Re-roofing large shed with low pitch

I have a large workshop shed which was roofed with felt nailed in place by the previous owner of the house. It is now leaking and i am consider what to replace the roof with.

The shed is 3m x 7m, fully boarded roof with a roof pitch of 1-2 degrees. As i see it my options are:

- replace the felt
- Install corrugated bitumen roofing sheet (would need 2 rows of sheets)
- Install metal corrugated sheets (2 rows needed)

Would corrugated sheeting work with such a low pitch? If so would the bitumen sheets work? they are cheaper and nicer to look at than the corrugated metal sheets.

Please let me know what you think
