40 small flatbreads



  • 8 teaspoons active dry yeast

  • 1 teaspoon white sugar

  • 1 cup warm water

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour


  • 7 cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 cups lukewarm water

  • 2 tablespoons lukewarm water

  • 6 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • 1 teaspoon butter, or as needed


  1. Dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Let stand in a warm place until frothy, about 10 minutes. Stir in flour. Cover sponge with plastic wrap and let rise for 30 minutes.

  2. Place flour in a large bowl and make a well in the center. Pour in sponge. Add 2 cups plus 2 tablespoons lukewarm water, olive oil, and salt. Gradually work in the flour to make a soft and sticky dough.

  3. Knead the dough on a floured surface for 15 minutes. Grease a large bowl with butter and add dough. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.

  4. Divide dough into quarters. Cut each quarter into 10 pieces; shape each piece into a ball. Cover balls of dough and let rest for 30 minutes.

  5. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

  6. Shape each ball of dough into a circle by flattening dough and stretching it. Arrange 2 inches apart on the baking sheets.

  7. Bake in the preheated oven until puffed up and golden, about 10 minutes.
