Daring to do it: Crispy Flatbreads

Was there some sort of secret meeting I should have known about for bking adventures thi month?  First Sourdough Surprises, then the Daring Bakers!!  :)

Sarah from All Our Fingers in the Pie was our February 2013 Daring Bakers’ host and she challenges us to use our creativity in making our own Crisp Flatbreads and Crackers! Smile

When I fist saw this challenge I was almost let down.  I was already planning flatbread for Sourdough Surprises, and we had so recently done a crackers challenge for Daring Bakers.  How was this going to manage to be different? 
Well, it might now have been terribly different, but it certainly was yummy and fun!As I have said before, I love bread, and flatbreads especially.  Sarah provided us with some fabulous recipes to choose from, but I chose this one for quick crisp flatbreads, since it sounded like a yummy accompaniment for the planned dinner of salad.

The dry ingredients, with dried herbs: basil, marjoram and sage:
Adding the liquid to the well: (Big Girl was very interested in the idea of  well there...!)
The kneaded dough, divided in four parts:
Rolling the dough as thinly as I could.  I loved the tip of rolling directly on the parchment paper.  Amazing how much hassle it alleviated!
Pre-cut, brushed with olive oil, sprinkles with Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper:
Straight from the oven:
Salad toppers:
Big Girl just wanted to dip hers!
Thank you, Sarah, for a fun challenge with such tasty treats!  My biggest problem is that these are highly addictive - I just keep going back to the container and snacking on them!
Please treat yourself by seeing what my fellow Daring Bakers created this month.


  1. It is dangerous that such tasty snacks can be made so easily at home, isn't it?

    These look very tasty!

  2. The recipe I made was really similar to this, minus the herbs - really good, right? The salad and flatbread combo looks yummy! ~ Korena

  3. I love the picture with the salad and flat bread! I am tempted to make some for lunch today!

  4. I know, it was so similar to the other challenge. I thought perhaps mine would not be used (it was written months ago). But glad we did it. Great job. Thanks for participating in this challenge.

  5. Both this recipe and the sourdough ones are perfect for this! I really like the sound of the sourdough version and will be adding to my "to do" list. Best, Sandie
