Try this Garlic and Herb Flat Bread recipe Made in Geno’s Kitchen


  • 1/2 cup good quality olive oil
  • 4 medium sized cloves of garlic, crushed and finely chopped.
  • 2 teaspoons thyme or rosemary or mixture of both.
  • 1 sachet of yeast (7g)
  • 1/4 teaspoon of sugar
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 and 1/2 cups plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt + a pinch extra


  • Pre heat oven to 230 °C (210°C fan forced)
  • Mix oil, garlic and herbs in a small bowl, cover and set aside for 30 minutes or overnight to infuse.
  • Mix water, yeast and sugar in a large mixing bowl and allow to froth up for about 5 – 10 minutes.
  • Add 1 cup of flour and 1/4 cup of the garlic infused oil into the yeast mixture and stir only very lightly, leaving the mixture in a lumpy batter. Allow it to sit for 5 – 8 minutes.
  • Add in the remaining flour and mix well until fully incorporated and a dough forms.
  • Turn dough onto a floured bench and knead for about 12 minutes or until the dough becomes smooth.
  • Shape dough into a ball and rub a bit of the infused oil on it.
  • Place dough in a bowl and cover with a tea towel.
  • Set aside for 1 hour to proof.
  • Use a bit of the infused oil to grease a rectangle baking tray.
  • Tip the risen dough onto the tray and press down to cover the whole base. Create dimples on the dough with fingertips.
  • Pour the remaining oil, including the garlic and hebs onto the dough, maneuvering it so it fills the little dimples. Sprinkle over with the extra salt.
  • Allow it to rise for 20 minutes.
  • Bake for 20 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and drizzle with extra olive oil if desired.
  • Serve.
