Sweet Flatbread with Grapes

Serves 8

  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 cup lukewarm water
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2/3 cup shelled and chopped walnuts
  • 1-1/2 pound black or purple grapes (the smaller the better)

To Prepare

1. Dissolve the yeast in the lukewarm water for about 10 minutes, until foamy.

2. Pour the flour onto a clean, dry surface, making a well in the center. Gradually pour the dissolved yeast into the well, adding 1/3 of the sugar and the salt. Mix with a wooden spoon until all the liquid is incorporated into the flour. Knead into a smooth, elastic dough.

3. Form the dough into a ball; place in a lightly oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Leave dough to rise in a warm place for about 2 hours, until doubled in bulk.

4. Brush a half-sized sheet pan with olive oil. Remove the dough from the bowl and punch down. Roll the dough out some; place it on the pan and form it onto the pan with your hands. Poke with the fingers to achive a surface of hills and valleys. Vover with the nuts and grapes; sprinkle with the remaining sugar. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise about 30 minutes more.

5. Preheat the oven to 400° F and bake for 40 minutes, until golden. Remove from the pan and cool.
