Ingredients

For flatbread

  • 2 cups flour
  • Dash of sugar
  • 1 package yeast
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¾ cup warm water

Topping

  • 16 tablespoons pesto
  • 16 slices fresh mozzarella
  • 16 tablespoons sun dried tomatoes

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, yeast and salt.
  • Heat water to 120-130 degrees and add it to the flour mixture.
  • Mix to form into dough,
  • Knead on a floured surface and form into a ball.
  • Cover the dough and let it rise for an hour until it has doubled in size.
  • Return dough to a floured surface and divide into 8-10 equal portions.
  • Roll out each portion so it is fairly thin and 6-7 inches in diameter.
  • Cook dough on a hot grill for 2-3 minutes on each side. Turn flatbread over when the dough starts getting darker and appears cooked.
  • When the bread is cooked, remove from grill and spread on pesto. Cover with sliced mozzarella and sun dried tomatoes.
  • Return to grill and set heat to low. Shut the cover and leave the flatbread in for a few minutes until the cheese starts to melt.
