SUMMERSHORTS and LYNNIEV: Thanks for your input. Ok, I made them and I will share the process.
Essentially, the dough is the same as my pizza crust, except I add active dry yeast and molasses or honey or maple syrup or brown sugar and use less flour.
2 and1/4th cups of whole-wheat flour
3/4ths cup of water
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 tb. olive oil
I sprayed my hands liberally with olive oil from my Misto spayer.
After kneading the dough a bit, I let it rise for 15 or so minutes, covered.
I preheated the oven to 350〫 F.
Using one of my round pizza pans as the work station, I floured it liberally.
I fashioned the dough, with well-oiled hands, into a log around 10-11" long.
I ended up making 7 flat-breads, about the size of dinner plates.
I kept both sides of the dough ball well-floured and flipped it a couple of times as I used
my mini-pastry/pizza crust roller to roll out the dough really thin on my round pizza pan.
I then transferred the rolled-out dough to another pizza pan/cookie sheet and put it in the
oven. Initially, I went for 3 minutes on one side and 2 on the other, but changed it to 2
I kept two pans/cookie sheets going, but only baked one flat bread at a time.
Conclusions: (1) Yes, I would use this basic method again. The texture is good, if a bit floury. (2) The ingredients are simple and easily available. (3) I like the flavor of whole wheat over white flour items.
Changes: (1) I would consider adding some sort of seasoning, maybe some garlic powder and/or Italian seasoning to the flour and salt and blending that before adding the water and oil. (2) I would make very sure that I "cut" the 6-7 dough balls of equal proportion. If not, there was a tendency for me to roll out one of them too thin, my last one. Another one, my first one, may have been a bit too thick. The middle 5 were exactly what I wanted. The crisp one broke in a couple of places as I was rolling it up for a bbq pork sandwich.
Use: (1) One of them I ate after spreading two Laughing Cow cheese wedges on it. (2) The other one I put diced bbq pork on.
