    I too saw some bread like this being made in Turkey. Love these little videos – they take you right to the place, the call to prayer in the background – awesome!

    You can use a large Wok for this method. I’ve been using one for some time now.
    Used an Angle Grinder to remove the handle then sanded the entire thing by hand, both sides. Now I can use it on a stove top, over coals, or most of all right in the oven.
    Just remove the upper oven rack, lower the lowest rack and you have room to toss dough.
    Plus-side…the now shiny Wok looks cool sitting on a wooden rack above my sink. ;-)

    She makes working the dough look so easy.

    Any one has a recipe for the dough?

    @Nonsense girl: I will have one for you soon; however, for now, it is a simple bread dough with one third whole-wheat flour, yeast, salt and water.
