Grilled Flatbread

Depending on the humidity, you may have to add or subtract a tablespoon of water when making the dough in step 1; it should have a smooth but slightly sticky consistency.

Grilled Flatbread


Source: Martha Stewart Living, September 1998


  • 1/2 cup warm water (100 degrees to 110 degrees)
  • 1/2 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for bowl and brushing
  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste


  1. Heat a grill or grill pan until hot. Place water in a medium bowl, and sprinkle yeast on top; stir to dissolve. Let sit until foamy, about 10 minutes. Add olive oil, flour, and salt; combine. Turn dough out onto a well-floured surface, and knead until smooth and elastic, 1 to 2 minutes. Place in a lightly oiled bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and let stand in a warm place for 30 minutes.

  2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide into four equal pieces, and roll out each into a 1/8-inch-thick round. Lightly brush both sides of each round with olive oil, and place the rounds directly on the hot grill. Grill the flatbread until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Remove from grill, and season with salt.

    Fixed this yesterday and doubled the recipe....used semolina flour, 1-1/3 cups. Also used about one tablespoon of King Arthur pizza dough flavoring. My husband grilled the flatbread on gas grill. Added wonderful flavor to dough. Cooked tomato topping---diced tomatoes, drained, garlic, basil, salt and pepper. Also used shredded mozzarella very lightly. This is a really good recipe if you want some kind of pizza---the pizza recipe I usually fix takes four hours from start to finish.
