Whether you're after a pitta, bread accompaniment or something a bit different to a sandwich - these flatbreads are for you!
They're super easy to make and cook quickly in a frying pan. You could also give these a try on a griddle pan for some eye-catching char-marks!
Prep time: 2 hours
Cook time: 10 mins
Special equipment needed:
1 tsp sugar
2 tsp yeast
350g Bread Flour
1 tbsp Salt
1 tbsp Cracked Black Pepper
1 tbsp Olive Oil
Combine the milk, water, sugar and yeast in a bowl, stir and leave until it becomes frothy. This is the yeast activating and in a warm place should take 15-30 minutes
In a separate bowl, mix the flour, pepper and salt
When the yeast is active, add the olive oil to the yeast mixture
Gradually add the wet mix to the flour mixture, stirring until a dough ball forms
Lightly flour your work surface and tip the dough out onto it
Knead the dough ball for 10 minutes until smooth then place in a covered, greased bowl until it has doubled in size (about an hour should do it)
One the dough has risen, knock the air from it with a couple of firm punches
Separate the dough into 6 equal portions. Let these portions rest for 15 minutes
Shape the flatbreads by rolling each out into 10” ovals about 5mm thick, pressing out any air bubbles
Cook the flatbreads in a hot, lightly oiled frying pan for up to 3 minutes each side, until they are charred on both sides but still have a soft, bouncy texture in the middle
enjoy these however you see fit and remember, anyone can cook!
