Grilled Flat Bread
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.
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.
