Step by Step method
- Mix the yeast with a cup of warm water and the sugar and wait for it to foam and bubble.
- In a bowl, mix the all the dry ingredients and the yogurt.
- Add the olive oil and rub it into the flour mix with your finger tips until the mix resembles wet sand.
- Add the yeast water mix and start kneading the dough.
- Gradually add the water until you get a smooth dough that does not stick to your hands or the bowl.
- Cover the dough and allow it to double in a warm place.
- Preheat your oven to 270 C and position the oven rack in the middle.
- Cut the dough into 20 small balls or 10 big ones depending on the size of the loaves you want.
- Take a small pinch of each ball, dip it in olive oil, then stuff it back in the ball. Leave them to rest for about 5 to 10 minutes. (this is the secret of perfection).
- Brush your bread mold (if using) with olive oil and roll the dough on top of the bread mold or simply roll the dough into a circle 1 cm in thickness.
