No-Bake Flatbread Recipe

No-Bake Flatbread Recipe

Many kinds of flatbread recipe have been around since the time of the Egyptians. It was a staple food during that era, and are still so till today. You can still see flatbreads on grocery shelves. Meanwhile, restaurants use them as a side dish or as a main ingredient in some dishes. Amazingly, it never went out of style despite its long history. That’s because it’s an incredibly versatile food. You can enjoy flatbread in many ways, through mini pizzas, tortillas, or even quesadillas. This bread’s flaky and crispy texture is light in every bite, so you won’t feel bloated even after finishing a few.

Besides being flat, what sets it apart from other kinds of bread is the process of making one. The traditional flatbread recipe, also known as unleavened bread, generally doesn’t use yeast and was originally cooked over hot stones. Yeast is the ingredient that makes dough rise when baking. However, other types of flatbread, such as pita bread and focaccia, are leavened and use yeast. But most, from Roti to Chapati, are unleavened. Flatbreads are great substitutes for your regular loaf of bread. When eating, it redirects your taste buds to the flavors of the filling. So, you end up tasting more of what’s inside your sandwich than the denseness of your bread.

Prep: 15 mins
Rest: 5 mins
Cook: 10 mins
Total: 30 mins


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour, add more for dusting
  • 1 cup thick yogurt
  • cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp garlic powder


  1. Combine melted butter and garlic powder. Whisk until dissolved and then set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients together. Mix until the flour has absorbed the yogurt.

  3. Dust a bit of flour on a flat surface and knead the dough for 4 to 5 minutes until it is smooth.

  4. Split into 6 equal balls of dough, roughly 2 oz each, and let it sit for 5 minutes.

  5. Roll dough balls out into a circle roughly 8-inch x 8-inch, or as thin as possible. This will allow the flatbreads to cook evenly. Repeat until you have rolled out all your doughs.

  7. Place that side down onto your skillet.

  8. Cook flatbread for 1 minute or less on each side, until bubbles and blisters appear on the surface.

  9. Remove from pan and brush with garlic butter.

  10. Serve immediately or cover with a towel to keep warm.

Recipe Notes

Dust the rolling pin with flour so that the dough won't stick to it. Also, since the dough cooks fast, remember to keep an eye on it so it doesn't get burn marks while cooking.
