Flat Bread

from Arabic Bites

This is a perfect complement to any meal. The bread is chewy and soft and would go well with anything. Ok, to be honest they are supposed to look much prettier and symmetrical than mine turned out. But if you could get past the freaky bumps, the bread was quite good.

2 cup warm Water
2 Tbsp Yeast
4 Tbsp Sugar
5 cups Flour (any kind)
1/4 cup Oil
2 tsp Salt

Preheat the oven to 550 (287 C). Mix the yeast, sugar and water. Once combined, slowly add in 2 cups of flour. Cover the bowl and let it rise for 10 minutes.

Then add in the remaining 3 cups of flour, oil and salt and knead for about 10 minutes. Divide the dough into 8 pieces, roll into little balls and flatten them into round discs. Place the dough onto a cookie sheet and bake for 2-3 minutes.

I kept getting distracted and so every other flat bread was a little over done. But they were still good, and this was a very simple recipe!
