Bread

Matnakash
Armenian flat bread.

1 pack dry east
˝ t. spoon sugar
1 full t. spoon salt
4 cups flour
2 cups warm water
2-3 T. spoon oil
Mix water, east and sugar till dissolved. Add salt and flour, mix well. The dough will still be sticky, cover the bowl with towel or plastic wrap and let it seat in a warm place for an hour. After that push the dough down and mix again for a little bit, let it rest and rise for another half an hour.
Poor the oil on the baking dish you will use, drop the dough on top of it. Work it with you r hands by pushing down. It should be somewhat oval in shape. Then with your fingers push down the border and the straight lines, it should not be more than an inch high. Let it proof for another 20 minutes or so. Brush the top with some water. Bake at 425 deg for about 20-25 minutes. Bread came out to be about 10 inches wide and about 14 inches long, approximately.

That looks great. I've never tried to make flat bread before. I might give this one a try.

Maybe it is, but I would not like pizza like that. It did not tasted pizzaish. But hey, to each it's own.

Well, to me, the pizza crust is what makes a "pizza" and is what I try my best to perfect. Pizza dough is a flat bread dough. Your Armenian bread and original Italian pizza dough may have a similar origin since they come from the same part of the world. Your photo looks great!
