It now seems a lifetime away that I lived in Germany. I moved away from there in 2007, so it has been a while indeed. I spent nearly ten years in Cologne, so of course I still miss many things from there. Today’s food is one of those things. There was, and still is, a bakery chain making these tasty flatbreads on a pretzel dough base. I would often get one as a snack on the go. That’s where my inspiration for these flatbreads comes from.
I made half of my flatbreads with an onion, garlic and Cheddar filling and the other half with bell peppers and Mozzarella. I also made sodium carbonate to make my basic pizza dough taste like pretzels. The dough is dipped in the sodium carbonate for a while before hand-stretching, filling and baking the flatbread. You can read all about this method in my previous Pretzel roll post.
Have a nice weekend!
