Really easy to make soft Flatbreads. Just 3 ingredients, no yeast, cooked in 5 minutes. Served with homemade tzatziki and dripping with garlic butter. These recipe can also be turned into pizzas with toppings, used for sandwiches or as a replacement for naan breads.

Look, I don’t mean to be dramatic. BUT. How have I lived my whole 27 (cough – 37) years without realising how easy it is to make flatbread?

These simple flatbreads were SO delicious (and obviously all things in life are better when coated in melting, delicious, herby garlic butter). I could literally eat them every single day.

 

✅ Just 3 ingredients.

✅ No kneading.

✅ Cooked in just 5 minutes.

Dairy, well cow’s milk specifically has been getting a rough ride in the press in recent times, so I came up with a recipe that can swap cows milk products for alternatives, and test them out. On this occasion I tried goats milk in this easy flatbread recipe (it is supposed to be easier to digest.)

Goats’ milk yoghurt works particularly well in this easy flatbread recipe, as the refreshing tang keeps them light.

I used the regular Goats’ Milk Natural Yoghurt for these, but you could try it with regular yoghurt or low fat yoghurt too.

Can flatbread be gluten free?

To make gluten free flatbread you would substitute the self raising flour for a gluten free version.

Also double check your baking powder to ensure that’s gluten free too.

Can you make flatbreads in the oven?

Whilst I have chosen to fry these for speed, you can cook flatbread in the oven. They would need be cooked on a very hot baking tray at 200C for between 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown.

For even better results bake them on a pizza stone if you have one – I haven’t tried this particular pizza stone but it’s been recommended and is under a tenner… bargain.

Tips for making Easy Flatbreads:

  • The flatbread dough doesn’t need any kneading, but it will be very sticky, make sure you use extra flour to bring it together.
  • For an extra treat I cut pieces of the hard goats’ cheese and rolled them inside the dough before frying…yummy.
  • If you have left over garlic butter you can wrap in greaseproof paper and freeze it.

 

  • These flatbreads are best eaten on the day they are made, but they will last a couple more days if kept in an airtight container, they will need refreshing by heating through quickly in the oven or grill.
  • This is the griddle pan that I used Pro cook cast iron griddle, I really like it as its reversible as has a flat side which is perfect for pancakes too.
  • I used goats’ milk yoghurt in this recipe which gave a deliciously tangy flavour which we loved but you could use any natural yoghurt.

What else could you do with flatbreads?

You can make flatbread pizza using the flatbread as a quick pizza base, simply top with tomato puree and add your favourite toppings, a simple margarita would be George and Harriet’s top pick.

Easy Flatbreads Recipe

Really easy to make soft Flatbread. Just 3 ingredients, no yeast, cooked in 5 minutes. Served with homemade tzatziki and dripping with garlic butter.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 8 Flatbreads

Ingredients 

  • 450 ml Yogurt
  • 450 g Self raising flour
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • Extra flour for rolling

For the garlic butter:

  • 100 g Butter
  • 4 Cloves Garlic, Peeled and crushed
  • 10 g Fresh parsley, Finely chopped
  • Sea salt

For the tzatziki dip:

  • 200 g Yogurt
  • 0.5 Cucumber, Grated, liquid squeezed out
  • 20 g Fresh mint, Finely chopped
  • Sea salt

Instructions 

For the flatbreads:

  • To make the flat breads, mix the yoghurt, flour and baking powder in a large bowl. It will be very sticky but keep going and it will get smoother. (There's no need to knead it though.)
  • Cut it in half, both pieces in half again and each piece in half again, so you end up with 8 even pieces.
  • Using plenty of extra flour and a well floured rolling pin, roll the balls of dough into flat round shapes. (I cook 2 at a time and roll the next ones whilst they cook.)
  • Heat a griddle pan or heavy frying pan until hot and cook each flatbread for about 3 minutes on each side, until golden and cooked through. (You can keep warm in an oven on low heat if you're serving immediately.)

To make the garlic butter:

  • Mix softened butter with the garlic, parsley and sea salt. Spread over the flatbreads when you're ready to serve.

To make the tzatziki:

  • Mix the yoghurt, grated cucumber, mint and salt well and pop in a bowl to serve as a dip.

  1. Just wondering do these fall apart? Ive made some before with sr flour and they don’t hold together.. would love to try again could you offer suggestions thx

  2. Hi! I am going to try this with my family! Would I be able to use Greek style yogurt for this do you think?

    1. 5 stars
      So quick and easy to make and taste great. I’m not a cook really, so never thought I’d be making my own breads/pies etc but it’s all so easy and delicious using your recipes!

  3. These are brilliant. Made them tonight to go with the slow cooker beef curry and they were perfect. I halved the recipe but it’s still generous and the output is 👌 My 2 yr old was a big fan as well which is always a win!

  4. 5 stars
    These were so quick and easy to make and delicious too. I was wondering if it was possible to freeze the dough once it was made for future use?
