Grilled Flatbread

Grilled flatbread made from pizza dough is a great no oven way to get fresh bread in the summer. Serve with Tandoori Style chicken or dip in olive oil for a delicious treat.

grilled flatbread

I was looking for a slightly different bread to serve when I cook on the grill. I had watched an episode of Paula’s Home Cooking one day recently and she had prepared grilled pizza which got me thinking of making flatbread.

I looked online at a few different places and the recipes seemed a bit fussy for me. I had given up until I remembered my favorite pizza dough. I made a couple of tweaks and it turned out delicious. My nephew who does not like bread had no problem chowing down on it.

Don’t let the long total time put you off the recipe because most of the time is hands off . You can run errands, catch up on your favorite TV show, or play with your kids while the dough rises.

  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 4 1/2 Cups of all purpose flour
  • 1/2 Tablespoon salt
  • 1/2 Tablespoon garlic salt
  • 1-2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 Tablespoon yeast


  1. In a large bowl stir yeast and honey in the warm water and let sit for a few minutes until foamy.
  2. Add the flour, oil, salt, garlic salt, and onion powder and mix well. Knead by hand for 10 minutes or with mixer dough hook for 5 minutes.
  3. Transfer to a greased bowl, cover with a clean towel or plastic wrap and let rise until doubled in size.
  4. Preheat your grill to high. I have a charcoal grill and cooked over really hot coals.
  5. Divide dough into 8 to 10 portions and stretch out on an oiled baking sheet. I would use basic vegetable oil for this step.
  6. Stretch out to personal pizza size taking care not to make too many tears.
  7. Place on grill and cook covered; checking after 2 minutes.
  8. When the edges are set and the top starts to dry out carefully flip and cook for another two minutes or until browned and no longer doughy.
  9. You will probably have to experiment with different thicknesses , shapes and sizes depending on your grill.
