How to Make Flatbreads. Flatbreads are delicious, versatile alternatives to plain old sliced
bread, and you can make them yourself. You will need 1 3/4 tsp. dry active yeast 2 c.
warm water 2 tbsp. extra-*** olive oil, plus more for greasing 1 tbsp. sugar 1 tsp.
coarse salt 4 1/2 c. bread flour, plus more for dusting Equipment: Mixer with a dough
hook Pizza stone and parchment paper. Step 1. Combine the yeast and water in a mixing
bowl. Let the mix stand for five minutes -- until it's foamy. Step 2. Add the oil, sugar, and
salt to the yeast and water and mix everything at medium speed in the mixer using the dough
hook. Step 3. Reduce the mixer speed to low and add the flour a little bit at a time until
the dough comes together. Step 4. Place the dough on a lightly floured work surface and
knead it until it's smooth and elastic-like -- for 10 to 15 minutes. Step 5. Transfer
the dough to an oiled bowl and cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Refrigerate the dough for
at least four hours. You can make the dough and then refrigerate it overnight. Step 6.
Take the dough out of the refrigerator and bring it to room temperature. Preheat your
oven to 500 degrees Fahrenheit and place the pizza stone on the floor of the oven. Step
7. Portion the dough into four equal pieces and stretch each piece into 14-by-7-inch rectangles.
Place the rectangles on parchment paper. Step 8. Slide the parchment with the dough onto
the pizza stone. Bake the flatbreads for 10 to 12 minutes -- until they are golden brown.
Allow them to cool and then enjoy your delicious flatbreads. Did you know Yeast is a live,
