In a big bowl, pour in the flour and salt and mix well.
Sprinkle the yeast and sugar on top of the flour mix and add the lukewarm water (around body temperature) and oil, then mix well until a dough is formed. The dough will be quite wet so no kneading is necessary at this stage. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let rise for at least 3 hours in a warm place (the microwave if not being used).
When it doubles in size, sprinkle flour on top of the dough and divide it in two. Make a round ball and flatten it, stretching it as much as possible to get a thin crust.
As a condiment, use a mix of tomato sauce, oregano and olive oil. Then add sliced onions, capers, mushrooms and fresh tomatoes.
Cook in the oven with a pot of water on the bottom at 200C for around 10-15 minutes.
