  • Ready In

  1. Place ingredients in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select Dough cycle; press Start.
  2. Preheat oven to 475 degrees F (245 degrees C).
  3. Once the dough has risen, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into eight equal pieces and form into rounds. Cover the rounds with a damp cloth and let rest.
  4. Roll dough into thin flat circles, about 8 inches in diameter. Cook two at a time on preheated baking sheets or a baking stone until puffed up and golden brown, about 5 minutes. Repeat for remaining loaves.

I love this bread! I orginally made it for a cultural presentations I was doing, but I like it so much that I am going to have to make it again! Oh and I found out adding extra sugar (what a w...

I sometimes poke holes in the dough right before I bake it if I don't want it to be puffed up. And if I want it to be a softer bread, I will not cook it quite as long.

Bread was very tasty! My family loved it. It was very similar to my sister in law's, who happens to be Syrian. Only problem I had was with huge air bubbles. After I had made them, my SIL tol...

Very GOOD!!! Crunchy and tasty, the whole kitchen smelled like a "BAKERY"!
