  • 1 egg beaten
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 4 c. flour
  • 2 tsp. pressed garlic
  • 1/2 c. butter melted


  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand about 10 minutes, until frothy. Stir in sugar, milk, egg, salt and about 3 cups of flour to make a soft dough.
  2. Knead on a lightly floured surface until smooth.
  3. Place dough in a greased bowl & cover with a damp cloth until doubled in size.

  6. At grill side, stretch out each ball of dough into a thin circle by dipping fingers in melted butter.
  7. Place dough on the grill on medium heat; cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until puffy and browned.
  8. Brush cooked side with butter, turn dough over and cook until browned, another 2 to 4 minutes.
  9. Repeat with remaining dough.
