Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups warm water (105 degrees F to 115 degrees F)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 3 1/4-3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Cornmeal
  • Desired toppers (see recipes below; each recipe makes enough to top 1 flatbread)

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, combine the warm water, olive oil, yeast, and sugar. Stir to dissolve yeast. Let stand about 10 minutes or until foamy.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine 2 3/4 cups of the flour and the salt. Stir yeast mixture into flour mixture until combined. Using a wooden spoon, stir in as much of the remaining flour as you can.
  3. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead in enough of the remaining flour to make a soft dough that is smooth and elastic (3 to 5 minutes).
  4. Place dough in an oiled bowl, turning once to grease surface of dough. Cover and let rise in a warm place until double in size (45 to 60 minutes).
  5. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Punch down dough. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface. Divide dough into nine equal portions. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Roll each portion into a 94-inch oval. (Cover remaining dough while working so it does not dry out.)
  6. Sprinkle a baking sheet with cornmeal. Place three of the ovals, crosswise, on the prepared baking sheet. Top each oval with a desired topper. Bake about 10 minutes or until golden. Repeat with the remaining dough ovals.
