Make a well in center of flour mixture and add buttermilk. With a fork, toss gently until mixture is just moistened; dough will be very sticky. Do not over mix.
Turn dough out onto a wellfloured work surface and knead very lightly once or twice with floured hands, sprinkling dough lightly with enough flour to keep it from sticking. Using floured hands, gently but firmly pat out dough 1/2 inch thick.
