Mix until a dough is starting to form, then knead it manually in the bowl for several minutes until it forms a medium soft dough. Oil the bowl then place the dough in it. Cover with a tea towel and let rise. After an hour, gently deflate the dough then knead it on the counter for a minute.
  3. Divide into 3 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a ball, then spread to the size of a serving plate. Roll it up then pinch the seams. Repeat with the other two pieces,.

It's difficult for me to accept that this bread bakes at 200* f in only 25-30 minutes.
