    Work for the outer edge and mix all the dry ingredients into the water. When the mix has come together turn out on to a lightly floured surface and knead for about 10 minutes. At this stage the dough should be soft and spring back when lightly touched.

  4. Classic mode Step 4

    Flour the dough and cover with cling and leave to rest for about 15 minutes. If not baking immediately leave the dough wrapped in lightly oiled cling film and place in the fridge until you are ready to shape and bake.

    Taking one pieces at a time and roll out on a very lightly floured surface. Ideally the base should be 5mm thick but you can be creative on the shape. Place on a baking tray and leave the rolled bases for 15 to 30 minutes to rest. Meanwhile preheat the oven to 200C (fan 180 C, gas mark 6).
