304 calories for 1 flatbread

  • Yield: 1 serving


  • 1 cup(s) boiling water
  • 1/3 cup(s) yellow cornmeal
  • 1 package(s) dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup(s) warm water (100 to 110 degrees)
  • 2 cup(s) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 2 teaspoon(s) olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon(s) yellow cornmeal, divided


1. Combine boiling water and 1/3 c. cornmeal in a bowl; let stand 20 min., stirring

occasionally. Dissolve yeast in warm water in a small bowl, and let stand 5 min.

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine

cornmeal mixture, flour, and salt in a food processor, and pulse 4 times or until

blended. With processor on, slowly add yeast mixture and oil through food chute;

process until dough forms a ball. Process 1 aditional minute. Turn dough out

onto a floured surface, and knead lightly 4-5 times (dough will feel tacky).

2. Place dough in a bowl coated with cooking spray, turning to coat top. Cover; let

rise in a warm place (85 degrees), free from drafts, 1 hour or until doubled in size.

(Press two fingers into dough. If indentation remains, the dough has risen


3. Punch dough down; cover and lety rest 5 min. Divide dough into 4 equal

portions, shaping each into a ball (cover remaining dough while working to

prevent it from drying).

4. Roll each ball into a 10x6" oval. Place 2 olvals on a baking sheet lightly dusted

with 1-1/2 tsp. cornmeal. Repeat procedure with remaining 2 ovals on an

additional baking sheet lightly dusted with 1-1/2 teaspoons cornmeal. Add

toppings and bake accorning to recipe directions.

NOTE: If you use whole-grain cornmeal, which still contains some of the hull and

germ of the dried corn kernel, you'll need to increase the flour to 2-1/4 cups.
