Lavash is a flatbread very popular in Turkey, Iran and Iraq. Make sure you roll the dough out very thinly for best results. A great alternative to pita.

Something else. I've made this dozens of times and always to many rave reviews. I have substituted dried rosemary for the sesame seeds and added a bit of coarse salt on top. Using a pasta machine makes rolling the dough very thin much easier. - 29 Sep 2008

Just like crackers. They do need to be rolled out very thin and even. I sprinkled salt on one batch, sesame on another and pepper on the last. They were all great. I drew lines with a knife where I wanted the giant 'cracker' to break after being baked and it worked great. - 29 Sep 2008
