Pane Carasau

Pane Carasau is a traditional flatbread from Sardinia, made with simple basic ingredients as semolina flour, water, salt and a small amount of fresh yeast.

It is made by baking a very flatten bread dough which is taken out the oven when it grows in a big bubble, divided in 2 disks and then baked again.

It is very thin and it becomes very crispy, usually in the form of a dish half a meter wide.

When you eat it, it cracks always with a different sound, the reason why it’s also called “carta da musica” (sheet of paper for playing music).

It can be enjoyed like a snack, and then used for savory or sweet recipes as well.

The most traditional way to prepare Pane Carasau are:

. Pane Guttiau – Pane Carasau spreaded with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Rosemary and baked again.

. Pane Fratau or Frattau – Pane Carasau with Tomato, Pecorino Cheese from Sardinia and Eggs.
