    Lavash is an unleavened flat bread popular in Armenia, Iran and Turkey. It is traditionally cooked in a tandoor, but you can use your oven! Great alternative to wraps and naan.

    Something else. I've made this dozens of times and always to many rave reviews. I have substituted dried rosemary for the sesame seeds and added a bit of coarse salt on top. Using a pasta machine makes rolling the dough very thin much easier.  -  15 Sep 2008


    Just like crackers. They do need to be rolled out very thin and even. I sprinkled salt on one batch, sesame on another and pepper on the last. They were all great. I drew lines with a knife where I wanted the giant 'cracker' to break after being baked and it worked great.  -  15 Sep 2008
