GET AHEAD You can do this on the day, if you prefer. Put the flour and 1 level teaspoon of sea salt into a large bowl and make a well in the middle. In a jug, mix the yeast into 375ml of lukewarm water with the honey and leave for a few minutes. Now, gradually pour the mixture into the well, stirring and bringing in the flour from the outside to form a dough. Knead on a flour-dusted surface, picking the dough up and slapping it back down, for 10 minutes, or until smooth and springy, then place in a lightly oiled bowl, cover and refrigerate overnight. If making on the day, cover with a clean damp tea towel and prove in a warm place for 1 hour, or until doubled in size.
TO SERVE Lightly crush the fennel seeds in a pestle and mortar. On a flour-dusted surface, split the dough into three equal pieces. Sprinkle the floured surface with 1 teaspoon of fennel seeds, then roll one ball of dough out on top until about 1cm thick. Place in a hot non-stick pan on a high heat, add 1 tablespoon of water to the pan, immediately cover and cook for 3 minutes on each side, or until golden and puffed up – adding the water creates steam and helps it rise. Remove to a board, rub with a little butter and sprinkle with a small pinch of salt, then repeat the process.
