Add you flour to a mixing bowl and make a well in the middle.
Now sprinkle your yeast and sugar around the perimeter of your well.
Add your salt to the centre of your well.
Now mix your oil and water rigorously before pouring it into the centre of your well.
Using a fork to begin with, start to bring your flour into the well a bit a time, stirring as you go.
Keep going until most of the flour and yeast is incorporated.
Now use your hand to keep gathering it all together until you have a slightly sticky ball of dough.
If it feels very sticky, add an extra couple of teaspoons of flour and knead in your bowl for a couple of minutes.
Once you have a very soft, sticky dough, mould into a ball and place back in your bowl.
Cover your bowl with a clean towel or cling film.
Leave to prove for 1 hour.
While your pide dough is proving, turn your attention to your pide fillings.
