  • Portion size 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pinch granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cups warm water
  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon quick-rising yeast
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried mint
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano

Method

Grease rimless baking sheet; set aside.

In large bowl, dissolve sugar in warm water. Sprinkle in yeast; let stand until frothy, about 10 minutes. Whisk in 2 tbsp (25 mL) of the oil. Stir in flour, about 1/4 cup (50 mL) at a time, and salt to form sticky dough.

Turn out onto lightly floured surface; knead until smooth, 5 minutes. Place in greased bowl, turning to grease all over; cover and let rise in warm draft-free place until doubled in bulk, about 1-1/2 hours.

Turn out dough onto lightly floured surface; press fingertips into dough to create dimples. Gently stretch into 15- x 6-inch (38 x 15 cm) rectangle. Transfer to prepared pan. Cover and let rise in warm draft-free place until nearly doubled in bulk, about 45 minutes.

Bake in centre of 400°F (200°C) oven for 13 minutes. Meanwhile, in small bowl, stir remaining oil, garlic and mint; brush over flatbread. Bake until light golden around edges, about 5 minutes.
