You can make 6 fairly large flatbreads from this amount, or you can make them as small as you want.
  • 1 1/2tsp Yeast
  • 2 tsp Sugar
  • 3/4 cup Warm water
  • 2cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1tsp Table Saltor 1 1/2 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1/4tsp Baking Powder
  • 3Tbsp Plain Yogurtregular, or Greek
  • 2Tbsp Butter, melted and cooledand more for brushing
  1. In a small bowl, combine water, sugar and yeast, stirring to dissolve. Set aside until foamy, about 5 minutes.
  2. If mixing by hand, stir all dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Add wet ingredients, stirring with a spoon until dough forms a soft, sticky ball. Gather dough, lightly kneading by hand just a few times to bring it together.
  3. If using a food processor, place all ingredients except yeast mixture into the work bowl, and pulse to combine. With the machine running, add yeast mixture through the feed tube. Stop just when dough forms a ball, which is almost immediate. Dough will be sticky.
  4. Place dough in a greased bowl. Cover and allow to rise until doubled in size, about 30 minutes if using fast-rising yeast.
  5. Turn risen dough out onto a floured countertop. Gently pat to form a circle. Divide dough into as many equal portions as desired (6 or 8 have been demonstrated) Roll each portion into a round ball. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest for 5 to 10 minutes.
  6. Heat a heavy skillet over medium high heat until very hot. DO NOT ADD OIL. Have a lid or pizza pan nearby.
  7. Roll each dough ball into a circle about 1/4 inch thick.
  8. Gently place dough circle onto hot skillet. Be ready to adjust heat down if required. When dough is puffed and golden on the bottom (approximately 1 minute), flip. Cover the pan and cook on the second side until well browned and cooked through, 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  9. Remove from heat and brush with butter. If serving immediately, wrap in a kitchen towel to keep warm. If planning to store, allow to cool completely on a wire rack, then bag airtight and freeze. Do not refrigerate — consume within a couple of days, or freeze.
