Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

This is a great multi-use flat bread.  Enjoy it by itself, with soup, with hummus or use your imagination.  Can be made plain, as below, or add a clove of minced garlic in to the flour before adding wet ingredients.

  1 Tsp Yeast                                                                              1 Cup All Purpose Flour
  1/2 Tsp Sugar                                                                           1/2 Tsp Salt
  1/2 Cup Water, Warm                                                              1/4 Cup Olive Oil

Combine warm water, yeast and sugar in a small cup.  Set aside to proof, about 5 minutes.  In another bowl, sift together salt and flour.  Add the yeast mixture and oil and mix together by hand until a soft dough forms.  Add additional flour as necessary.  Knead for 3 minutes.  Oil a small bowl with additional olive oil, place the dough in the bowl, turning to coat.  Cover and let rest until double in size.

Divide dough into 6 pieces and gently roll into flat circles on a lightly floured surface and set aside until cooking surface is ready.

To Cook:
Oven Method:  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Bake on baking stone or lightly greased baking sheet about 12 minutes.

Grill Method:  Heat grill to high heat.  Lightly oil grill and place dough on grill.  Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, brush raw side with  melted butter or more oil, turn and cook an additional 3 to 5 minutes until browned.

Indoor Grill Method:  Place grill (Wolfgang Puck, Cuisinart, etc) in flat configuration.  Heat to 400 degrees.  Cook per Grill instructions.
