Schiacciata-Inspired Lazy Flatbread (vegan) / Lijeni tanki kruh nadahnut Schiaciattom (veganski)

Happy belated Easter everyone. ❤ I hope that you all had some nice, relaxing and safe times and that there was some good food in the picture as well.

I love baking bread at home, but I am also a super lazy person and really don’t feel like putting in more hours in the kitchen than is absolutely necessary. So, when it comes to bread baking, no-knead breads are my bastions of hope. I wanted to make some good flatbread to use for sandwiches and Italian Schiacciata inspired me to really don’t follow any recipes at all and just improvise it into my own version. This turned out surprisingly well, so here you go, another no-knead bread recipe is here (like we don’t have plenty of those already). With this one you won’t even have to mess up your counter, ha!

Also, a big thank you to awesome Lady & Pups for greatly inspiring this lazy baking project.

METHOD:

In a big bowl whisk together flour, yeast, sugar and salt. Add warm water and stir vigorously for about 2-3 minutes until it is all well combined. The dough will be pretty runny and will resemble more a pancake batter, but that’s actually what we are going for. Cover the bowl with cling foil and leave it to rest someplace warm for 12 hours. I usually stick the bowl in the turned-off oven and it works out great.

After 12 hours the dough will be really bubbly and have a sour smell. Give it another short stir. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and sprinkle it generously with flour. Pour the dough out on prepared baking tray and distribute it gently around in a thin, even-ish layer. Sprinkle the dough generously with flour, then cover and let it rest for another hour.

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 220°C. Once the dough has rested, flour your fingers and poke the dough around all the way through. This will prevent gigantic air pockets from forming and you’ll have a more even flatbread. Bake the bread for 30 minutes, until crispy on the outside and golden.

Transfer the flatbread to a cooling rack and allow it to cool completely before slicing and serving.

Dragi prijatelji, želim vam svima zakašnjeli sretan Uskrs. ❤ Nadam se da ste se lijepo opustili i bili sigurni, te da su vam dani bili puni dobre hrane.

Osobno baš volim peći kruh kod kuće, ali sam ujedno i ogromna ljenčina, pa mi se ne da u kuhinji boraviti i više nego što je potrebno. Tako da, kada je u pitanju pečenje kruha, kruhovi koji se ne mijese (no-knead) su ono čemu jako često pribjegnem. Ovoga sam puta naumila napraviti neki fini tanki kruh za sendviče, a talijanska me Schiacciata nadahnula da na kraju zapravo ne pratim niti jedan recept kako treba već da sve nekako izimproviziram na neki svoj način. Ovaj kruh je ispao baš zanimljiv i ukusan, pa evo vam stoga još jedan super recept za kruh koji se ne mijesi (za slučaj da ih za sada već nemate dovoljno u svojem arsenalu). Ono što je dodatnih ogromni plus ovom kruhu je da čak nećete morati niti uprljati radnu plohu u kuhinji, ha!

Također, ogromno hvala genijalnoj Lady & Pups koja je uvelike nadahnula ovaj moj lijeni projekt.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 1 veliki flatbread / 2,16 kn)

Za tijesto:

3 šalice glatkog brašna (1,50 kn)

½ žličice suhog kvasca (0,50 kn)

1 žlica šećera (0,05 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

1 i ½ šalica tople vode (–)

Dodatno:

Brašno za posipanje (0,10 kn)

PRIPREMA:

U velikoj zdjeli pomiješajte brašno, kvasac, šećer i sol. Dodajte toplu vodu i energično miješajte jedno 2-3 minute da se sve dobro sjedini. Tijesto će biti prilično tekuće i više će vam ličiti na neku smjesu za palačinke, ali to je baš ono na što ciljamo. Posudu sa tijestom pokrijte prijanjajućom folijom i ostavite da 12 odmara na nekom toplom mjestu. Ja obično stavim tijesto u ugašenu pećnicu i to super funkcionira.

Nakon 12 sati tijesto će biti puno mjehurića i imati će kiselkast miris, te ga sada sada samo kratko promiješajte. Obložite protvan papirom za pečenje te posipajte sa dosta brašna. Tijesto iskrenite na tako pripremljeni protvan te ga nježno raširite u tankom, manje-više jednoličnom sloju. I tijesto također dobro pobrašnite, pokrijte i ostavite da odmara još sat vremena.

U međuvremenu zagrijte pećnicu na 220°C. Kada je tijesto drugi puta odmorilo, dobro pobrašnite prste, pa ih na više mjesta utisnite u tijesto skroz dok ne dođete do protvana. Tako nećete imati ogromne balone zraka kada vam se kruh ispeče. Pecite 30 minuta, dok kruh ne bude hrskav izvana i zlatno-smećkast.

Kruh preselite na rešetku i ostavite da se skroz ohladi prije nego ga razrežete i poslužite.
