Vegan Flatbread from Sardinia

Ciao a tutti!

Pane carasau is a traditional flatbread of Sardinia: and it is 100% vegan.

The flatbread is actually a quite ancient recipe and can keep for months. Ingredients are water, salt, flour and yeast: exactly what bread ingredients should be!

It can be similar to the flatbread found in the middle east and many other parts of the world. Many times this flatbread is used as a base for other recipes, such as lasagna.

It can be found all throughout Sardinia and has the nickname “music sheet” because of its crunchy consistency. The sardinian word carasare means to cook twice.

After the dough is made, it should be rolled out into very thin sheets and then ideally cooked in a wood oven at a very high temperature (450°-500° Celcius). It usually inflates like a balloon.
