Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Divide dough in half and roll it out into two thin flatbreads on a lightly floured surface.
  3. Transfer flatbread doughs to two parchment lined baking sheets.
  4. Drizzle each flatbread with 1 tablespoon olive oil and divide the oregano between the two flatbreads, sprinkling it in an even layer.
  5. Bake flatbread crusts for about 5-7 minutes or until they just start to turn light golden brown on the edges.

Notes

This recipe makes 2 flatbreads which will feed 4-8 people (depending on whether you're serving it as a main dish or an appetizer) but it can easily be halved if you're just feeding a couple people.

I prefer to roll out the dough quite thinly for this flatbread, but you can keep it thicker if you like!
