Crispy Beer Flat Bread

Recipe by Thorsten
READY IN: 30mins




  • Preheat oven (480-490 F, 250-260 C). Put the baking tray into the oven. So it will be heated up, too.
  • Mix olive oil and garlic and set aside.
  • Sieve flour with salt and add beer. Mix with hands until dough is formed. Knead dough for 5 minutes with slightly floured hands. Let rest dough for about 10 minutes.
  • On a slightly floured working platform, roll out the dough with a rolling pin. It should be thin (if you like the bread very crispy roll out the dough very thin). Place the dough on baking paper (size of the baking tray).
  • Brush the dough with the olive oil. Sprinkle it with herbs (you could use more or less than 1 tablespoon).
  • Put dough (on baking paper) on the baking tray in the oven and bake for about 5 - 10 minutes until it is golden brown. During baking the bread will develop several "bubbles".
  • Take out of the oven and let cool on a cooling rack. Serve slightly warm or cool.
  • NOTE on herbs: use your favorite herbs. If you like the herbal flavors you can use more. But you could also leave them out completely. You could also use an "Italian herbs mixes". You can also use fresh herbs (if at hand).
  • NOTE on olive oil: I only use the oil for brushing and don't use the garlic in it. If you like a garlicky styled bread, you can use the garlic for brushing, too.
