  • 2 tsp. active dry yeast
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 2 1//2-3 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 large egg


  1. In a small bowl, combine yeast, sugar and warm water. Stir to dissolve yeast and sugar. Then let sit about 10 minutes until frothy.
  2. whisk in the oil, yogurt and egg until combined.
  3. In separate bowl, combine 1 cup flour and salt.
  4. add the wet ingredients to the flour/salt mixture and stir to combine.
  5. continue to add 1/2 cup flour at a time until you can no longer mix with a spoon, about 1-1 1/2 cups.
  6. Now turn the dough out onto lightly floured surface and knead for about 3 minutes until smooth. The dough needs to be very smooth but not sticky.
  7. cover the dough and let rise in warm place for about an hour.
  8. After dough has risen place on floured surface again and divide into 8 pieces.
  9. Heat a large, heavy bottomed skillet over medium heat. (I use my cast iron skillet) working with one piece of dough at a time, roll dough into disc about 1/4" thick and 6" in diameter.
  10. Place the rolled out dough onto hot skillet and cook until bottom is golden brown and bubbles have formed on the surface. Flip dough and cook until golden brown
  11. Stack the flatbreads on plate. Serve as is or brush with melted butter, sprinkle with fresh herbs, use for sandwiches, roll ups, personal pizzas and much more.
