  • 1 cup bread flour
  • 1/2 cup beer
  • 1 tsp yeast
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil


  • Put the flour, yeast, salt, and sugar into a bowl, and mix everything together until all the ingredients have incorporated into a mixture.
  • Now you have to add the beer and half of the olive oil. Use your hands to get the liquids to be absorbed by the dough, until you get a malleable dough. Test it to check how well you can work with it.
  • Cover the ball of dough with the rest of the olive oil, and leave it in the bowl. Cover the bowl with a transparent film.
  • Let the dough rest for three hours.
