READY IN: 2hrs 10mins




  • In a large bowl, mix together yeast and 3/4 cup water; let stand 5 minutes.
  • Add remaining 1/2 cup water, flour, sugar, salt, and olive oil; mix until a dough is formed.
  • 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).
  • Lightly oil a large bowl and add dough.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and keep in a warm place; let rise until dough has doubled in size, about 2 hours.
  • Divide dough into 8, 2 oz. pieces.
  • Roll each piece of dough out to an 1/8-inch-thick oblong circle; cover dough with a clean towel.
  • Heat griddle over high heat and lightly coat with olive oil.
  • 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.
  • Remove flatbread from heat; wipe griddle clean.
  • Repeat process with remaining pieces of dough.
