Could this be the last Flatbread Recipe you’ll ever need? Find Out!

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


  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:

    • In a dry, hot skillet over medium-high heat, place rolled-out dough.
    • Cook 2-4 min per side until golden brown and cooked through.

As pizza dough:

    • Preheat oven to 400ºF.
    • Place rolled out dough on a pizza pan or baking sheet.
    • Bake 5-10 min until firm and cooked through.
    • Top with desired toppings and bake another 5-10 min until pizza is golden brown.
    • Either freeze dough or any leftover cooked flatbreads.

5. Enjoy hot!

Unlike store-bought flatbreads that may contain preservatives and artificial ingredients, making your own ensures you’re eating wholesome ingredients.

Additionally, homemade flatbread is incredibly versatile and can be used in a myriad of dishes, from wraps to pizzas, and even desserts.

Besides the nutritional benefits, there’s a certain satisfaction and therapeutic element to kneading and rolling out your dough, making the process not just a culinary exercise, but a soothing activity as well.

Creative topping ideas for Your Flatbread

The beauty of flatbread lies in its versatility. While the recipe provided gives a nod to pizza, there are numerous ways to jazz up your flatbread. For a Mediterranean twist, consider spreading hummus, topped with sliced cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, kalamata olives, feta cheese, and a drizzle of olive oil. If you’re in the mood for something sweet, try slathering your flatbread with almond or peanut butter, sliced bananas, a sprinkle of chia seeds, and a drizzle of honey. Those craving an Asian flair might enjoy a spread of hoisin sauce, grilled chicken, scallions, and a sprinkle of sesame seeds. The possibilities are truly endless, allowing you to get creative and cater to your unique palate.
