February 14, 2021  Online Recipe Guide Avatar

Use these Grilled Flat Breads to make pita sandwiches, or serve with barbecued meat or chicken, or with salads with hummus spread on top. This also makes a great pizza crust! See Make-Ahead directions at bottom of the recipe.

Yield: 16
Cook Time: 4 minute s
Proof Time: 60-90 minute s
Special Items: To Be Grilled On Barbecue 3-5 Minutes Per Side

1 teaspoon sugar
2 cups warm water (100°to 110°F)
1 envelope Fleischmann’s Active Dry Yeast
5 to 5-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon salt

In a large bowl, dissolve sugar and yeast in warm water and let stand 10 minutes. Add 2 cups flour, oil, and salt. Beat with electric mixer until batter is smooth, about 3 minutes. Stir in enough of the remaining flour to make a stiff dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. Place dough in a large greased bowl, turning to coat. Cover and let rise in a warm, draft-free place until almost doubled in bulk, about 1 to 1-1/2 hours.

Preheat grill to medium-low.

Punch dough down and divide into 2 parts; return 1 part to the bowl and cover. Divide remaining part into 8 pieces. Using lightly floured hands, pat out one piece of dough at a time on a floured board, into a 6-inch circle (1/8 to 1/4-inch thick). Spray both sides of each circle with cooking spray. Place on hot grill. Close grill lid and grill 3 to 5 minutes, until lightly browned on bottom. Turn and grill an additional 3 to 5 minutes. Repeat with remaining dough. If using for pitas, cut flat breads in half and open up “pocket” with sharp knife.

Make-Ahead Tips: After rolling dough into circles, place on baking sheets lined with plastic wrap (circles may be stacked, using plastic wrap to separate). Keep refrigerated up to 3 hours before cooking.

Whole wheat flat breads can be made by substituting 2 cups whole wheat flour for part of the all-purpose flour.

For additional flavor, sprinkle flat breads with garlic salt and Italian seasoning.

Flat breads may be frozen after baking.
