Gluten Free Garlic Flat Bread

Gluten Free Garlic Flat BreadIMG_0556

Serves 8

7 g sachet gluten-free dry yeast

1 ¼ cup warm water

480 g gluten-free bread mix

1/3 cup olive oil

GF plain flour for dusting

4 garlic cloves, crushed

  1. Combine yeast and 1 ¼ cups warm water in a large bowl. Add bread mix and 1 tablespoon oil.
  2. Stir to form a soft dough.
  3. Turn onto floured surface and gently knead into a ball.
  4. Transfer to a large greased bowl, cover and set aside in a warm place for 30 minutes or until mixture has doubled in size.
  5. Punch down dough and divide into 8 portions.  Roll 1 portion out to a 20 cm round.
  6. Heat a greased barbeque plate on medium-high heat.  Add garlic to remaining oil.
  7. Brush 1 side of dough rounds with garlic mixture. Cook for 4 minutes, turn and brush with garlic mixture.  Cook for a further 4 minutes.
  8. Repeat with remaining dough rounds and garlic mixture.


( I cook them on the crepe maker on setting 2 ½ .  The mixture is quite unstable so do not overwork the dough rounds and roll just before you are ready to cook them.  I found spreading them using your fingers helpful. You can also place them between two sheets of floured baking paper and roll with a rolling pin)
