Put all ingredients in your stand-mixer bowl, and knead for 1 minute on low – only until the flour is incorporated.
Shift to high, and knead for 10(!) more minutes.
Form a ball, cover with a plastic bag, and let rise by approx. 80% (approx. 1-1½ hours) .
Divide into 3 equal parts (approx. 375 gr. each), knead well and form balls.
Line a surface with baking paper.
Take first ball and roll into a paper-thin circle.
***No need to flour or oil surface – dough is very easy to work with***
