With all the craziness at the grocery stores lately, bread can be a tough item to sometimes find. So, today I’m sharing a quick and easy recipe for homemade flatbread! This recipe is also a fantastic way to introduce kids to simple, tasty, basic cooking techniques!
This bread is super versatile, use it to wrap up your favorite sandwhich meats and cheeses, use it to dip in hummus, or greek yogurt dip, fill it with taco or fajita fillings, make mini pizzas, or add sweetened cream cheese and fresh fruit for a healthy delicious dessert! It really doesn’t get any better than this!
Another big plus for this recipe it uses very few, simple, everyday ingredients! You probably have everything you need to make this right now!!
Here’s what you need!
2c. All purpose flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1tsp sea salt
1Tbsp oil, butter, or shortening
11/3c. Luke warm water
Optional: seasoning mix like southwest seasoning, garlic herb seasoning etc… Add to your own tastes
In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt. Stir until well blended. Add 1c. of water and oil and stir to bring ingredients together, add additional water as needed until dough is the consistency of sticky pizza dough. Knead for another minute or two until all the extra bits are gathered up out of the bowl by the dough. When you have the dough together remove from bowl, grease bowl with a little oil and replace dough turning over once to coat with the oil. When you touch your dough it will depress without bouncing back. This is perfect!
Allow dough to rest cover with a damp towel for about 15-20 minutes. This will allow the gluten to rest and make the dough easier to roll out.
Once rested cut into 6 pieces and roll into thin (tortilla thickness) irregular rounds they do not need to be perfect!
Preheat a non-stick pan or lightly greased pan on the stovetop to medium heat. Add flatbreads one at a time allow to brown slightly and turn over, remove from heat and serve warm, or allow to cool and freeze for later use!
Simple. Delicious. Versatile. Perfect! Enjoy!
