Oh bread, that lovely staple food that you can find all over the world and is welcome in any home. There are so many styles of bread out there but did you know that the first breads were made nine thousand years ago in Egypt? They didn’t have the tools and ingredients we have today, so their flatbreads were the order of the day. Now, you can also make some authentic Middle Eastern flatbread with some modern tools and tricks.

If you have a pizza oven, your job will be much easier when making these breads and pizza stones make a great second option for the oven. The bread is so easy to put together and they will rise a bit more than they would have bake then, but it’s a good thing. They’re soft and fluffy on the inside with a beautiful outer crust. You can cut them open for some filled sandwiches or serve them with your winter soup or stew to dip them to soak up that tasty broth.
