This easy Flatbread recipe is a great base for wraps and even pizza.


I adore homemade bread. I like bread in general but there is something about homemade bread that is extra special. I’m the first to admit that making yeast bread can be a bit intimidating.  Getting the temperature of the liquid correct and kneading just the right amount is something that comes with practice.

However this flatbread is super simple and doesn’t even need an oven. You just cook the rolled out discs in a skillet for a couple of minutes per side.


There are so many ways to use the finished recipe.  You could use them instead of a flour tortilla in my roast beef wraps, or instead of my skillet soft wrap bread in chicken fajita melts. My favorite way to use them is as a pizza crust. I have some delicious individual flatbread pizza recipes coming soon.
