  • 2 cups cornmeal
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1⁄2 tsp. iodized salt
  • 1 cup cold water

  • Sift together the cornmeal, flour, and salt. Mix the flour mixture and water in a mixer using a large dough hook for 3 minutes or until the ingredients are incorporated and the dough is formed. Let the dough rest for 1 hour in the refrigerator.

  • Preheat oven to 400°F and lightly grease a baking sheet with the oil.
  • Bake the flatbread until thoroughly cooked, about 5 minutes per side.
