Ingredients

  • 2 + 1/3 cups (230 grams / 8.1 oz) bread flour
  • 2 tablespoons (80 grams / 2.8 oz) Greek yogurt strained + full fat
  • 2/3 cup (90 grams /3.1 oz) milk lukewarm
  • 3 tablespoons (30 grams 1 oz) olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon (5 grams / 0.17 oz) salt
  • 1 teaspoon (5 grams / 0.17 oz) baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon (5 grams / 0.17 oz) baking powder

Instructions

  • In a mixing bowl whisk together all of the ingredients except of flour.
  • Start incorporating the flour into the mixture while mixing the dough with your hands.
  • Depending on the strength of the flour you're using you may need to add a bit less or a bit more. Knead the dough for a minute or two until it feels very soft but without leaving fragments on your hands.
  • Shape dough into a ball, cover with a tea towel and rest at room temperature for 2 hours.
  • With a knife or dough cutter, divide the dough into 6 pieces.
  • Shape each piece into a ball.
  • Lightly flour your working surface, take the first dough ball and roll on all sides (flip it once) until you have a 19 cm / 7.4 inch round flatbread.
  • Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat. Dip some paper towel into a bit of oil (I prefer olive oil) and lightly grease the bottom of the pan.
  • Add the first flatbread and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side (don't let the pan get smoky hot remove from heat to cool if so). Flip the flatbread using a flat spatula.
  • You may add flatbreads on top of each other creating a pile until you're finished making them. This way they won't air dry and stay more "elastic" if you're planning to use them as wraps.
