Skillet Bread


It has the consistency and flavor of focaccia.  What’s not to like?


2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
2 cups warm water
1 tbsp salt + additional for sprinkling
4 1/3 cups flour
Olive oil
Sesame seeds and poppy seeds for sprinkling


Combine years and water in a large mixing bowl. Mix in 1 cup of flour and then add salt. Continue to mix in one cup at a time until well mixed.  Dough will be wet. Cover loosely and let rise for 1 hour.

Lightly oil skillet.  Sift some flour not he top of the dough and then your hands. Take the dough and shape into a disk without punching it down. Place in skillet and cover loosely with a towel again and allow to sit for another 1/2 hour.

Sprinkle with any toppings you like. I used a little salt, poppy and sesame seeds.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and bake for 35-40 minutes until top is browned.
