How to Bake Crispy Flat Bread

Yields: 10

Preparation time: 30 mins

Cooking time: 20 mins

Ingredients needed to make Crispy Flat Bread:

  • 6 oz all purpose flour
  • 6 oz whole-wheat flour
  • 1 tsp active dry yeast
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp sugar

For the topping:

  • 1 egg white
  • Sesame seeds
  • Poppy seeds
  • 1 tbsp water, optional

Cooking instructions for Crispy Flat Bread:

  • Soak the yeast in a small bowl with warm water and dissolve the sugar into it.
  • Give them a nice stir until they dissolve, place a lid on top and let the mixture stand for 10 minutes or until it froths up.
  • Mix both the flours in a separate bowl, along with a dash of salt, until well combined and pour in the active yeast mixture.
  • Add splashes of water into the mixture and knead them together into a soft dough.
  • Place it onto a lightly-floured surface and knead it for 10 minutes to make more smooth and pliant.
  • Transfer it into a bowl and spray some water over it to make it moist.
  • Cover and set aside in a warm place for an hour to allow the dough to rise to twice its size.
  • Meanwhile, warm up your oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Return the dough onto the floured surface and knock it down with your knuckles to deflate it.
  • Split it into 10 equal portions and roll each of them into a small ball.
  • Roll one dough ball into a very thin sheet and lay it out flat onto a baking sheet.
  • Make rest of them using remaining dough and arrange them onto baking sheets, so that their edges don’t overlap.
  • Whisk the egg white slightly, along with a tbsp of water, to form egg wash and brush it all over the dough sheets.
  • Sprinkle the sesame seeds on top, followed by the poppy seeds and transfer the baking sheets into the hot oven.
  • Bake them for 20 minutes or until the flat breads crisp up and turn golden.
  • Remove from the oven and set aside until cool enough to handle.
  • Break them into smaller pieces and serve.
