Tiropsomo (Feta-Stuffed Flatbread)

This is a yeast flatbread remixed from a couple of recipes at Dimitra’s Dishes, using no-knead olive oil dough.
Since it’s a flatbread, there’s no rising time, bread stone, or steam tray required.

Instructions are provided for one big flatbread or more individual servings.

Ingredients

  • 1 grapefruit-sized chunk of (preferably) olive oil no-knead dough (1 lb.)
  • 1 T melted butter
  • feta
  • mozzarella and/or cream cheese (optional)
  • dried or fresh mint, or oregano, to taste
  • black pepper (optional)

Topping

  • 1 T melted butter
  • sesame seeds or nigella (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425° (400° for individual pieces).
  2. Oil a pie plate or line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Melt the full 2 T. butter in the oven (or in the microwave at 50% for a minute or so).
  4. Sprinkle dough with flour, divide dough in half or into 3–4 personal-sized portions, and shape into balls.
  5. Flatten to ¼" thick. If making one flatbread, place half the dough into the baking pan. Brush all dough with butter.
  6. Mix remaining non-topping ingredients and top the prepared dough with the filling. You can eyeball them instead of mixing them. dough with feta dough with feta and olives

Add olives or spinach to the stuffing.

Nigella would be a tasty addition or replacement for the sesame seeds.
