2 ingredient flatbreads

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! 

The Ingredients

  • 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!).

The Instructions 

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!

    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!

    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

    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!

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

  7. 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

    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.

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

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

  11. 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!

  12. 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?

    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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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 🥰

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

  17. 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.

  18. 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!

      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.

  19. 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
