Grilled Flatbread

  1. To make the sponge, dissolve the yeast in warm water. Stir in honey.

  2. Add the bread flour & mix to make a firm dough. Cover & set on top of an oven to proof. It’s ready for the next step when it begins to fall.

  3. To make the dough, place the sponge in a mixer bowl with the dough hook attachment. Add sugar, salt & water then mix. Add all but a ½ cup of flour, until a dough has formed.

  4. Add shortening & the ½ cup of flour. Knead until smooth, soft elastic dough. Cover & rest for a few minutes.

  5. Weigh 5 ounce portions of dough. Roll into balls. Let rest while covered with a damp towel.

  6. Roll dough into an oval shape. Make sure cornmeal is underneath rolled out dough so it doesn’t stick.

  7. Bake on plancha or in hearth oven. Not dry and no color.
