Dust a work surface with flour and turn the dough out onto it. Knead for a couple of minutes until you have a smooth dough, then divide into six pieces.

 

Dust a rolling pin and roll each piece into a 1cm/ ½ in-thick bread and stack them between sheets of greaseproof paper. 

 

Heat a griddle pan or barbecue until very hot. Grill each bread for a couple of minutes on each side until char marks appear and the insides are cooked through, brushing the breads with oil as you turn them.Keep warm while you cook the others and serve with the mixed grill.
