150g Plain flour

Black pepper (coarse ground ) or Your favorite topping

1. Combine flours, sugar, salt, yeast, and water in a bowl. Mix with your finger  to roughly combine the ingredients.
2. Place the dough onto the floured counter, then knead it for 10 minutes till it becomes smooth and elastic.  
3. Put the dough into a bowl with cover, place it warm place (35℃) till it becomes double size (about 1 hours).
