For Dough: Sift mixture into a bowl and add oil and water. Work dough with your hands until a smooth dough is obtained.

Mix the ricotta and the roughly chopped raw spinach leaves and spread all over. Gather sides of dough to cover a quarter of the filling. Sprinkle some salt and pepper to taste, a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and sesame seeds. Bake in a 220°C preheated oven for 15 minutes. Slice, serve and enjoy!
