  • 3 1/2 cup(s) flour, all-purpose
  • 1 package(s) active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cup(s) water
  • 2 tablespoon oil, olive
  • 2/3 cup(s) cheese, Swiss
  • 1/3 cup(s) nuts, almonds, sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper, cracked black
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, sea


1. In a large bowl, stir together 1 1/4 cups of the flour, the yeast, and salt. Add the warm water and 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Beat with an electric mixer on low to medium speed for 30 seconds, scraping side of bowl. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes. Using a wooden spoon, stir in as much of the remaining flour as you can.2. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead in enough of the remaining flour to make a stiff dough that is smooth and elastic (8 to 10 minutes total). Shape dough into a ball. Place in a lightly greased bowl; turn once to grease surface of dough. Cover; let rise in a warm place until double in size (about 1 hour).3. Punch down dough. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide in half. Lightly oil 2 baking sheets. Shape each half of the dough into a ball. Place on prepared baking sheets. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Flatten each ball into a circle about 9 inches in diameter. Using your fingers, press 1/2-inch-deep indentations about 2 inches apart into the surface. Brush with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. Sprinkle with cheese, almonds, pepper, and coarse salt. Cover; let rise in a warm place until nearly double in size (about 20 minutes).4. Preheat oven to 375° F. Bake flatbread for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from baking sheets; cool on wire racks.
