Lavash is an Armenian flat bread. Lavash is one of the most widespread types of bread in Armenia. Lavash, though usually called Armenian flatbread, also has Iranian roots and is now eaten throughout the Middle East and around the world. Lavash is made with flour, water, and salt. The thickness of the bread varies depending on how thin it was rolled out. Traditionally the dough is rolled out flat and slapped against the hot walls of a clay oven. While quite flexible when fresh, lavash dries out quickly and becomes brittle and hard.
