This yogurt flatbread recipe has two ingredients and can be used for everything from flatbread pizzas to your favorite tacos.
It’s no secret around here that I love quick breads. I’ve used yeast in recipes, but I’m not well-practiced, so it can be a bit of a gamble as to whether it’ll turn out. So my go-to when baking breads is to use self-rising flour. I’ve done it before with my 3 Ingredient Beer Bread and my Pepperoni Rolls. This yogurt flatbread is no exception – it has just two ingredients and can be used for anything from flatbread pizzas to your favorite tacos.
Ingredients for Yogurt Flatbread
Self-rising flour: You can buy self-rising flour in the grocery store, but rather than keep another bag of flour around, I like to make my own. To make your own, simply mix 1 ½ c flour (all-purpose or whole wheat), 2 tsp. baking powder, ¼ tsp. salt and you’ve just saved yourself an extra trip to the grocery store.
Plain yogurt: You definitely don’t want to get flavored yogurt; make sure it is plain. This recipe uses regular yogurt, which is more fluid than Greek yogurt.
How to Make Flatbread with Yogurt and Flour
Simply mix the yogurt and self-rising flour using a paddle attachment on a stand mixer. If you don’t have a stand mixer, you can do this with a large spoon, and once it comes together, you can knead it by hand. Obviously, making it by hand will take longer. Once you’ve formed a dough ball, it may be a bit sticky. Lightly dust the dough with more flour and knead it a few times until it’s no longer sticky.
Divide the dough into 4-6 equal balls, depending on how you’re using the flatbread. I usually will divide it into four equal balls if I’m going to make personal flatbread pizzas. If I’m going more towards tacos, I’ll divide it into six equal balls. You’ll roll these balls out to their desired thickness or size.
Then you’ll heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and cook each tortilla one at a time in the dry skillet for about 1-2 minutes on each side. You’ll know when to flip the yogurt flatbreads when bubbles form all over the dough. If you’re using them for tacos, I like to serve immediately or keep them warm by wrapping them in aluminum foil until ready to serve.
If you’re making these for meal prep, then keep in mind it will only keep for about 2-3 days before they start to go stale. You can freeze the flatbreads, but freezing can alter the texture. If you want to try freezing, wrap the cooled flatbreads in aluminum foil and store them in a freezer bag for about one month in the freezer. Thaw overnight in the fridge and then use as usual when making flatbread pizza. If you’re using them for tacos, then I would heat them in a dry skillet for a few minutes on each side, just like you did when you initially made them.
How to Serve Yogurt Flatbreads
You can certainly make this to eat alongside food as a carb source like a dinner roll. Plus flatbread pizzas, tacos, wraps, etc. are all super tasty ways to enjoy them – the sky is the limit!
Yogurt Flatbread Recipe
- 1 ½ cup self-rising flour
- ¾ cup plain yogurt not Greek
- In a stand-mixer bowl, add the self-rising flour (or flour, baking soda, and salt). Add the yogurt and mix with a paddle attachment until dough comes together into a sticky ball.
- Lightly dust flour on a work surface and turn the dough out on the surface; knead the dough until the dough is smooth and no longer sticky, using more flour as needed to make dough smooth.
- Divide dough into 4-6 equal balls. Roll each ball out flat to desired thickness or size.
- Heat skillet over medium-high heat. Once the skillet is preheated, cook tortillas one at a time for 1-2 minutes or until lightly browned on each side. Tip: when the flatbread begins to get air bubbles, it’s a good time to flip.
