I love making my own homemade pizza dough, so I figured it was about time I made my own flatbread as well!
Flatbread is the thin and crispy sibling of pizza that is perfect for topping with a number of delicious ingredients! I made this homemade basil flatbread as the base for my Grilled Peach Flatbread with Goat Cheese and Balsamic Reduction. The result was crisp perfection!
- 1 package active yeast
- ½ tsp sugar
- 1 ¾ cup bread flour
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- ¼ cup fresh basil
- ¾ cup water
- 1 tbsp olive oil
Combine the yeast, sugar, flour, salt and basil in a large bowl. Pour the water in and mix until a solid ball forms.
Coat another large bowl with the olive oil, then place the dough inside. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise for 1 hour in a warm place.
After the dough has risen, punch the dough down then place on a floured surface and knead for 5-7 minutes.
Roll the dough into 3 or 4 flatbreads (depending on how big or small you would like them, I made 3.)
Place on a grill over medium-high heat for 8-10 minutes.
Flip and grill for an additional 8-10 minutes or until the bread begins to brown and bubble.
