1.  Once you have mixed the dough, you can knead it in the bowl or, as shown here, on a work surface. Bring the dough together into a mound. Don't overwork it - it should look a bit ragged.

2.  Flatten the mound into a 3/4-inch-thick disk with the heel of your hand or with a rolling pin. Cut the disk into wedges and bake until pale brown.
