Grilled Flatbread

Finally the weather is warming up! One of my favorite things about Spring and Summer is grilling.  Grilled Flatbread is so easy and versatile, don't let the thought of grilling dough scare you off from trying this recipe.  Making flatbread on the grill adds a wonder flavor to the bread.  And I love being able to cook the entire meal on the grill to minimize running in and out of the house during meal prep time. 

Flatbread Recipe

1 T. quick rise yeast
1 cup lukewarm water
1 tsp.salt 
1 tsp. sugar
1 T. olive oil
3 cups flour
1 additional cup lukewarm water

In a mixer or food processor, Mix yeast and 1 cup water, allow it to set for a few minutes. Add salt, sugar, olive oil and flour.  Then slowly add more water.  You may not need the entire cup.  It varies each time you make the recipe.  Just add enough so the dough is moist, but not sticky. Cover and allow it to rise for about an hour.  Then spread out on oiled baking sheet.  I divide it in two pieces, so it is easier to manage on the grill.  

 2-3 T olive oil
herb of your choice, I use dried italian seasoning when I don't have fresh herbs on hand
1 tsp. minced garlic

Coat one side on dough and place on preheated grill. Cook until firm and it has good grill marks. Coat other side with topping and flip, again grill until cooked through and it has good grill marks.  

We enjoy eating as a side with meals, with hummus or marinara sauce or turn them into pizzas. So YUMMY!
