Other day my family wanted to eat cajun flatbread pizza. It is really yummy. It’s basically sautéed onions, cajun sausage, spicy barbecue sauce and sharp cheddar cheese. Unfortunately, we did not have any flat bread. My hubby was about to go and run out to the store and buy some, when I yelled, Stop!!! As though he was committing a crime. I will make the flatbread from scratch in my Super “Mama” Hero voice. LOL.
Very easy! The funny thing is when I posted it on Facebook my friend from India asked me, “Is that Roti.” NO! It is Flat bread. My friend who is spanish asked me, “Is that Tortilla?” NO! It is flatbread. But hey it can be whatever you like.
Here is the recipe. This is a no yeast flatbread.
Enjoy! Remember to Set the Table with Love.
Italian Herb infused Flat bread
- 1 3/4 cup organic all-purpose flour
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 cup vegetable shortening
- 3 cloves, crushed garlic, Finely crushed
- 1/2 tbsp Italian herb blend ( I used a blend with a grinder, to get bigger chunks of herbs)
- 1/2 cup hot water
Preheat a dry cast iron or non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Place the flatbread in the hot pan and cook for one minute, or until small air bubbles appear. Flip over and cook for another minute. Flip again for about another minute. During this last flip you will notice the bread puffing up, this is what you want to see. You also want small charred spots to form on the bread as well.
Remove immediately from the hot pan onto a platter. You are ready to enjoy your flatbread, roti, tortilla? But never the less, Enjoy. They can be kept warm in the oven if you are not serving them all at once.
