For the Dough:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon instant yeast
3/4 cup warm water
2 tablespoons olive oil
For the Filling:
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup crumbled feta cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley (optional)
For Cooking:
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
Olive oil or additional melted butter for brushing

Instructions :

Prepare the Dough:
In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, salt, sugar, and instant yeast.
Add the warm water and olive oil to the dry ingredients, mixing until a dough forms.
Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for 5-7 minutes, until it becomes smooth and elastic
Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a damp cloth, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour, or until it doubles in size.
Prepare the Filling:
In a medium bowl, mix together the shredded mozzarella, crumbled feta, shredded cheddar, and chopped parsley (if using).
Assemble the Flatbread:
Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Punch down the risen dough and divide it into 2 equal portions.
Roll out one portion of the dough on a lightly floured surface into a large circle, about 1/4 inch thick.
Spread half of the cheese mixture evenly over the dough, leaving a small border around the edges.
Roll out the second portion of dough into a similar-sized circle and place it over the cheese-covered dough.
Press the edges together to seal the flatbread.
Cook the Flatbread:
Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat and brush it with olive oil or melted butter.
Carefully transfer the assembled flatbread to the skillet and cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and crispy.
Brush the top of the cooked flatbread with melted butter.
Bake the Flatbread:
Transfer the cooked flatbread to the prepared baking sheet.
Bake in the preheated oven for an additional 10-12 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
Remove the flatbread from the oven and let it cool slightly before slicing.
Serve the cheesy stuffed flatbread warm, garnished with additional parsley if desired.
Enjoy this cheesy, gooey, and delicious flatbread as a snack, appetizer, or part of a main meal!
