FlatbreadI recently went to Subway and for the first time got a sammich (Spicy Italian) with their flatbread. Loved the bread, and naturally wondered if I could do it at home. There are a number of recipes online, all quite similar, yet none of them had any fat in the bread. So I put together my own version and we grilled it up last night.


1 C warm water
2.5 tsp yeast
1/4 c sugar
1 egg
3 T milk
1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp thyme leaves chopped
4 C flour
2-3 Tbsp olive oil

  • Put the dry ingredients (flour, yeast, sugar, salt, thyme) into mixing bowl.
  • Stir wet ingredients together till egg is broken up.
  • Pour wet ingredients into dry and mix till a smooth ball forms
  • Put dough ball into oiled bowl and cover with a towel. Let rise for 30 minutes
  • Light the coals in the chimney and prep the grill
  • Punch down and divide into 4-8 balls, depending on how large you want the flats to be
  • Rest balls 5 minutes then roll out to 1/4″ thickness or a wee bit less
  • Grill the flatbreads, turning after the bubbles form on the top (2-3 minutes each side)
  • I found it helpful to move the flatbreads to the cooler side of the grill for a few minutes to be certain they were baked through.

I thought this was excellent with grill roasted turkey and cheese. The kids pulled the turkey and cheese off and made a meal of just the bread!
