Flatbread

 

MOZZARELLA AND TOMATO-BASIL CAPRESE FLATBREAD


Makes 1 Serving

  • 1/12 recipe (1 serving) Basic Flatbread Dough (see below)
  • 1 Tbsp. Herb Pesto (see below)
  • 4 thin slices Roma tomato (about half of an average-sized Roma tomato)
  • 2 Tbsp. thinly sliced mozzarella cheese
  • 3 fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced

PREHEAT the oven to 400°F.

PLACE one flatbread dough round on a work surface. Spoon the pesto sauce over the dough, spreading to coat evenly, and layer with the remaining ingredients. Place the flatbread on a baking sheet and bake until the dough is crisp and the cheese is melted, about 10 minutes.

TRANSFER the flatbread to a cutting board, cut into four wedges, and serve immediately.

BASIC FLATBREAD DOUGH


Makes 12 Servings

  • 1 c. warm water, not above 110°F
  • 1 Tbsp. active dry yeast
  • 1/4 c. extra-virgin olive oil, plus 1 tsp. to grease the bowl
  • 1/4 c. honey or agave syrup
  • 2 c. whole-wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 c. semolina flour
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt

COMBINE the water, yeast, 1/4 cup of the oil, and the honey in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook, and let the mixture sit until foamy, 5 to 10 minutes.

STIR together the flour, semolina, and salt in a medium bowl.

WITH the machine on low speed, slowly add the flour mixture one-half cup at a time to the yeast mixture. After all the dry ingredients have been added, continue to mix the dough on low speed for 5 minutes.

LIGHTLY oil a large bowl with 1 tsp. oil and place the dough inside. Cover the dough with plastic wrap, and let sit until almost double in size, about 1 hour.

TURN out the dough onto a lightly floured work surface, and divide into 12 equal portions. One at a time, roll out each portion to 1/4" in thickness.

USE as directed in the recipe.
