1. Preparation Filled Flatbread With Zucchini
Put the flour, sugar and the Brewer’s Yeast in a large bowl, then mix with a fork to mix the dry ingredients. Now add the water and oil and start working with the help of a fork or spoon. When the dough has taken consistency, transfer it to the pastry board, add the salt and work it by hand as long as necessary to obtain a smooth and homogeneous dough. For a soft and fluffy result of the flatbread, I advise you not to add more flour on the pastry board during processing.
Transfer the dough into a bowl, make the classic cross cut, cover with plastic wrap and let it rise for 2 hours or at least the time necessary to double it in volume.
While the dough rises, let’s take care of the filling. Slice the courgettes into thin slices with the help of a mandolin. In a large pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil, then add the courgettes, adjust them with salt and pepper according to your tastes and sauté them on high heat for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. It is not necessary to cook the courgettes completely since they will finish cooking in the oven in the flatbread. Cook the zucchini and let them cool.
Once the dough is leavened, put it on a lightly floured work surface, divide it in half and work each dough with a rolling pin until you get two regular disks.
Cover the first dough disk with a circular baking pan with a diameter of 26 cm, taking care to slightly overheat it.
Start stuffing the flatbread with half the courgettes sautéed in a pan, then make a layer with slices of mozzarella and finally cover everything with the remaining zucchini.
Cover everything with the other disk, then seal the two doughs forming a cord; in doing this, do not hesitate to eliminate any excess dough. Brush the flatbread with a little olive oil, then pierce the surface with the prongs of a fork. Let the flatbread rise for another 30 minutes. Once the second leavening is over, bake the flatbread in a preheated static oven at 180 degrees for 25 – 30 minutes.
Here is the Filled flatbread with Zucchini served on the table! I advise you to let it cool about ten minutes before slicing and tasting it.
