  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 1/3 cup lukewarm water
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Vegetable oil, enough to coat the dough


  1. In a bowl, combine flour and salt.
  2. Slowly incorporate the water, while mixing until a mass is formed.
  3. Begin kneading the dough on a floured surface for about 10 minutes or until smooth.
  4. It should feel moist, but not sticky.
  5. Dust the dough with a little more flour if needed.
  6. Then beat or slam the dough a few times to help relax the gluten.
  7. Form it into a ball, and set it aside in a bowl of vegetable oil to rest for at least one hour.
