon olive oil

Pre-heat oven to 220C.

Stir and leave for 10 minutes to activate (become frothy).
Place flour, olive oil and salt in a large bowl.
Once the yeast mix is ready add to the flour along with ½ - 1 cup water.

Divide into small balls and roll into circles.
