Mix the dry yeast with the warm water along with sugar and keep it aside for 5 min. It will form foam as shown in the photo.

Take the flour in a bowl; add the required amount of salt. Slowly add the yeast water, oil and make the dough. Knead the dough until smooth and make a ball. Place the dough ball in a well oiled bowl and cover it with damp tea towel or plastic wrap. Keep it aside for 1 hour in a warm place. The dough will double its size.

Punch down the dough add 1 tbsp of oil, divide it to two halves and again knead it for few more minutes, cover and keep it aside for 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 220˚C

Grease the baking tray with oil or spread aluminium foil in the tray, roll the dough balls  with rolling pin or spread it by pressing with hand to fit in to the baking tray.
