A really easy bread type recipe that goes really well with just about any soup is a flatbread. Its not too hard to make, and is pretty light, so even my mother wouldn't mind me eating it
500g Plain flour
60ml Olive oil
1/2tsp Dried yeast
1. Add the dried yeast to warm water and set aside.
2. In a bowl, add the flour, making a well in the middle. Add the water/yeast, salt and olive oil and start mixing it in a circular motion until it forms a dough. Kneed it with the ball of your hand until it becomes smooth and elastic to the touch. Cover the bowl with cling-film and put in a warm place for 2 hours to rise.
3. Heat the oven to 220 degrees and warm up 2 baking trays. Divide the dough into 6 pieces and roll them out into 1/2 cm thick rounds, then place on the baking trays with a drizzle of oil, and cook for 6-8 minutes or until golden. Then serve and enjoy!
