Description

These yeast flatbreads are reminiscent to pita pockets with an Italian twist. Made with just 4 easy ingredients--warm water, yeast, flour, and salt--these flatbreads are cooked in a heavy bottomed pot until puffed and golden, the flatbread are then sliced horizontally and filled with fresh arugula and fontina cheese. Baked until melty and golden, this is a dish best served warm. Serve with a side salad or as a side with a dinner of grilled chicken.

Ingredients

315 milliliters warm water
2 teaspoons active dry yeast (instant)
500 grams bread flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon olive oil
fontina cheese
arugula
ground black pepper

Directions

1Pour out 200 milliliters of the warm water and add the yeast to it.
2In a large bowl, pour in the flour and salt. Make a well in the center and pour in the oil and the yeasty water.
3Start mixing and kneading the dough together, adding the rest of the water little by little until you get a ball that is no longer sticky and is now firm.
4Divide the dough into 8 sections. Roll each section into a ball, cover with a moist cloth, and let rest 30 minutes.
5Roll out each section into a 1/2-centimeter circle.
6Heat a heavy-bottomed pot on medium heat for 10 minutes until very hot.
7Without oiling the pot, add a piece of the dough and let cook a few minutes. Flip and continue cooking. Adjust the heat level, making sure the dough does not burn. You will know they are done when they have puffed a bit and are golden.
8Transfer the hot bread to a waiting towel and repeat with the rest of the dough.
9When the bread has cooled enough to handle, slice horizontally and fill with cheese, arugula, and black pepper.
10Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius
11Bake the breads about 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
