  • Serves 4

Flatbread can be made 2 days ahead and cooled completely, then kept in an airtight container at room temperature.

Options: Replace rosemary with cilantro, add raw garlic clove, peeled and minced.

  1. Preheat oven to 450˚F with a heavy baking sheet on middle rack.

  5. Coat your hands with flour and knead dough gently on a work surface 4 or 5 times.

    I have made these many times. They are delicious. I usually serve them with soup. They will keep for at least a few days, too. Thanks for the recipe!
