I loved this bread from the first bite! I got to know it many years ago and was keep promising to myself that I will prepare it at some point. A barbecue was a great opportunity to finally fulfill that promise. The preparation of those was really easy and the result delicious. I got my recipe on this blog. Enjoy!

Ingredients (makes 8 portions, each Ø 15-20 cm):

500 g flour

7 g dry yeast or 21 g fresh ones

½ tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

4 tbsp natural yoghurt

110 g melted butter

Around 150 ml luke warm water

Additionally to sprinkle on top of breads: fresh garlic, rosemary, parsley, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, chopped up onion, sea salt, chilli

Mix flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Add yeast (if you use fresh ones, dissolve them first in a few spoons of warm water) and mix again.

Add yoghurt and 55 g (half) of butter. Gradually add water and knead till the dough becomes soft (might be that you will not use the entire amount of water).

Place the dough on the flour sprinkled surface and knead it around 8-10 minutes till it will be elastic and smooth.

Move the dough into a bowl, cover it with a kitchen cloth and set aside to rise in a warm place (1.5 –2 hrs). It should double in size.

After that time divide the dough into 8 portions, lightly knead and roll out thin, oval breads. At the end push some of the toppings onto them using the rolling pin.

Heat up dry pan and set a grill in the oven to the max temperature.

Place each piece of bread on the pan for 1-2 minutes till the bubbles appear on the surface and then move it to the oven and leave it there till it becomes brown. You have to be careful to not burn them.

Take out the bread from the oven, spread some butter on them and serve. They are the best while still warm.
