1 1/2 T granulated yeast
1 1/2 t salt
1 T sugar
1-3 T herbs (optional)
1/4 cup olive oil
2 3/4 cups warm water
6 1/2 cups flour
Look at me, all remembering the recipe. I am ON it. And this one is so easy that you can probably do it drunk. Or with a three-year-old, which is what I did.
OK! Take your first five ingredients and throw them in a bowl. You can use whatever herbs you want, fresh or dried, depending on how you are using your flatbread. If they're dry, kind of moosh them in your hand to release the oils.
I was going to make pizza crust, so I used marjoram, fennel seed, oregano, basil, and lots of rosemary. If you have some sort of boutique olive oil you could use that instead of regular-- I'll use the oil I pack tomatoes in and it is YUM. I highly recommend rosemary regardless.

Add the flour. Make sure you kind of fluff it with a fork or something before spooning it into your measuring cup and leveling it off. This is VERY IMPORTANT otherwise your measurements will be way off and your flatbread will be more like thin cement than bread.
|Do not eat it yet. It is nasty.|
|I will take over your home. JUST WATCH ME.|
|We will eat your children.|
|We will still grow in our little terrariums. YOU CANNOT STOP US.|
When you're ready, and you've let them rise again like Jesus for an hour or two, dust some sort of clean work surface with flour and throw that baby on it.
|I am so good at looking innocent.|
Roll it out. There is no need to roll it into a circle or square or anything, you can make it look like any random made-up shape in existence. I was just making pizza out of mine, so I wanted it to fit on the pizza stone.

|BAM. DONE, BITCHES.|
