  • Millet Dough
  • 1 (1⁄2-ounce) envelope dry active yeast
  • 3⁄4 cup plus 1 tablespoon lukewarm water
  • 1⁄2 cups high-gluten or bread flour
  • 1⁄2 cups millet flour
  • 1⁄3 cup hulled millet
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon sugar

Kalamata Olive and Cheese Topping

  • 1⁄4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1⁄2 cups shredded four-cheese blend (fontina, Gruyère, provolone, Asiago), divided
  • 1⁄2 cups kalamata olives, pitted and halved, divided
  • 3 cups loosely packed spring greens


Millet Dough:

  • In small bowl, combine yeast and water. Stir gently to combine. Set aside until frothy, approximately 5 minutes.
  • In a large bowl, combine high-gluten or bread flour, millet flour, millet, salt, baking powder, and sugar. Stir to combine.
  • Slowly incorporate yeast-water mixture into flour mixture, stirring until a dough forms. Refrigerate overnight.

Kalamata Olive and Cheese Topping

  • Bake each flatbread on the preheated baking stone until crust is golden and cheese is melted and bubbly, 8 to 12 minutes. Top each flatbread cup spring greens.
  • Cut flatbread into bite-size pieces. Serve warm.
