Preparation

To start, you need a piece of mother yest. Add your flour and your water at room temperature and work well. Don't add any salt now: remember that salt prevent rising. Add the extravirgin olive oil and work even more. Now it's time to add a pinch of salt. Set your dough aside and leave it rise for 6-8 hours.

Never mix salt and yeast: salt stops rising!
