Mmmmm… There’s nothing quite like a warm slice of bread fresh from the oven.

Or in this case, a nice flatbread (pita if you prefer).

I have been on a big mini pizza kick lately with my chicken Alfredo and BBQ chicken pizzas. Both of which use flatbread as the crust. Which means we have been burning through the stuff like hotcakes.

I finally caved and decided I should probably attempt to make a batch on my own.

This recipe is easy, no-fail, and delicious!

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.

Can the flour be bread flour, white flour or whole wheat flour? Also, would it be the same measurement for each type of flour?
