dough. Knead carefully for 5 minutes, keeping your hands as cleen as
possible. Leave the dough to rise in the bowl covered with oiled clingfilm

it over when the smooth and floury side will be facing upwards. Let recover
for 20 minutes. Meanwhile heat the oven to 220C/425F/gas mark 7.

Either slash the top with a sharp knife or leave it to crack freestyle in
the oven. Bake for 35, until golden. Cool on a wire rack.
