  • 500 g Whole wheat plain flour
  • 7 g Dried yeast
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 325 ml Warm water
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil


  • In a jug, mix the water, olive oil and yeast and let it rest for 5 minutes.
  • In a large bowl, mix the flour and salt and make a well in the middle.
  • Pour the wet mixture into the middle of the well and mix well until you have a dough ball.
  • Transfer the dough onto a floured surface and knead for 5 minutes.
  • Place the dough ball in a floured bowl.
  • Cover with a damp cloth and leave in a warm place for around an hour so it can rise (it should double in size).
  • Remove the dough and knead again for 5 minutes. Divide the dough into 4 pieces, and either wrap them all in cling film and put in the freezer, or put one to the side to use right away and only freeze 3.
