The Easiest Flatbread Recipe

IMG_7037.JPG

Clearly I need to work on my dough rolling skills, but this was such a fun and easy dinner to make. I saw this idea for a Two Ingredient Flatbread on BuzzFeed‘s Tasty and then the day after on Pinch of Yum‘s Instagram. It was a sign; I needed to make this. That coupled with my pizza cravings, I added fresh basil, mozzarella, red peppers, red onion and zucchini to a flatbread for some homemade ‘za. The flatbread is just self-rising flour mixed with full-fat plain Greek yogurt. Each flatbread packs 10 g protein per serving. Cook two ways: place in a skillet for a naan-like bread or bake as a pizza crust.

Ingredients (serves 2-4).

  • 1¼ c self-rising flour
  • 1 c plain full-fat Greek yogurt

Directions.

  1. In a bowl, mix together flour and yogurt with a spoon until dough forms and all the flour is evenly and smoothly incorporated. (You may need to use your hands to help flour fully mix in; knead for about 1 min.) With your hands, gently form dough into a ball.
  2. On a clean, floured surface, cut dough into 4 wedges. (For a larger flatbread, only cut into 2 pieces.)
  3. Roll out each wedge, adding flour as needed to prevent sticking. I rolled my flatbread until about 1/4″ thick with about an 6-8″ diameter.
  4. Cook dough based on either method below.
    • For naan-like flatbread:
      1. In a dry, hot skillet over medium-high heat, place rolled-out dough.
      2. Cook 2-4 min per side until golden brown and cooked through.
    • As pizza dough:
      1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
      2. Place rolled out dough on a pizza pan or baking sheet.
      3. Bake 5-10 min until firm and cooked through.
      4. Top with desired toppings and bake another 5-10 min until pizza is golden brown.
  5. Either freeze dough or any leftover cooked flatbreads.
  6. Enjoy hot!
