Mesquite Flatbread

No need to turn on the oven. No bread baking experience required. This recipe is so forgiving that if you have made bread before, you probably don’t even have to measure the ingredients.

Servings: people
Instructions
  1. Dissolve yeast in water.
  2. Mix in flours and salt until smooth, adding more flour as needed.
  3. Cover and let rest for an hour.
  4. Knead for 15 minutes, more or less.
  5. Pat a ball of dough or roll with a rolling pin until very thin.
  6. Dust with mesquite flour and put directly on preheated barbecue grill. Cover grill.
  7. After two minutes, check bread quickly (to avoid letting the heat escape).
  8. Cooking time will vary wildly based on the grill, but when puffed or browned on the bottom, flip the flatbread.
  9. Cook very briefly on the other side, remove from the grill and wrap in a tea towel.
  10. Steam from the inside will soften the crispy exterior to a flexible crust.
  11. To cook in the oven, place an inverted cookie sheet or pizza stone on the bottom of the oven or the lowest rack and preheat to 450°.
  12. Toss bread directly on the preheated sheet and cook as above.
