"The spices on this make it amazingly yummy and it is very easy to make. I cut the recipe in half and headed the warning of another reviewer and made sure my olives were not too big and started watching it at 15 minutes. At 17-18 minutes the edges were starting to look like they were trying to burn so pulled out and it looked perfectly well done and the edge I broke off was crisp and tasty. I made in the morning and let sit out till late afternoon / early evening at which point the edges were still crisp but the center had some tooth. I am thinking I need to prick the center with a fork to get the center crisper or make thicker so that it is chewier. Ok all that said we loved the flavor and thought it went well with Recipe #504362. Thanks for the post."
"I loved the spice combination and flavor. Unfortunately, it wasn't as as crisp as I was expecting. The end result was a little tough and chewy. This is probably my fault and not the recipe itself, as I may have over-mixed the dough. I will try this again; it was very yummy."
"This is easy to make. Liked the seasoning on the flatbread. Made Recipe #190952 #190952 by Sharon123 to go with it. Made for ZWT6 the No-Nonsense Nibblers."
"It was OK. The taste is good, but the texture was way off. If I baked them til deep golden brown, they would be burnt and inedible. I was expecting something soft and chewy, this turned out tough and hard to bite. I just baked the last few until lightly browned around the edges and they were ok to eat."
"I can't give this one a good rating unfortunately. It's the only "bad" recipe I've ever encountered from the catering duo of Dan Smith and Steve McDonagh. The bread is WAY too salty and the texture is tough, not the crisp and "toothsome" treat that good flatbread offers. Yes, it is extremely easy to make, but in this case ease doesn't redeem."
"This was very easy to make and very good! I took some left over chicken and sautÃ©ed some onions and peepers and added then on top with some feta cheese with 10 minutes left in the baking time...it was like one of those flatbreads you get at a high-end restaurant. I am now trying a new twist on it by substituting the olives for sun-dried tomatoes and basil. Thank you for the recipe and muse!"
"Loved this! Only thing I will do differently next time is to either cut the salt in the topping way down or leave it out all together. Super easy to make and so good! Thank you!"
"Very nice and very easy. This went together quickly and the texture and flavor was quite nice. Thanks for posting!"
"Loved this!! I had some problems rolling mine out nicely but I am not know to be a very tidy type of baker and all my things come out with a "rustic" quality that I pretend is intentional!!! The taste was amazing...I did not use quite all of the prepared spice mix...as I was sprinkling it suddenly seemed like I had put enough on - I did not find it at all too salty, it was just right (probably a matter of personal preference). I used the cup of all purpose flour but added whole wheat for the rest and had to add more than the 1 and 1/2 tablespoon (again, I did not really measure just eye balled it until the dough seemed to be right for forming.) Wonderful flavor...I love the olive touch and the suggested spices are fabulous together. Made for ZWT3 to go with some homemade hummus but it seems to be getting all ate up by itself!! ( the flavor is too good to "mask" with a dip of any sort!) Thanks so much for sharing...a winner!!! Now I have to learn how to get those perfect rectangular cut chips that AshK got!!!"
"A-Maz-Ing!! This bread is excellent! A little spicy, salty, and just the perfect flat bread texture. This is the first bread I have ever made by hand and we all just loved it. I will be making this again and again. Reviewed for ZWT3"
"Vicki...this bread is definitely a winner! My family and I couldn't get enough. I'm going to have to make this again right away. However, I will NOT put quite as much salt in the spice mixture. I LOVE the olives in it, but they DO need to be chopped small. I baked this on my baking stone, and ended up pulling it off the stone, and baking on the rack alone to get it crispy through and through. *Made for ZWT3 No. Africa Challenge ~ Moroccan Meal*"
"Easy to make, but do take the refridgeration time into consideration. I liked that this had a lot of flavor than most breads do. Delish! What I really enjoyed was the combination of the curry, olive, paprika and garlic seemed to "sing" in 4 part harmoney like a chamber choir. They worked so well together - it wasn't as if, in some recipes - when you have too many strong flavors- they seem to compete against each other. Wonderful! Thank you for sharing Sharon! **** MADE AND REVIEWED FOR ZAARTAG ****"
"This was a really interesting recipe that was fairly easy to put together. Unfortunately, my dough was really sticky, and I had to knead it in many handfuls of flour to get it to hold together. The original 1 cup of flour should probably just be increased. I refrigerated this for 2 hours, and then it was easy to work with. The texture of this is pretty interesting. The outer parts were very brittle and the inner parts were more pliable. I'm not sure which it should be, but I like the more pliable parts better. The salt could probably be reduced in the spice mixture, as the olives themselves were a little salty. Made by a Tasty Tester for ZWT9."
