(Note from David: I haven't yet tried these recipes yet. I'm searching for a good one, and am sticking these two on the same page till I try them both. It was hard to find a recipe for Greek Flatbread that didn't involve the puffing up of the typical pita piece.)

You'll never buy flatbread again! This recipe has instructions for using a bread machine or making it from scratch.
|1 1/2 C.||warm water|
|1 1/2 Tbs||olive oil|
Let the yeast dissolve in the warm water and mix together the other ingredients. After a few minutes add the water and yeast. Knead until your arms feel like they are going to fall off. Let dough sit for about an hour.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. After dough is done turn out onto a piece of floured waxed paper. When working with yeasty dough be really careful not to overhandle it. You should always feel some bubbles under the dough surface. Gently and loosely roll dough into a long loaf. Should look similar to the french bread you buy in the deli. With a sharp knife divide the dough into about 9 equal pieces. Shape pieces into a ball and roll to about 1/4" thick. Place on oiled cookie sheet (about 2-3 flatbreads per sheet) and cook on bottom rack of the oven 3 minutes on each side.
Let cool to warm and place flatbreads in plastic bag to store until ready to use. Do not let them dry out! When you're ready to use them put a little olive oil on each side and grill or fry a few minutes on each side until soft and pliable.

|1/4 ounce||powdered yeast|
|2 tablespoons||olive oil|
