Matzo, also known as Matz á or matzoh, is a kind of sour bread, which is mainly made of flour and water. It is very traditional in Jewish Passover and is also known as “freedom bread”, although it is also called “pain bread” because it represents the pain of exclusion and exile.

In pesaj, bread is not edible, so it must be made within a few minutes, and even without yeast, do not let the dough stand still to prevent the bread from turning white. There are several types of matzo or Matz á, and there are different considerations in the production process. They were originally made from barley flour rather than wheat flour. But we now have the opportunity to elaborate on the origins and varieties of this absolutely simple bread.

Today, we want to show you this roasted olive oil pad. It doesn’t belong to any traditional sour bread, but it’s a rich, delicious, fast and very easy to make bread. We hope you can encourage yourself to try. In about 30 minutes, you can have a newly made pan, which is suitable for any food and is very suitable for meze.

Put the flour in a bowl, add olive oil and water, you can mix them together and try to emulsify. Add a little salt, mix all the ingredients together to form a ball, then put it on the workbench and glue it together until you get a uniform dough.

You can make a lot of this kind of dough as you like. We made some easy to handle small pieces on the grill and practiced them during meals, so we cut about eight dough balls.

Heat the grill (you can make it in a pan) to a temperature slightly above medium heat. Put the dough ball on the roller until you get a very thin dough so you can lift it up without breaking it and take it off the roller as if you want to roll it up.

Bake one on the grill, then another. In a few minutes, it will be finished. You can easily see its color. When you take out the bread, wrap it on the cloth, just like we make piadin.

You are ready for Mazu or Maza, and you will surprise your guests. Remember, you can also bake it in the oven, which is the traditional way, so if you bake it in the oven, you can also use it to make this bread.
