Sun-dried tomato, Onion and Olive flat bread


This recipe will make a 10″ flat bread. This bread is very soft and moist.


For the pizza base

  1. All purpose flour – 11/2 cups
  2. Instant yeast – 1.5 level tsps
  3. Lukewarm water – 2 tbsp + 3/4 cup (/ as needed)
  4. Sugar –1.5 heaping tsps
  5. Salt – 3/4 tsp
  6. Sunflower/ Olive oil – 3 tbsps.

For the topping

  1. Pizza sauce – 2 tbsps.
  2. Butter – 1 tbsp.
  3. Onion – 1 small , sliced long & thin
  4. Sun-dried tomatoes – 5 numbers; chopped ( I used Sacla Italia)
  5. Olives – 2 tbsps.; chopped
  6. Mozzarella cheese as needed ( I like to use Monte Cristo Brand modified with palm oil)- 200 grams; grated
  7. Oregano – a pinch ( for sprinkling)
  8. Chopped fresh basil – 2 tsps.
  9. Salt and pepper powder as needed


  1. For the pizza base, mix together the plain flour, yeast, sugar, salt and lukewarm water. Knead the dough for a good 15 minutes, also keep banging the dough as you knead. Cover with a damp cloth & keep undisturbed for 1-1.5 hours/ till the dough doubles in volume. The dough for breads/pizzas have to be really, really soft.
  2. Preheat the oven to 200C.
  3. Heat 1 tbsp. of butter in a pan & fry the onions till they turn pink.
  4. Punch the risen  dough and place it in a 10″ pizza pan. Poke it with a fork at several places. Spread the pizza sauce on it followed by a thin layer of grated mozzarella cheese (around 100 grams). Top with the chopped olives, tomatoes and onions. Sprinkle more grated mozzarella cheese(100 grams), oregano & crushed basil on top. Sprinkle salt and pepper over the cheese.
  5. Bake the pizza in a preheated oven at 200C for 18 minutes/ till the cheese melts & turns a bit brown.
  6. Serve it hot.
