Recipe Directions for Basil Flatbread

  1. Combine flour, salt and basil in a large bowl.

  2. Stir in water and oil until dough comes together.

  3. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth, about 5 minutes, dusting surface lightly with flour as needed.

  4. Place dough in an oiled bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and let rest for 30 minutes at room temp or up to 2 hours in the fridge.

  5. Heat a 10" to 12" cast iron or other heavy skillet over medium heat until a drop of water sizzles off on contact.

  6. On a lightly floured surface, divide the dough into 6 portions.

  7. Roll each piece into 8" round, put in the heated skillet and cook until golden brown spots appear on the bottom and the bread begins to puff, 1- 2 minutes.

  8. Flip the bread, and cook until spots appear, then transfer to a plate (cover with a towel to keep warm).

  9. Repeat the cooking process with the remaining 5 dough portions.
