Dissolve the yeast in 60ml (4 tbsp) lukewarm water, then add to the flour in a bowl with 200 ml (7 fl oz) lukewarm water and the refined cooking oil. Knead to a smooth, workable dough and set aside.
Peel and chop the onions and cook them in the olive oil in a pan until softened. Peel and crush the garlic and knead into the dough with the onion mixture.
