I recently purchased a package of Flatout Bread and I'm hooked! Better than sliced bread!!! So, I'm on a quest to duplicate it as closely as possible . . . it'll be perfect for the boat because it's made on the griddle! The possiblities are endless, add fresh herbs, sundried tomatoes . . . yum! This is an adaptation of Martha Stewart's recipe. Total time indicatesd includes rising.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, mix together yeast and 3/4 cup water; let stand 5 minutes.
  2. Add remaining 1/2 cup water, flour, sugar, salt, and olive oil; mix until a dough is formed.
  3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead until firm, about 5 minutes. (Or use your Kitchen Aid mixer to knead the dough).
  4. Lightly oil a large bowl and add dough.
  5. Cover with plastic wrap and keep in a warm place; let rise until dough has doubled in size, about 2 hours.
  6. Divide dough into 8, 2 oz. pieces.
  7. Roll each piece of dough out to an 1/8-inch-thick oblong circle; cover dough with a clean towel.
  8. Heat griddle over high heat and lightly coat with olive oil.
  9. Working with one piece of dough at a time, uncover and add to griddle. Cook flatbread until bubbling and brown, 40 seconds to 1 minute, then turn and continue cooking 20 seconds more.
  10. Remove flatbread from heat; wipe griddle clean.
  11. Repeat process with remaining pieces of dough.

Thanks so much for posting this recipe!! It's a winner. Followed recipe to a tee and the results were great. Now that I know it's a good recipe, I'll add some fresh herbs next time I make it.
