Author: The Gracious Pantry
¾cupwarm water(about 110 F.)
1packetactive dry yeast
1 ⅓cupswhite whole wheat flour(plus extra for dusting and adjusting)
2tbsp.olive oil(divided, plus extra for rising and grilling)
1tbsp.garlic powder(2 tbsp. if you like a strong garlic flavor)
In a small pot, warm water over high heat. Use a thermometer to get to the right temperature. It happens pretty quickly.
Pour the yeast into that and let it sit.
While the yeast soaks and gets foamy, mix the flour, salt and garlic powder together in a large mixing bowl.
Add the oil and the yeast and knead the dough with your hands until you have a nice ball of dough.
If the dough sticks to your hands a lot, add more flour, a tablespoon at a time until it is sticky, but doesn't leave dough behind on your hands.
Lift the dough out of the bowl and pour in about 1 tbsp. of oil into the bowl. Set the dough back in and rotate the dough in the oil to cover it so it doesn't dry out during rising. You don't knead it into the dough, just coat the outside of the dough ball to keep it moist. Set it back in the bowl and cover the bowl with a towel. Set the bowl in a slightly warm place.
Allow to rise for about 30 minutes.
Using a knife, cut the dough into even quarters.
Roll the dough pieces flat on a lightly floured surface. (you can use your hands to flatten hem too.)
Oil one side and place the dough, oiled-side down, on your hot grill.
Cook on that side for about 3 minutes. In the process, oil the raw side so it's ready to go when it's time to flip the flatbread.
Use a spatula to flip the flatbread on the grill.
Remove all the flatbread from the barbecue and transfer to a platter.
Spread a little butter over the flatbread while it's still warm so the butter can melt.
Serve with dinner.
