Carpentry question

I'm building a new cabin door out of 1/2" plywood with a frame (on one side only) of 1x4s. I have just finished putting the frame all around the door. I had planned for a single horizontal center brace, which should be glued/screwed on next. However -- the plywood is slightly twisted. I want to know how to get it to lie flatter so that it will seat properly in the doorway.

I could put two horizontal braces in the middle of the frame. Or I could cut a new diagonal brace to run counter to the twist. Which is more likely to work?
