Why This Recipe Works
We wanted a flatbread recipe that would taste great and be easy enough for home cooks to make while dinner is cooking. We started with whole-wheat flour passed through a fine sieve to remove the rougher bran flakes. We combined the flour with yeast, warm water, olive oil, sugar, and yogurt in a food processor, and then hand-kneaded our dough for 15 minutes. A quick rise of 30 to 45 minutes was all our flatbread recipe required to produced tender yet chewy breads.
