Ingredients

1 scant tablespoon fresh yeast

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus additional for dusting

3/4 teaspoon salt

7 ounces goat cheese, sliced

Directions

Special equipment:
a wood-fired oven
  1. Dissolve the fresh yeast in a small bowl of water. Set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, salt, dissolved yeast and 7 ounces water and beat with a mixer for 10 minutes. Allow to rest for 40 minutes.
  3. Bring a wood-fired oven to 550 to 650 degrees F.
  4. Divide the dough into 12 balls that are just under 3 ounces each, then roll each dough on a floured work surface until a thin disk-like shape is formed.
  5. Place the fouee disks in the oven only 2 at a time and cook until they puff up and are slightly browned in color, 1 minute. (If this is not achieved, it means your wood-fired oven is not hot enough yet.)
  6. Remove the fouee bread from the oven and slice open the top with a knife, making a pocket. Stuff with a large slice of goat cheese, then serve immediately. Repeat with the remaining dough and cheese.
