  1. Silvio Caro, tonight was a disaster!
    I made your recipe for homemade flatbread.. everything was fine until I stretched and tried to cook it.
    I have a board and I stretched between two sheets of baking paper.
    Needless to say, no peeling.
    When I kneaded I was soggy, I followed the recipe verbatim, I used fresh yeast, the yeast.
    Anything. It is no longer detached from the baking paper, so I fried diced (but then I threw away even those because my husband has drained the frittini with plastic scoop which merged in oil giving the house a pleasant smell of dioxin).
    Where did I go wrong?
    (thank goodness I had some bread, we ate sandwiches at squaquerone and raw and so ..)

    1. dearest Lixy, alla fine non ti è andata tanto male 🙂 sei riuscita in qualche modo a rimediare la cena!
      the pastry: seems a particular recently, but it is important. during the drafting of the ball absorbs more flour and does not stick, it becomes easier to knead. Courage, They did the first pizzas were of all shapes but….None was round!
