➡️ Tips and Substitutions:

If using a stand mixer with a dough hook, simply dump all of the bread ingredients into the mixer and let it do all of the mixing and kneading.

Substitute fresh rosemary for the fresh thyme.

Instead of brushing olive oil on top, use coconut oil, avocado oil or melted butter instead.

Use flaked sea salt in plate of kosher salt.

✔️ Make Ahead Tips:

Prepare the dough ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator overnight. The next day, bring it to room temperature and cover; let rise in warm place until doubled in size; about 45 minutes to 1 hour. And continue with the rest of the recipe.

If you’ve already baked or purchased flatbread, you can freeze it for later use. Wrap individual flatbreads tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil, then place them in a freezer-safe bag or container. Frozen flatbread can be thawed in the refrigerator or at room temperature before reheating.
