Easy Flatbread Recipe (no yeast needed)

By Alexandra Caspero on August 9, 2022

A quick homemade flatbread recipe no yeast needed! If you love soft, pillowy flatbreads then you’re going to want to try these simple flatbreads. A must for sandwiches or to dip in hummus!

It’s no secret that we love sandwiches in our house. My smoky tofu sandwich, chickpea salad sandwich and green goddess sandwich are some of my absolute favorites that we eat week after week.

Last week I made my eggplant gyro recipe and decided that homemade flatbreads would make that recipe even better. This flatbread recipe is so simple– all you need is a handful of ingredients and you don’t need any yeast to make these!

They remind me of a mix between a flour tortilla and naan. They are thicker than a tortilla and slightly pillowy, like naan. Either way they are delicious slathered with homemade hummus, avocado chickpea salad or any type of wrap sandwich!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup milk (I used soy)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Instructions

  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a stand mixer or food processor fitted with a dough blade or dough hook. Process and mix until dough forms into a ball. If the ball is sticky, add flour a tablespoon at a time. If you don’t have a stand mixer, mix all of the ingredients in a large bowl until combined and then knead into a dough.
  2. Roll the ball on a floured surface. Divide in half and roll each half into a ball. Now, divide in half again and roll into a ball. Divide in half again and roll into a ball, you should now have 8 small balls.
  3. Lightly dust each ball with flour and roll into a circle with a rolling pin (or bottle of wine in a pinch)!
  4. Heat a cast-iron stove over medium-high heat. One at a time, place the flatbreads on the pan and cook for 1-2 minutes per side. Repeat with the rest of the flatbreads.

Notes

  • These are best the same day!
  • To make these garlic flatbreads, mince fresh garlic into olive oil then brush onto the flatbreads while cooking.
  • To make these cinnamon flatbreads, brush with melted butter after cooking then sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
