I love this dough recipe because it works with different toppings! It’s quick, basic and satisfies your belly.  I love waking up early and preparing freshly baked dough topped with dried thyme and olive oil (aka MAN2OUCH). Have your man2ouch with cucumbers, tomatoes and a cup of tea!



6 cups brown flour
1 cup powdered milk
1 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 tsps instant yeast
3 tsps sugar
1 tsp salt
2 cups lukewarm water




Prepare the dough by mixing all the ingredients together except the water (I usually don’t add the sugar). Mix the ingredients well using your clean, flour-dusted hands and then slowly start adding water; start with 1 cup and mix then keep adding until the desired texture is achieved (you don’t want the dough sticking to your hands). Once done, place the ball of dough in a large flour-dusted bowl and flour the top of it. Cover the bowl with a damp cloth and let the dough rest for at least an hour in a warm place until the dough has doubled in size. Meanwhile, place on a clean surface and on your rolling pin some flour. When the dough is ready, knead it around a bit to push the air out with your hands. Note that you can either use the dough immediately, or keep it, wrapped in clingfilm, in the fridge or freezer until required. If using straight away, divide the dough into as many small balls. Roll the ball on the floured surface. Use your hand to press it down to a flatter circle. Take the rolling pin and start rolling, turning the dough occasionally.

You can roll it out into the desired shape, and you can also use a round cutter to make mini-sized dough. Add the desired topping, and transfer to a baking sheet and place in a preheated oven at 200°C. Watch out not to over-bake them or they will become crispy and hard. They usually need around 10-15 minutes. Enjoy and Bon Appétit!

And here’s how my mini-man2ouch turned out!
