Why I love this recipe

  • It’s so darn easy. Just mix the ingredients into a dough, roll out the flatbreads, and cook them on the stove. It doesn’t get easier than this. 
  • Versatile. From pizzas to wraps and quesadillas, you can use this bread for every meal of the day. I’ll be sure to give you plenty of ideas later on.
  • No yeast needed. That also means you don’t have to activate the yeast, wait for the dough to rise, or knead it constantly!

“Very easy and taste great”Rosie

2 ingredient bread.

Ingredients needed

  • Self-rising flour. AKA all-purpose flour with baking powder and salt already added. If you don’t have any on hand, you can make your own with my simple homemade self-rising flour. Use gluten-free self-raising flour if needed.  
  • Greek yogurt. The lower the fat content of your Greek yogurt, the better it will mix with the flour. Non-fat Greek yogurt worked the best for me, but reduced-fat and full-fat also worked. You can even use sour cream.

How to make 2-ingredient flatbread

I’ve included step-by-step photos below to make this recipe easy to follow at home. For the full printable recipe instructions and ingredient quantities, scroll to the recipe card at the bottom of this post.

Step 1- Make the dough. In a large bowl, combine the flour and yogurt with a wooden spoon. Use your hands to incorporate the two until you have a smooth ball of dough. 

Step 2- Divide the dough. Sprinkle flour on the dough ball and transfer it to a lightly floured surface. Press it into a circular shape and divide it into 8 even portions.

Step 3- Shape the dough. Re-flour the surface and, using a rolling pin, roll out one portion of the dough into a circular shape. Repeat until you have 8 rolled-out flatbreads. 

Step 4- Cook. Heat a large skillet on medium-high heat. Once hot, cook for 2-3 minutes, then flip and cook for another 2 minutes. Repeat with the remaining flatbread.

Ways to serve flatbread

Luckily, there are no wrong answers when it comes to what to serve alongside or use your 2-ingredient bread. Here are some ideas:

  • Flatbread wrap. Filled with your favorite fillings, like gyro meat or cauliflower hummus
  • Flatbread pizza. Replace traditional pizza crust and top it with sauce and your favorite pizza toppings. Grill in the oven until it’s warm and the cheese has melted. 
  • Flatbread quesadillas. Fill half a flatbread with cheese, avocado, and beans, and fold in half. Heat on a non-stick pan until golden brown, flip, and cook for another minute. 
  • Flatbread PB&J. The classic in flatbread form! Spread generously with peanut butter and jelly! 
  • Breakfast wraps. Fill your wrap with scrambled eggs, cheese, and barbecue sauce, and grill on a skillet or non-stick pan. 
  • Dipping in your favorite soups and stews, like pumpkin curry soup or cream of asparagus soup.

Arman’s recipe tips

  • Make it dairy-free. Fermented coconut yogurt makes a great vegan substitution. 
  • Use whole wheat flour. Plan on adding a little extra yogurt. 
  • Avoid using ‘natural’ yogurt. I tried this recipe with natural plain yogurt, and unfortunately, the dough was WAY too sticky and never developed the proper texture. 
  • Know when to flip. Once you see little bubbles forming on the dough’s surface, that’s when it’s time to flip. 
  • Add flavor. Brush a little olive oil or butter on the flatbread, and if you really want to take it up a notch, sprinkle on some minced garlic.

How to store leftovers

To store: If you plan on eating your flatbread within 5 days, it can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container. If you want to keep it fresher for longer, refrigerate it for up to 2 weeks. 

To freeze: Place leftover flatbreads in a ziplock bag and freeze them for up to 6 months.

    Wow. Just wow. These are amazing! Honestly, I didn’t think they’d be this good when I looked at the ingredients list (sorry!), but they were delicious. I brushed some melted butter, garlic and herbs on them once cooked. I’ve been asked to make them again by my partner (who is incredibly fussy!). Thanks again.

    I had to make some adjustments because I’m gluten intolerant. I used a gluten free rice flour since rice flour and did use link to make it self rising. I chose rice flour because it’s lighter than other gluten free flours. I used fage 0% milk fat Greek yogurt and added 1 egg for richness and they were perfect. I have found so many ways to use these and added different spices for different dishes and they always come out perfect. This is such a great base recipe to play with and it works great with gluten free flour.

  8. Great recipe and easy to adapt.
    Didn’t have SR flour so added teaspoon of baking powder to my plain flour, also used 4.5% yogurt and although was sticky it still made perfect flat breads to go with my vegetarian curry.

  9. Love your recipes. So innovative. Thanks for everything. Love to cook and but as an 83 year old diabetic I have to be careful. My husband enjoys your food and I want him to enjoy them too.

    My whole family loved this! Very simple to make too! Thank you for this recipe!! I just added baking powder to my GF flour to make it a self rising flour!

        Just made these flatbreads and they are delicious!!! Also made the self rising flour because I didn’t have any in store. Thank you for the recipe.

    1. Hi…I’ve never seen vegan Greek yogurt in any store. Can you tell me the brand you use and perhaps where I can purchase it?? Thank you so much!

    I use this recipe for all my dough recipes. Just made the naan bread added jalapeños to the dough and made a egg salad sandwich. So versatile

      Excellent recipe, easy and turns out perfect with little fuss. I added the 1/2 tsp of salt and it was too much for me. Next time no salt 🙂

      Thank you for sharing! ❤️

    I have made a lot of different recipes of flat bread. And this one is by far my favorite. No oil needed in the recipe or when you cook these. Very healthy and inexpensive to make. So glad I found this.
    Thank you,

    Thanks Arman, due to the time difference I did chill them before your reply!! oops. However, they were amazing, so thank you for the recipe. I thought when I cooked them, they would be too stiff to roll but I stored them in foil and what a result – AMAZING

  14. 5 stars
    Have to admit i was sceptical, particularly when reading the comments from people who were not successful. Well i didnt need to worry. These were perfect, so easy, took 10 minutes from start to finish, they rose beautifully so we could use them as pockets for the homemade kebabs. My fussy son said it was better than take away. Result!

      This flatbread is amazing!!! I bought a huge container of organic Greek yogurt at Costco and needed a way to use some of it. Not knowing how much I would like the flatbread, I only made a half recipe, using organic flour in the self-rising flour recipe you linked. It was so fast and tasted even better than I expected! Thanks for the great recipe! I’ll make a full batch next time!

  15. 5 stars
    I seem to remember being told to check the date on self rising flour. If the date is expired, the product won’t rise.

  16. I’ve recently become gluten sensitive and I pretty much hate all gluten free bread products.

    I made these using Freee’s gluten free self raising flour.

    I made one small switch by replacing a tablespoon of the flour with a tablespoon of milled linseed..

    I’m in heaven these are so tasty and really do taste so good

  17. 5 stars
    Whoa, these are awesome..i can’t believe how yummy they are, I do believe making your own self raising flour gives them a better taste. Awesome, easy and affordable.

    We love this recipe. I tried this for the first time this afternoon. Mine were a bit thinner than the photographs but were still flexible and delicious. This will be my go to recipe for flatbreads.

  19. Two ingredients! Wow. It really works and so quick,easy and so tasty. Used it with lamb, tomato, lettuce, cucumber and some mint. Thanks

  20. I’m not vegan…yet, but I do enjoying trying to eat healthy. Can’t wait to try this.
    Thx for sharing

  21. This recipe was perfect and super easy to make! Turned out great. My family loved it so much they asked me to make it again tomorrow!

  22. Could you mix some chickpea flour in for a higher protein content or would that ruin it? Should I be looking at the oat flour recipe?

  23. 5 stars
    I haven’t made this recipe, but would like to. But, I’m wondering where do you find vegan greek yogurt? I can’t even find it on Amazon. Could you provide a link? Sandy

    1. Hi! I use the Nakula brand, it’s widely available in Australia. You can try a cultured vegan yogurt, they have a similar consistency to Greek, or unsweetened coconut.

  24. Thank you for the reply.
    A question. It will not smell eggs? Can I make the recipe with coconut flour and yoghurt?
    Thanks in advance.

  25. What about coconut flour or almond flour. I’m in a keto diet. Or please if you can recommend me a keto bread recipe. Thank you 🥰

  26. I don’t have a stove top. Could this be done in a convection oven? Or a toaster oven?

  27. I was nervous. Had to make my own self rising, and had to sift through a strainer. Then it felt too dry at first, too sticky next, and then too dry again. And no oil? Thought I was doomed. They turned out delicious. Hideous (or homey) looking, but so good. I put a pinch too much salt, and they were all rolled to different thicknesses, but wow. They were still great, moist. Success! Thanks for this. Can’t find yeast anywhere these days!

  28. Is this an April Fool’s joke ? I couldn’t get them off my fingers. Had to cook my hands with the mix.

    1. Sounds like you’ve definitely made an error on your part- this has been made by thousands successfully, and it is a very foolproof recipe.

      I hope the hand wasn’t burnt when you cooked it.

  29. I made this flatbread recipe over the weekend, and it turned out great! Super simple and delicious! I used the flatbreads to make pizzas, and I couldn’t have been happier. Since we have only two people in our household, I split the recipe in half, and it was perfect. I was a little concerned that we’d be able to taste the Greek yogurt (I hate even just the smell of it), but there wasn’t even a hint of it. Thank you so much!

    1. 5 stars
      This recipe is very similar to one I use to make pizza bases, but they usually turn out not very bendy, so I was a little sceptical. However, I layered the cooked flatbreads with a slightly damp tea towel, and they were excellent!
      I also only got 6 flatbread out of this recipe, but there were only two of us, so that was plenty.

  30. I tried the naan tonight and uh boy it didn’t work. So sad! I used both self rising flour and non fat Greek yogurt. The mix was so dry it wouldn’t form a ball and I could puke manage to form 6 small balls, flattened as best I could and they didn’t puff but remained very dense. Help

    1. Hi Annika- it sounds like it would have been the brand of flour you used- this should not be dry at all- if anything, more moist and soft.

      I’d double check the brand and quantaties you used.

        Have made the flatbreads many times for family gatherings. Spread with garlic butter. Absolutely divine
