Tips on Handling dough:

  • You can make this recipe in either your stand mixer or in a large mixing bowl by hand. This is a soft dough that requires only a little kneading.
  • Even a stand mixer that can’t handle heavy bread dough should be able to work this dough without overheating the motor.
  • Do NOT use an electric hand mixer. If will just ball up and over heat. Not good for the dough or the mixer.
  • Use your lightly floured rolling pin to roll the ball of dough to avoid stickiness.
  • Flour your hands when you form the dough into your baking sheet.

Cooking Flatbread Options:

  1. This flatbread dough can be baked raw with all the toppings on top. No need to bake the flatbread first.
  2. You can also cook this flatbread without toppings on a griddle. If you have toppings or fillings you don’t want to bake try this method rather than baking.
