  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt and baking powder. Add the yogurt and mix together with a wooden spoon until all the ingredients are well combined.
  • Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead by hand for 5 minutes until the dough feels smooth, but some bumps are ok.
  • Divide the dough into 4 equal pieces and wrap each in plastic wrap. Store at room temperature for 20 minutes to allow the dough to rest.
  • Add flour to each dough ball with your hands and then use a rolling pin to flatten out the dough on a lightly floured surface.
  • Heat a cast iron skillet on medium high heat. Add olive oil or butter and cook the flatbreads one at a time for about 2-3 minutes per side until the bread is puffed and parts of it become golden brown.
  • Serve with homemade labneh, olives, tomatoes and cucumbers, if desired.


Storage: Store any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 5 days in the fridge.
Freezing Instructions: You can freeze the dough after wrapping it in the plastic wrap. Just place in a freezer-friendly container for up to 3 months. When ready to use, thaw the dough overnight in the refrigerator. Then let the dough sit at room temperature for about 20 minutes before rolling into flatbread sizes.
Substitutes: For best results, follow the recipe as is. However here are some common substitutes that would work well in this recipe.
  • Instead of all purpose flour, you can use self-rising flour, just make sure to skip the baking powder and salt in that case.
  • Instead of plain full fat yogurt, you can use greek yogurt, but you will need to reduce the flour amount to compensate for the reduced moisture amount.
