Coca Dough
  1. Add all the ingredients to a large bowl
  2. Mix with your hands and kneed for a few minutes until you have an elastic dough
  3. Put the dough back into the bowl and cover with a warm dishcloth. Leave to rise in a warm place for about an hour.
  4. Roll out the dough to about a half cm thickness, and poke all over with a fork. Paint with olive oil and place on a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper.
  5. Bake at 400°F for about 10 minutes, until golden.
