This easy and delicious flatbread recipe is no-fail! Made with 6 ingredients that are pantry staples! A great substitute for classic bread loaves!
Mmmmm… There’s nothing quite like a warm slice of bread fresh from the oven.

Bread is my nemesis. I can never seem to get it to bake quite right. So, I had my doubts about this easy bread.
Simple is really the best word to describe how easy this is. Mix the ingredients and go. It is no-fail. If I can make it, anyone can!
What goes good with flatbread?
Flatbread can be used in substitute with any bread. We use it to make mini pizzas, PB & J, stuffed with tuna salad, or filled with our Italian favorites. The possibilities are endless. Here are a few of our faves:
How to make homemade flatbread:
You start by tossing all of the ingredients straight into your mixing bowl.
Every single one of them.
Give it a good stir with your paddle attachment and then switch over to the dough hook. Let it do its thing for about five minutes or until your dough gets that play dough like consistency.
After resting for a good hour it is time to make the magic happen. I divided the dough into eight equal pieces…
Then rolled them out into 8 inch circles.
It is ok if they are not perfect.
I figure it gives them more character.
Place them onto two lined baking sheets and set the oven to a ridiculously high temp.
Seriously. Five hundred degrees is no joke.
You will want to keep a close eye on these as they bake to avoid burning.
It is like magic watching these bake. I did not believe that they were going to puff up, but sure enough they did.
Every single one of them puffed to a beautiful air pocket of goodness.
It blows my mind how simple the entire process was! If you are a fan of pita or flatbread… Give this recipe a try. You won’t be disappointed.

- 3 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons instant yeast
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1 cup warm water
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- Combine all of your ingredients into the bowl of an electric mixer. Stir until combined with the paddle attachment.
- Switch to a dough hook and knead for five minutes. If kneading by hand increase that time to ten minutes. Place in a lightly sprayed bowl and cover with a dry clean towel. Let rest for one hour.
- Divide your dough into 8 equal pieces. Roll each piece into an eight inch circle. Place onto a lined cookie sheet and allow to rest 15 minutes.
- While the dough is resting preheat your oven to 500 degrees. Cook on the bottom level of the oven for 5 minutes. Your bread should have puffed up slightly. If not add an additional minute or two. Transfer to the top rack and cook 2 more minutes.
