Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 15 min
Ready in: 25 min
Yields: Serves 3-6


  • 2 cups unbleached flour
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • olive oil
  1. Into a mixing bowl, add the flour, water and salt. Mix until the dough is flaky and pretty dry to the touch. You do want it to stick together, just not too moist.
  2. Flour a flat surface and knead the dough for a minute or so. Roll the dough into a 6 inch log and cut into 6 1-inch segments. Flour a rolling pin and roll out the dough until it's as thick or thin as you like it. I prefer it extra thin, due to the crunch factor.
  3. Heat a skillet and coat the bottom with olive oil. I keep the heat at medium or a little above. If the heat is too high, the bread will start to burn before it's fully cooked in the center.
  4. Each side of the bread should take a little over a minute to cook. When the edges have hardened and the exposed doughy side starts to bubble, flip it. The bread should be bubbly, golden brown and it should definitely make your mouth water.
  5. I stack the flatbread on a plate and season each of them with additional sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper.
  6. Eat and enjoy! Try to share.

      First of all, thanks to Wanita, Caroline and Byba for your comments.

      Firstly, I have not tried to do a gluten free type of flat bread, however if you use chickpea flour you would have a glutin free flarbread. All that may be needed is a bit of fiddling around with water "flour" mixture and the cooking times. It does and will work out, as I do know some friends that use it.

      Thanks Caroline I do try.

      Byba, I appreaciate your comment and will have a look at those links.

      The thing about flat breads are the various ways you can add spices, herbs, infused oils to your basic mixture.

      Often very often my lunch consists of a form of flat bread of one form or the other.

      Great hub, I have been looking at various recipes for yeast free types of flatbreads.

      The basic ingredients all seem to be the same, only variations that have creeped in is the proportions, which control the number of servings.

      Many years ago I hand pubIshed a "Naturopathic Cook Book", in there I had the recipe for Chinese Pancakes, which are served with, stirfried vegetables or plain pickled vegies, this depended on regional differences.

      Did you steal this recipe from or did they steal it from you? : ) Looks like they posted the original recipe since they also include nutrition information.

      Making them into Rosemary and Italian herb potassium was a good move. ^_^

      Just made this for dinner! Very good and very easy; my husband was so impressed by the simplicity of it and he loved the taste (I took your suggestion with the added S&P at the end, and I added dill). Thank you!
