Greek Flatbread
 
by sackville girl 
 
a few simple ingredients give you one amazing bread. you can also add your 
own mixture of herbs into this bread... maybe a bit of oregano or 
coriander 
 
500 strong white bread flour
300 millileters  warm water
7 powdered
  yeast 1 teaspoon salt
2 Tbsp  olive oil
 
6 large  flatbreads
 
mix the flour, salt and yeast together and then stir in the warm 
water and olive oil to make a soft dough. transfer to a floured 
surface and knead for five minutes until springy, using extra flour if 
it's too sticky. shape into a ball, brush over a little more oil, 
cover and leave to rise in a warm place until it doubles in 
size. this should take about an hour. knead again on a floured 
surface and divide into six pieces, rolling each chunk into a 
ball. leave to rise for 10 minutes. preheat the oven to 240 c or 
475 f .meanwhile, roll the balls flat until they're only 3mm or 1/8 
of an inch thick and about 17cm or 7 inches across. place on greased 
baking sheets, cover with a tea towel and let rest for 30 
minutes. spray the dough with water and bake for two 
minutes. check to make sure they haven't gone hard and if not, bake 
for a couple minutes more. you want them firm but not hard or 
brown. remove from the oven and serve immediately with dips or as a 
wrap for all sorts of fillings .great with kebabs! 
 
if you must 
serve them later, you can brush them lightly with oil and then reheat 
them by briefly heating them in a frying pan. 
 
stephanie in pittsburgh so good!!!! i was making it for a lemon-cumin 
bread salad, so i added about a 1/2 teaspoon each of cumin, yellow curry 
powder, and coriander. the ones that i rolled out thin puffed up like pita 
bread and the ones that were a little thicker than recommended were more 
like the flatbread they serve gyros on. all of it was soooo good! i may 
never buy pita bread again.
