Whole Wheat Garlic Flatbread

You know that thing that happens when what you try something new, and it turns out completely wrong... but instead you get something else that's super awesome? Ya, that happened to today! I tried to make these yummy looking crackers from ShowFood Chef: 10 Minute Crackers - Simple Saturday 

It's not her fault! I'm sure they would have worked... if I'd done it right. However, what I got instead was a super easy and delicious garlic flatbread recipe. SO you can decide, crackers... flat bread... some of each? You can go look at the original recipe, but this is what I did differently.

Whole Wheat Garlic Flatbread
1 c. whole wheat flour (spelt might work well too!)
1/2 c. grated parmesan cheese
1/4 c. butter
1/2 c. water
1 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. garlic powder (optional)
extra sea salt and parmesan cheese for sprinkling.

I added the flour, butter, and cheese together with my hand mixer. (Next time, I'm using the food processor!) Then I added the salt and garlic powder, (probably more than what I have listed if I'm being completely honest. I LOVE garlic!) Next, add the water a little at a time until soft. I accidentally added it all at the same time. Maybe don't do that!

The thing I did super different was this: when I rolled it out, because the dough was too sticky from too much water, I didn't make the crackers thin enough to be actual crackers. The dough was rolled thick like pizza dough.

I topped it with sea salt and parmesan, but feel free to experiment with toppings. I let it bake before cutting the crust for the bread slices. I made squares, but make whatever shapes you want!

Baked it at 400 for probably about 15 mins total. Try 10, then add 2 or 3 mins. a few times, checking. It might need longer. (I was also doing other things and lost track of how many times I added more time.) Just make sure they bake long enough to have nice golden color around the edges and the parmesan on top is baked in that lovely toasted color.

This beautiful thick garlic flatbread stuff was ready for lunch! I warmed up some marinara sauce I had and threw some parmesan in for dipping. Make a little side salad! DONE! If you have a pizza craving, this is cheap, fast, and super tasty!
