Grilled Flatbreads

Your favorite toppings meet the grill.. and it's a good thing!
Complexity Level:  Intermediate
Grilled Flatbreads
What You Need:
1 tbsp Active Yeast
5 cups Flour
Hot (100 degrees Fahrenheit) Water
Olive Oil
Your Choice Toppings*

In a large bowl, mix 1 cup hot water + 1 tbsp of active dry yeast and 1/2 cup Flour.  Mix and set aside for 10 minutes.

After 10 minutes, whisk together 1 tsp salt, 2 cups water, and 2 tbsp olive oil.  Pour this into the yeast mixture, then blend in the remaning flour until the dough is stretchy and hardly sticky.  Cover with a wet towel and let rise 1-2 hours at room temp.  Knead the dough after rising for 2 minutes, then let rise a second time.  Make sure the bowl has olive oil in it to coat the dough (about 1 tbsp).

Toss or roll your dough into 12 inch rounds.  Place on grill and cook 2 minutes on each side.  This is a quick process, so do not close the grill, but rather watch the dough and spin to create grill lines and reduce darkening.

To bake on toppings, place the grilled flatbread on a baking sheet and top as desired.  Place pan on gril, cover and bake 5-6 minutes.  This is great for desserts as well!
