Topped Flatbreads Recipe

6 C Bread Flour
2 - 2 ¼ C Water, slightly warm
1 Packet Instant Yeast (.25 oz.)
1 ½ t salt

Combine all ingredients in mixer, mix on low speed with dough hook for 4 minutes until all the flour is hydrated and a sticky ball is formed. Increase speed to medium, mix 4-10 minutes, until dough is smooth and pulls away from the sides and bottom of the bowl. Place dough into oiled tub, cover and let rise for 1-2 hours, until dough has doubled in size. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface, divide into 3 equal pieces. Form each piece into a tight ball. Cover and let rise for 1 hour. Place dough ball on lightly oiled baking pan. Press down each dough ball into a flat circle. Let the dough relax for 15-30 minutes. Press down dough again, until it is approx. ½ inch thick or less.

Top with desired toppings, sprinkle with herbs and a light coat of olive oil.
Bake at 425 for approx 20 minutes, or until cheese is golden brown.

? to ½ C Whole Milk
3 T sugar

1/4 cup lukewarm water
10 tablespoons butter

Additional Ingredients

8-10 Cooked Sausages
1 egg, well beaten

Combine all ingredients except butter in mixer. Mix using dough hook on low speed 4 mins, or until all ingredients are evenly combined. The dough should be slightly firm, add additional flour or milk if dough is too thick or too soft. Mix on high speed 8-15 minutes until dough is smooth and pulls away from the sides of the mixing bowl. Add butter, and mix until dough is smooth and shiny. Cover and let stand 1 hour. Refrigerate dough overnight, or at least 6 hours.

After refrigeration, roll out the dough into a square or rectangle approx ¼ to ? inch thick. Cut dough into rectangles slightly shorter than the sausages you are using, and twice as long.
