Easy homemade flatbreads made with just 2 simple ingredients! No yeast, no water, and no dairy needed, they are PERFECT to make wraps, flatbread pizzas and more. Easily made vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free.
Ever since many of you have told me you have stocked up on pantry essentials and staples, you’ve also told me one VERY interesting thing- You have an abundance of flour.
I’m reading more and more articles about people stockpiling flour and other baking flours, without knowing what to do with them.
With more and more time spent at home, we CAN make use of it and have some fun in the kitchen.
Now, if you are anything like me, when it comes to bread, toast and sliced bread are very low on my list.
Give me any other type of bread and I will ALWAYS take it before anything else.
One of my favorite kinds of bread is, of course, the flatbread!
We are back again with the famous 2 ingredient weight watchers dough. We’ve already loved the 2 ingredient bagels, 2 ingredients soft pretzels, 2 ingredient pizza dough and the delicious 2 ingredient naan.
Today, we are enjoying 2 ingredient flatbread!
Is flatbread healthy?
The media and various health sources have seemed to make us see bread as something we should NOT be enjoying regularly. However, bread products can be part of a healthy diet and are a staple in most countries.
Flatbreads are one of the healthiest bread varieties you can get. They are generally lower in calories, high in fiber and contain very little fat.
What makes a flatbread LESS healthy is what you spread on it or fill it with!
How to make flatbread from scratch
Seriously, this homemade flatbread is foolproof- 2 ingredients and less than 10 minutes!
- Self-rising flour– I used gluten-free self-rising flour (I love this brand!) but if you don’t have self-rising flour on hand, you can make your own.
- Greek Yogurt– The lower the fat content of your Greek yogurt, the better it will mix with the flour. Non-fat Greek yogurt and Vegan Greek yogurt are best (but reduced-fat and full-fat Greek yogurt work well too!).
You’ll start by combining your self-rising flour with Greek yogurt in a large mixing bowl. Use a wooden spoon and mix well, until combined. Use your hands and mix very well together, and form a ball of dough.
Then, you’ll want to lightly flour a wooden or kitchen surface with a little extra flour. Sprinkle a tablespoon or two on top of the ball of dough you’d formed before. Transfer the ball of dough onto the floured surface and press into a circular shape. Now, you’ll want to divide the dough into 8 even portions.
Re-flour the surface and get one piece of the dough. Roll it into a circular shape, and flatten it with the palm of your hand. Use a rolling pin to roll it out into a circular shape, to your desired thickness. Repeat the process until all the balls of dough have been formed into flatbreads.
Finally, heat a non-stick pan on medium heat. When hot, place a flatbread on top and dry cook (no oil!) for 2-3 minutes, before flipping and cooking for a further 2 minutes. Repeat the process until all the flatbreads are cooked.
Can I substitute the self-rising flour?
No- the flour used MUST be self-rising, or at least a homemade self-rising flour.
Either standard self-rising flour (self-raising) or gluten-free self-rising flour work. If you choose to make your own, you can use all-purpose flour, wholewheat flour or white flour.
If you want to make a flatbread using oat flour, try this 2-ingredient flourless flatbread.
Can I use natural yogurt instead of Greek yogurt?
I DO NOT recommend using natural or any other type of yogurt that isn’t of the Greek variety. You will find that the dough becomes extremely sticky, and requires adding excess amounts of yogurt to make it remotely thick and malleable.
Then, once you try and cook it, it will be undercooked in the center and not rise as you’d like it to.
Is this vegan?
Ever heard of VEGAN Greek Yogurt?
Yes, it does exist! In fact, this recipe uses Dairy Free Greek Yogurt which is 100% vegan!
With that said, this recipe has also been tested with coconut yogurt, and that too works provided it is thick.
Some coconut yogurts are watery and will not work.
Storing, Freezing and re-heating Flatbreads
This easy 2 ingredient flatbread can easily be frozen to enjoy later.
To store: If you plan on eating your flatbread within 5 days, they can be stored at room temperature, in a sealed container.
If you want to let them last a little longer, refrigerate them. They will keep fresh refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.
To freeze: Place leftover flatbreads in a ziplock bag and store in the freezer. They will keep fresh frozen for up to 6 months.
To thaw and reheat: Allow flatbread to thaw to room temperature. To re-heat, warm-up flatbreads either in a preheated oven (180C/350), on the non-stick pan, or in the microwave.
How many carbs are in a flatbread?
Store-bought flatbreads can contain up to 52 grams of carbohydrates in one single flatbread.
In my recipe, each flatbread yields 19 grams of carbs.
What to put on a flatbread?
- Flatbread Wrap– The traditional way- Enjoy a flatbread with your favorite wrap fillings- salad, cheese, hummus, etc.
- Flatbread Pizza– Replace a traditional pizza crust and top a flatbread with sauce and your favorite pizza toppings. Grill in the oven until the warm and the cheese has melted.
- Flatbread Quesadilla– Fill half a flatbread with cheese, avocado, beans, etc and fold in half. Heat on a non-stick pan until golden brown, flip and cook a further minute.
- Breakfast Wraps- Fill your wrap with scrambled eggs/tofu, vegan cheese and barbecue sauce, and grill on a skillet or non-stick pan.
- PB & J- The classic in flatbread form! Spread generously with peanut butter and jelly!
