Soft Greek Flatbread

Note: This flat bread can be cooked and frozen for later use

Ingredients

2 teaspoons instant yeast

1 teaspoon raw sugar

2/3 cup warm water

1/2 cup warm milk ( not hot to tpich or it will kill the yeast )

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

1 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour

1 1/2 cups unbleached all purpose flour

3 tablespoons wheat gluten

Directions

1. In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer. Mix the yeast, sugar, water, milk, oil, and salt with a cup of flour and 1 tablespoon of wheat gluten

2. Gradually add the rest of the flour and wheat gluten until a dough is formed. Knead 6 to 8 minutes  until it is smooth and elastic. You want the dought to be slightly sticky.

3. Put dough in a greased bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let it rise in a warm place until doubled. It will take about 1 hour.

4. Punch the dough down. Divide into 6 to 8 pieces and cover. Let it rest for about 10 minutes so it will be easier to roll out.

5. Heat up your skillet on medium heat. One at a time roll each piece of dough out  into a 6 to 8 inch circle on a floured or greased countertop and cook on the skillet for 2 to 3 minutes on one side until puffy and bubbly and then flip and cook until golden and spotty abut 2 to 3 minutes more.

6. Place finished bread on a plate and cover with a towel to keep warm.Repeat with all the remaining pieces of dough. If you have a ectric skillet you can do more than one at a time.
