Preparation steps

1.

Dissolve the yeast in the lukewarm water and combine with the flour and salt in a large bowl. Knead to form a smooth dough. Cover and let rise for about 1 hour.  

2.

Transfer the dough to a floured surface and knead a few times. Divide the dough into two pieces and shape each into a circle about 25 cm (approximately 10 inches) in diameter. 

3.

Place the dough circles onto a greased baking sheet and press lightly with fingertips. 

4.

Whisk the egg yolk, sugar and olive oil together and brush onto the dough circles. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds and let rise for 15 minutes. Preheat the oven to 220°C (approximately 425°F) and place a small, ovenproof dish of water on the bottom rack. 

5.

Bake the flatbreads for 10-15 minutes, until golden brown. Remove from the oven and serve warm or at room temperature.
