- 1 tbsp Active Dry Yeast
- 1 cup Warm Water 105-115 Degrees
- 1 tsp Sugar
- 3 1/2 tbsp Sugar
- 1 large Egg Beaten
- 3 tbsp Milk
- 2 tsp Salt
- 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
- 4-4 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour
- 1 large Clove of fresh Garlic Minced or 1 Teaspoon Garlic Paste or 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
- Oil for Frying
- Butter for Spreading
- In a small bowl mix the yeast, water, and 1 teaspoon of sugar together. Let stand for 10 minutes. Stir together the 3 1/2 Tablespoons of sugar, egg, milk, salt, and baking soda. Stir in the yeast mixture and the flour to make soft dough.
- Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 6-8 minutes or until smooth. Place the dough in a large bowl coated with oil. Cover it with a damp dishtowel. Set dough aside to rise until double, about 1 hour. Punch down and knead in the fresh garlic if using.
- Pinch off dough about the size of a tennis ball. Roll into a ball, spray a baking sheet with cooking oil and place the balls on it. Let rise until double, about 30 minutes.
- Turn the over to 350 degrees. Roll out each piece of dough as thin as you can get it. (You won’t need any flour to roll the dough out on) – you can use very little flour if you really need to. I have a pizza stone I leave inside the oven. You can also use a grill or large fry pan.
- Place dough in the oven and bake 2 minutes – turn and cook the other sides. You can brush oil or butter on the hot bread with a rubber brush. Continue the process until all the dough is cooked. Serve warm with butter.
