Caramelized Onion Flatbread  Recipe @

My son is not a fan of dinner rolls of flatbread but crazy about stuffed or filled bread with sweet filling. So I decided to whip up this  Caramelized Onion Flatbread with caramelized onion for myself.

Don't look down on this flatbread. They are amazing! The caramelized onion does wonder to this simple  bread, The caramelized  onion produces a sweetness and unique flavor you'll definitely enjoy eating.

For great looking bread, when sauteing the onion, remove from heat when they are about to turn brown. The onion will continue to brown while baking.

Yield    :    6 flatbread

2  cup  all purpose flour
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp instant yeast
3/4  cup  warm water
2 tablespoon oil
1/2 tsp salt

2 big onion sliced
2 tablespoon butter/oil

Caramelized Onion Flatbread Recipe @


In a large skillet, over medium heat, cook onion in two tablespoon of butter, stirring occasionally until tender and about to turn brown. This takes time,  so be patient.

Place flour, sugar, salt, oil and instant yeast into a mixing bowl.

Gradually add water to form into soft dough.

Knead dough by hand for 8 minutes until smooth, transfer into covered and oiled bowl, let rise until double for 1-1.5 hour.

Punch dough down,  roll out about 1/4 in thick on floured board and cut out into round. I get  6 flatbread of 4 in diameter.

Lightly press  with your finger into the center dough to make indentations leaving 1 in border. Sprinkle the onion slices over the top. Repeat with the rest of the dough.

Place the dough onto baking sheet, I used 2 baking sheets and rest the dough for 45 minutes. Towards the end of rising time, preheat oven @ 180 C.

Bake the bread for 15 minutes or until  lightly browned.

Transfer onto rack to cool.

Great bread. Just wondering, do you have stand mixer to do your dough or hand knead mostly?
What brand of mixer if you have one?
I use to hand knead but now thinking to get one stand mixer getting lazy now :-(
