Add 1 cup flour to water mixture and stir to combine. Add 2 Tbsp. olive oil, 1 tsp. Saffron Salt, 1 tsp. Crushed Aleppo Pepper, and 1/2 tsp. Granulated Garlic to flour mixture and mix until just combined. Add remaining 3/4 cup flour and mix until dough pulls away from sides of bowl. Grease a 12-inch cast iron pan with 2 Tbsp. olive oil. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 12-inch disk. Lay dough into cast iron pan and cover with a clean kitchen towel. Turn oven off and place covered pan in oven for 20 min. Remove from oven and let sit covered 10 additional min. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine 2 Tbsp. olive oil, 1/2 tsp. Crushed Aleppo Pepper, and 1/2 tsp. Granulated Garlic. Brush dough with olive oil mixture. With your fingertips, lightly press 1/4-inch indents all over surface of dough. Return to oven and cook for 20 min.
