Les ingrédients

Pour people
  • For the pastry
  • Strong white bread flour : 600 g
  • Water : 300 ml
  • Caster sugar : 2 Tsp
  • Maldon salt : 3 pinch(es)
  • Olive oil : 4 Tbsp
  • Black olive(s) : 150 g
  • For the rest of the recipe
  • Olive oil : 60 ml
  • Garlic clove(s) : 2 whole
  • Ground cumin : 3 Tsp
  • Paprika : 3 Tsp
  • Ground turmeric : 0.25 Tsp
  • Maldon salt : 3 pinch(es)
  • Plain flour : 100 g



    Preheat the oven 195 C.
    Finely chop the olives and mix with the flour, salt and sugar.

    Add 2 tablespoon of olive oil and the water until a firm, but soft dough has formed.
    Sprinkle the work surface generously with flour and turn the dough out onto the surface. Knead until the dough is velvety smooth. It takes about 1-3 minutes.
    Wrap the dough in clingfilm and leave to rest at least 10 minutes.


    Peel and grate the garlic, mix with the olive oil.
    Lightly brush the seasoned olive oil in a large baking paper.
    To prepare the spice blend mix the paprika, cumin, turmeric and some salt.
    Unwrap the dough and divide in six.

    Flatten each into a disk on a floured surface. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough out as thinly as possible into an oval shape. Roll the dough onto the pin and transfer it to a baking sheet that has been brushed with the oil.

    Lightly glaze the flatbread with some more garlic oil and sprinkle with the spice blend.

    Place the baking sheet on a rack in the middle of the oven or on a baking tray.

    Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the flatbread is golden brown.
    Break into pieces to serve.
