Final Four Flatbreads

Part of the excitement of March Madness is hosting watch parties and all month, we’ve been offering up tasty March Madness-inspired recipes for throwing one hell of a party.

 As we close out this month and cruise into the Final Four, we’re offering up some fancier takes on game day eats and some killer desserts to round things out.


How to Make Flatbread (just in case):

1 2/3 cups water

2 teaspoons active dry or instant yeast (1 packet)

1/4 cup olive oil

5 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons salt

  1. ‍Mix the water and yeast together in the bowl of a stand mixer and let stand for a few minutes until the yeast dissolves.
  2. Stir the oil into the yeast mixture, then add the flour and salt. Mix with a spatula until a shaggy.
  3. Turn the dough hook on to low for 5 minutes, or knead by hand on the counter for 6 to 8 minutes. Your dough will form a smooth ball that springs slowly back when poked!
  4. Cut the dough into 4 squares. Grease a baking pan with baking spray. Place the dough lumps in the pan and turn them over so they are coated with oil. Cover the pan with a damp kitchen towel and let the dough rise at room temperature until doubled in bulk, about 1.5 hours
  5. Using a wine glass (yes really!) cut flatbread into circles. Brush with olive oil and bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes, until golden brown. Top with your assorted toppings.
