3 cups of All Purpose Flour or Very Strong White Flour

In a large mixing bowl, sieve the flour, yeast, sugar and salt.
Add the oil, then mix well till the oil has combined.
Slowly add in hot water and knead the dough, using a fork as the water will be hot, to form a soft dough.
Divide the dough into two balls, leave the dough to rest for 5 minutes covering with a damp kitchen towel.
Work each dough piece with your hands until forming a smooth and even ball, then roll out the dough with a rolling pin then transfer into a lightly buttered tray and spread it out with your hand to the edge of the tray and put it in the oven for 6 hours, this will ferment the dough.
