     Turkish Flatbread

Category   Desserts - Breads
Sub Category   None
Servings   1 loaf

approx. 2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tblsp evoo
1-2 tsp sea salt
1 sm package yeast
about 1 1/4 cup lukewarm water
1 tsp sesame seeds

1. Mix the flour and salt together and set aside. 2. Whisk the yeast into the water in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the dough hook. Wait 2 minutes, then whisk again to make sure itís completely dissolved. Whisk in the oil.
3. Stir in about half the flour mixture until smooth, then stir in the rest. Beat on medium speed until fairly smooth, about 3 minutes. Stop the mixer and let the dough rest for 10 minutes. 4.Beat on low speed again until the dough is smoother and somewhat elastic, about 3 additional minutes 5.Scrape the dough into an oiled bowl and turn it over (itís very soft, so itís best to use a flexible scraper) so that the top is oiled. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Let the dough rest until it starts to puff, 15 to 20 minutes.
6. Scrape the dough to a lightly floured work surface. Pat and stretch the dough into a rectangle 3 times longer than it is wide. Fold one third of the dough over the middle section, then fold the other side over that. 7. Turn the dough 90 degrees and repeat stretching and folding. 8.Return the dough to the bowl (it may be necessary to oil the bowl again) and turn it over so that the top is oiled. Cover with plastic wrap and let the dough rise until it has doubled in size, about 30 minutes.
9. The soft dough might be difficult to shape, so flour the work surface well to prevent sticking. Form large flatbreads on a rimless cookie sheet, flexible cutting board, or piece of stiff cardboard to facilitate transfer to the pan. 10. Preheat oven to 425 F. Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes. Mist with water 3 times in the first 15 minutes. Loaves are done when their bottoms sound hollow when tapped. Let cool on wire racks before serving.
