Pletzel - Onion & Poppyseed Flatbread
Instructions
Make the Dough:
  1. Combine all the Ingredients for the dough in a large mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, Mix and knead until a soft, pliable dough forms — takes about 7~8 minutes on the machine and 10~12 minutes by hand.
  2. Transfer the dough into a lightly greased bowl, cover and set aside for 2 hours.
Make Caramelized Onions:
  1. While the dough is rising, heat 2~3tbsp olive oil in a large, heavy bottomed skillet over medium high heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions start to sizzle, about 3 minutes. Turn the heat to low and cook till the onions are caramelized and turn golden. Turn off the heat and keep them ready.
Make Pletzels:
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F at least 20 minutes before you start baking. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Divide the dough into 3 equal pieces. Lightly flour the work surface and roll each piece into a large rectangle, about 7″x10″.
  3. Put 2 pieces of dough on 1 baking sheet and the third one on the other baking sheet.
  4. Top the dough with the caramelized onions, poppy seeds and salt. Bake for 20~25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and serve hot or warm.
Recipe Notes
  • Substitute some of the all purpose flour with wholewheat flour.
