  1. For the dough, put the flour into a large mixing bowl. Open the middle like a pit and add yeast, water, and salt.
  2. Knead until all the ingredients are well mixed. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and rest it for 45–50 minutes.

  • Roll out the dough thin and long.
  • Spread the filling on the top of the dough towards the edges.
