Homemade Flatbreads with Vegan Mascarpone, San Marzano Port Wine Pizza Sauce, Chanterelles and Edible Flowers
I've got a bone to pick with a certain American media gossip hound, but before I start my kvetching, I'll talk a little about all of the lovely goodness that is happening in Jane and my world right now.
Homemade Flatbreads with Vegan Mascarpone,
San Marzano Port Wine Pizza Sauce, Chanterelles and Edible Flowers
For the Flatbread Dough:
1 cup warm water
1 package active dry yeast
2 1/2 to 3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
Combine the water, yeast, and 1 1/2 cups of the flour in a large bowl. Mix well. Add the oil, salt, and remaining flour. With large wooden spoon or your hands mix the ingredients together until the dough holds its shape. You may need a bit less flour, so add the last half gradually.
Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. If the dough becomes sticky, sprinkle a bit more flour over it.
Transfer the dough to a lightly oiled 2-quart bowl. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a kitchen towel, and let the dough rest until it has doubled in size, about 1 hour.
When the dough has risen, place it on a lightly floured surface, divide it into two or more parts and roll them into balls. Cover them with a towel and let rest for 15 minutes. The dough is ready to be shaped, topped and cooked.
Pre-heat your oven to 425 degrees F. Once all your toppings are prepared, lightly grease a pan with olive oil, stretch out the dough into a long, rectangular shape, top with toppings, then bake 10-15 minutes until the crust is brown underneath.
