  3. Pour the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead it for a couple of minutes until smooth and elastic. Wrap the dough in a piece of cling film and let it rest at room temperature for at least 1 hour.

  4. Divide the dough into even portions. Start stretching the dough using your fingers and the palms of your hand. Use a rolling pin in the end (the dough is a bit tough so apply some force). Roll out the dough thinly into a round shape.
