Default Carasau Bread Foto

This is a very simple recipe for a snake or for a fast food during the
hotter hours of the day. You need only the "Carasau bread" original from
Sardinia; a sort of sheet of pastry bread (like pizza but much more thin and
very very crisp). I don't know if you can find it.
Ingredients:
Sheets of "Carasau bread"
Little round tomatoes (quality "Pachino")
Good olive oil
salt
Garlic (if you want)
Basil or oregano

In a large dish put some pieces of "Carasau". Then put one stratum of
tomatoes (cutted in little pieces),oil, salt and basil. Cover with another
stratum of Pieces of Carasau, tomatoes and the same condiment of oil etc.
Serve at the moment this dish because the water contained in the tomatoes
could soften the crispness of the bread.

Have a good meal!!!! (Buon appetito)
Cheers

I love pane Carasau, and buy several packages every time I go to Italy
(it keeps forever). I don't know why, in Switzerland we can find just
about every grocery product marketed in Italy (albeit at a price), but
not pane Carasau!

What a BEAUTIFUL food picture, Pandora! Thank you. It looks like a
wonderful warm day snack, for sure. Is the mosaic tile background in
your courtyard? It's beautiful too.

Question: Is pene carasau a crisp flatbread? It looks lighter and
more delicate than any cracker bread I've seen. I wonder if we can
substitute another type of "cracker" bread (Scandinavian, Armenian)?

Thank you!!! Sorry for the "Snake" ((((
But I enjoy that you could appreciate it (In the photo).

Question: Is pene carasau a crisp flatbread?


Yes. Something like this: like a sheet of paper and very very crispy. It is
very difficult to make it by hand. You fin it in very big market.

Yes. It is the half of an half of a cracker!!!!

I wonder if we can
substitute another type of "cracker" bread (Scandinavian, Armenian)?

I serve a very similar thing, but with cubes of olive bread in place of
the flatbread. Delicious.

Ohhh! Nice! Have you got a photo?
I make olive bread for myself with the bread machine called "Alice". I send
you a photo.

Frankly, I'd never heard of carasau before you mentioned it. I'll ask
a couple of friends of Italian heritage if they know about it. If
they do, I might be able to find where it's baked here. Unfortunately
the Little Italy part of what we call North Beach isn't what it was 25
- 30 years ago, so there are many things Italian that we don't have
anymore... real Italian delis and the (fresh) pasta shop for starters.
Most of what's left is either Yuppy or touristy Italian.

I hope both of you post the recipes! I don't use a bread machine, so
if you have regular baking instructions that would be great.

Well, Pandora did kindly skip over your little typo, but remember
that "pAne" is bread, while "pEne" is... well, you guessed right

No, but next time I make it, I will post one. My tomatoes may even
ripen in a few weeks, and I can make it with my own tomatoes. That would
be exciting. (Right now, my tomato plant looks sick and infested, so I'm
not sure it'll end up actually ripening the dozens of little tomatoes on
it.)

Nice. :-)

I live in Oakland -- near San Francisco, in California. Because you've
been so sweet posting photos, here are some pictures of my neighborhood
and the places that we go:

Temescal, our cool neighborhood where we go to the cafe, and the shops:
