In the bowl of a food processor combine the yeast sugar, flour, salt and thyme. Pulse to combine. Add the water in a steady stream until the dough begins to form a ball, turn it on to a board and knead with the heel of your hand until the dough is smooth and elastic.

Coat a bowl with oil. Place dough in bowl, and cover with a damp cloth. Put in a warm spot to rise until double in size, about 1 hour.

When the dough has doubled in size, punch the dough, scrape it onto the counter and knead it lightly into a smooth ball. Cut into 20 pieces and with a rolling pin roll out to form very flat 5 to 6-inch circles.

Preheat a stove top grill pan over medium high. Do not oil. Place bread on hot grill and cook without touching it until you see bubbles on the surface, about 1 to 2 minutes. Turn and continue to cook 1 to 2 minutes more or until bread has puffed up. Serve immediately.

Spread flatbread with pesto, top with roasted red peppers, or your favorite toppings, if desired, top with cheese. Broil for 3 minutes or until golden brown. Watch the broiler so you don’t burn it.

I found some great recipes from Bobby Flay. You might want to check these out as well.

Have a great (paisley) week!~KeriAnne
