A wonderful talented friend gave me this recipe in 2010. Al is a professor, a glass blower, a fisherman, and a Vineyard seasonal resident, and he cooks for a group of friends each day. He's living and eating healthy, and he created this dough. I am thrilled he will let me share it with you all. He's still experimenting with the measurements of flour, he says! It's great baked on a charcoal grill.
