My friend Shulie started a series called Baking w/Heritage and I’m so happy she invited me to share the recipe for this flatbread my Grandma used to make it for us quite often.
I have lots of memories about my Grandma, but most of them involve bread baking. She loved baking bread for our big family. She’d start by sifting the flour in the big oval wooden bowl while we’d happily gather twigs for the wooden oven to heat it up. Most of the time a big chunk of the dough, after it had risen was made into fried doughnuts which we’d sprinkle heavily with sugar for a mid-week sweet snack and the rest of the dough was divided and rolled out to make bread. Carefully my Grandma would poke holes in the dough not to allow it to rise too much.
Although I like mine plain or just brushed with olive oil and sprinkled with nigella seeds, from time to time I love roasted tomatoes inside the bread while it bakes. The juices coming out of the grape tomatoes are keeping the bread soft, not soggy, and add lots of flavor.
