Aleppo Thin Flatbread

Crispy and spicy. We basically love anything that has to do with bread. We topped off this homemade flatbread with an aleppo pepper sauce mix, one of our favorite Middle Eastern spices to play with. The aleppo pepper is mildly spicy, fruity and oily with a flavor that is out of this world.

Preheat the oven at 180°C.


Dissolve the yeast into the water and let it sit for roughly 5 minutes.


Gradually, add the yeast mixture to the flour, reserving some of it for dusting and kneading. Mix well, season it with salt and start kneading the dough onto a clean work surface. Sprinkle with more flour and continue adding as needed to get an elastic, workable dough.


Shape into a ball and place it into a bowl. Cover with a towel and let it rest for 20-30 minutes.


Deflate the dough and divide it into 10-12 pieces. Flatten each piece with your hands and place them onto a lined baking tray.


Mix the olive oil with the Aleppo pepper and sumac to make a delicious paste. Add dollops of the paste on each flatbread and spread evenly.


Bake for 8-10 minutes until golden brown. Serve sprinkled with fresh parsley leaves!
