EASY FLATBREAD

The magical 2-ingredient dough is not at all new, however recently it's gaining popularity. It's easy, does not require any raising time since there is no yeast involved, it's versatile and the final result is soft and delicious! You can use it to make bagels, pizza, pretzels, dinner rolls, flatbread, and pita bread. It is a mix of self-rising flour and Greek yogurt. I don't usually have self-rising flour on hand so I made my own mix.I also know that natural sour cream has a similar texture and consistency as Greek yogurtand it is perfect for this recipe.

Ingredients Needed:

  • self-rising flour OR all-purpose flour and baking powder
  • salt
  • Greek yogurt OR natural sour cream

What is Flatbread?

Flatbread is an unleavened bread, made without yeast. It is usually thin and crispy, perfect for breaking into pieces and dipping in curry or used for wraps with gyros meat or shawarma meat.

How to make 2-Ingredient Flatbread?

  • To make this soft and pliable flatbread, measure out flour, baking powder and salt and combine in a large mixing bowl.
  • Add natural sour cream and stir together with a wooden spoon or spatula.

  • Place on a floured surface and let rest for 20 minutes.
  • In the meantime, grease a cast iron skillet and set over medium to medium-high heat.

  • Form the dough into a log and cut into 8 pieces. Start in the middle of the dough log and cut each half into two until you have 8 pieces.
  • Form each piece of dough into a ball, flatten gently on a floured surface and roll out into a thin circle.

What Can I Substitute for Self-Rising Flour?

Self-rising flour is a mix of flour with a leavening agent, like baking powder. You can make your own and store in a containeror remember to add 1.5 teaspoons of baking powder and ¼ teaspoon of salt per 1 cup of flour needed.

No Yeast

To make a fluffy and soft flatbread without yeast, you will need another leavening agent. Self-rising flour is perfect for that because it contains baking powder. You can use store-bought self-rising flour or make your own mix. It's very easy! The flour along with Greek yogurt or natural sour cream (or coconut yogurt to keep it vegan) creates a soft and pliable flatbread.

How to Use Flatbread?

  • use it in place of a yeast pizza dough, top with tomato sauce, pepperoni and cheese and bake until cheese is melted. So good!
  • tore into pieces and serve with a big bowl of curry and rice.
  • use as a wrap to serve shawarma or gyros meat and vegetables
  • spread with hummus and top with veggies for a healthy lunch

    It’s soft and fluffy not to mention easy to make!!!
    If I want to use wholemeal flour what’s the ratio to white? Or can I just use SR wholemeal flour on its own as that’s my preference over white?

    Have you tried buttermilk or whole milk instead of yogurt? I usually don’t have yogurt on hand. Would I need to add any fat to it? Thanks

    This was soo good. I made some homemade gyros today with these. Huge hit! I have made pita before and could not get it to “puff” when cooking. These puffed! Yay. We loved this.

    Does it matter if it’s fat free or say 5% Greek yogurt?

    I am looking forward to making this. Can it be made a day in advance? What is the best way to re-heat it just before serving?

      Hi Paul! Yes, it is if you have self-rising flour. If not, you can easily make it with additional 2 ingredients. I hope this explains it!

      I'm going to assume we don't need the salt 🤔

        The recipe note states that baking powder and salt are not necessary with self rising flour.
