  • 4 Cups flour plus about a handful for kneading
  • 4 Tablespoon Melted Butter
  • 1 Tbs Yeast
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Cup Warm Milk
  • 1/4 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Egg For Egg wash
  • 2 Tsp Sugar for proofing the Yeast


  • Dissolve the Yeast and Sugar in the warm milk
  • In another Bowl, combine the Butter and Eggs and set aside
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt and sugar, make a well at the center and add the yeast and the Egg and Butter mixture and mix together until a soft dough is formed.
  • Transfer the Dough to a lightly floured surface and knead until it’s smooth and elastic about 10 minutes by hand and about 7 minutes if using a mixer.
  • Place the Dough inside a very large oiled Bowl (making sure you smear some oil on the surface of the Dough) and leave to rise in a warm place for 1 hour or till doubled in size.
  • Deflate the dough, and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into 16 equal pieces, and form into round balls and place it in the Cast Iron skillet/Pan, then leave it to rise for another 30 minutes.
  • Place the pan on a low heat and cook for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes flip it to the other side and cook for additional 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat, allow it to cool and enjoy!
