2 tsp dried active yeast
1 tsp baking powder
3 tsp sugar
½ tsp salt

Empty the dough onto a clean work surface and knead the dough for about 5 minutes or until smooth.

Place the dough into a bowl and cover with a plastic bag or a piece of kitchen foil and set aside in a warm place for about 1 to 1½ hours or until the dough has doubled in size.


Pre-heat your oven and grill  put baking tray in the oven to heat.
