Simple middle eastern spiced flat bread

The bread mix

1 and 1/2 cups of plain flour

1/2 tsp yeast

3/4 tsp salt

1 tbsp olive oil

3/4 cup warm water

Combine and mix the ingredients in a bowl and allow to rise for 2.5 hours

The topping

1 tsp ground sumac

1/2 tsp ground thyme

1/2 tsp ground oregano

1 tsp sesame seeds

pinch of salt

Mix together

Once the bread mix has risen, divide into two and flatten to approx 5 mm thick (if possible!!). Then sprinkle with the topping, drizzle with extra olive oil and cook for 12-15 minutes. I do this at 230 degrees centigrade in a fan oven.

Remove and leave to cool, then enjoy
