  2. Combine the flour and salt in a large mixing bowl, make a well in the centre then add the yeast mixture, mix until it comes together to from a sticky dough. Tip the dough onto a floured work surface and knead for 10 minutes until smooth and elastic. Place in an oiled bowl and cover loosely with oiled clingfilm. Set aside in a warm place to rise for an hour or until doubled in size.
