An Easy Yogurt Flatbread Recipe

Flatbread with a black spatula

I don’t think that I am the only one who likes bread. I can’t be alone with this amazing love of mine. Not all loaves of bread are created equal. Some taste better than others, some aren’t as thick and chewy.

And let’s be honest, some homemade bread is so much better than store-bought bread. Last Thanksgiving, I had some homemade that was so full of flavor. It was chewy and delicious. It could be eaten by itself but it went great with everything and tasted delicious as french toast. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get the recipe, but you can bet your bottom dollar you know where I am going for Thanksgiving this year.

I would love to say that it’s for the awesome people who hosted but let’s be honest it’s for the bread. HA!

Just kidding, they are pretty awesome people and have a good sense of wine, so obviously we must be friends.

While bread is important, flatbread is also something we should look into. Maybe you aren’t a converted flatbread believer and that’s okay. We all have sinned and fallen short of his glory, yes including me. (Not sure if you got the reference, but :D)

I love flatbread with curry, feta cheese, cucumbers, and just about anything else you can think of. It even goes well with yogurt.

Flatbread can be a very tricky thing to work with if your consistency is off or you add too much baking powder the taste can easily go from good to terrible.

As long as you master the basic recipe then you can add anything you want within reason. If you plan to add anything that has excess liquid then be sure to add more flour and baking powder to balance the recipe. 1:1 ratio for additional baking powder and flour.

Suggested add-ins

Parsley flakes

Garlic paste with dried oregano

crushed blueberries

Flavored yogurt


Large Frying pan

Large mixing bowl

measuring cups

Rolling pin




1 tsp of baking powder

1/2 tbsp of sugar

2 cups of flour

1 cup of plain yogurt (You can also use flavored yogurt)

2 tbsp of olive oil


  1. In a large bowl mix all of your dry ingredients together.
  2. Add in the yogurt and knead until smooth.
  3. Cover the dough with a wet cloth and let it rest for 20 minutes
  4. Once the dough has risen then knead it again for a few minutes.
  5. Lightly flour a flat surface and cut the dough into four pieces.
  6. Take one piece and knead it into a circle.
  7. Heat stove to medium heat with a large frying pan. (I used a cast iron pan)
  8. Use your rolling pin and roll out the dough as you flip it and sprinkle flour on the surface with each turn.
  9. When the dough is 1/2 of a centimeter add it to the frying pan.
  10. Drizzle olive oil on the top of the flatbread and then flip.
  11. Let each side fry for 2 minutes or until it gets the colour you desire.
  12. Repeat this process until all the flatbreads have been fried.
  13. You can have this with any meat or dip you want.
  14. Enjoy your hard work!
