Quick & Easy Flatbread

Homemade flatbread smells and tastes amazing. Mine is more like pita bread or naan and you can use it to make your own gyros, pizza, focaccia, or dip it into hummus. No stand mixer? Mix by hand and knead about 50 turns. And always aerate your flour before measuring.- Jenny Jones

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Makes: Four 6-inch flatbreads

    I just love Jenny’s recipes. Sure wish she would make a comeback. Her recipes are straight forward simple and always delicious and fool proof! Now for this one, I’ll never go back buying store bought. A smidge tough but not sure why if any suggestions Id appreciate. Absolutely delicious

      I have been using this recipe for tortilla-making since I posted here in 2021. I now have just used it today for making four English muffins cooked in a skillet. I did six minutes a side in my induction burner at 354 degrees. This temperature needs to be tinkered with a bit. Since I have added dried and fresh herbs; fresh and dried garlic; and seeds this recipe never fails me! Now you can make four muffins on the stove top, why do anything else when you want flat breads or English muffins or even sliders. Since I am very old man, I like to make my “daily bread” every morning. Please do not expect big holes in the round muffins. I even began to figure out that process yet. Thanks Jenny for this recipe once again.

        Made this a few nights ago – YUMMY!! The next time I did add Italian herbs, garlic powder, and a pinch of sugar to the dough. Right out of the pan, I brushed on garlic vegan butter and sprinkled it with chopped cilantro. Can’t wait to keep experimenting with flavors. Thank you once again, you are my “go to” .

        We’re eating this now, hot right out of the pan. It was soooo good and Jenny’s video gave great tips. I wanted flatbread that had yeast but didn’t take 2 hours, like some recipes. This is the best of both worlds–the nice yeasty taste in a short amount of time. I think we’re going to make this a lot 🙂

        I have been making these great flatbread for at least six months. My results are always consistent from the first batch. They keep well in the refrigerator is I double my efforts.

        When Jenny speaks, we all should listen!

        Hey Jenny,
        Sorry; I haven’t seen your show and only recently found out that you had one. However, I’ve been trying your recipes since March 2020 and love every recipe that I’ve tried. I couldn’t make bread before and now I do pizza dough, facaccia, cinnamon bread braid, etc. Thank you for all the easy to use recipes!

        I love the flatbreads and sometimes add about a teaspoon or so of King Arthur Flour Pizza Seasoning to the dough…makes them taste great!

          Hi Jenny!

          I love this recipe and wondered if I wanted to double it do I also need to use 2 packets of yeast? I have seen some bread recipes use at least twice as much flour with just 1 packet of yeast. I appreciate your opinion. Thank you so much for all your wonderful recipes and fun videos. I love them. 🥰. God bless you.

            Lea,
            I doubled the recipe, but kept the yeast at 1 teaspoon. It came out really delicous. Yes, Jenny has a soothing way of explaining the recipe to both the flat bread pita and the regular bread recipe. I have made her recipes for the past 3 years.
            God bless!

            Sooo…..just wondered if a stainless frypan would work for your flatbreads
            and tortillas. Just extra oil to keep them from sticking, perhaps ??

            Thanks, Jenny. Cheers from Canada

I will never forget your hilarious story about washing your husband’s treasured autographed baseball ! I have re-told that story to every friend and
            family member and stranger who would listen

            Down to business ! Would my gorgeous new stainless steel frypan work your flatbreads and tortillas ? Electric stove. This was a recent gift and I am not famuliarvwith it yei

            I love this recipe. It really is easy to make. I do not have a gas stove and there for I do not have a cast iron pan, but don’t let this stop you!!

            I use a non stick pan on a glass top stove on high heat.

            Although delicious as is, I add 2 teaspoons of Nigella Sativa seeds (can be found at an Indian grocery store, also known as black cumin seeds). This gives a gentle flavour of black pepper, oregano and onion.

            Another method, I have used the BBQ. Delicious, but tends to be more crispy.

              I made these tonight for our homemade donairs! Easy peasy. I activated the yeast in the warm water with a tsp of sugar for a few minutes before tossing it all into my stand mixer. Rolled out very thin and pan fried in my cast iron pan! Couldn’t be better, thank you for this recipe!

              Just made my second batch this morning. I roll mine really flat before cooking them in the cast iron skillet. Husband loves them and we enjoy them with hummus. Makes a small batch which is perfect for the two of us.

              I was going over videos on you tube looking for an easy bread to make during this shelter-at-home order. I stumbled upon a nice, funny lady showing me how to aerate flour, alongside youtube suggested her flatbread, which I made and it was fantastic! I doubled the recipe and made extra. They were even better the next morning. I would have taken a pic but they all got eaten up! 🙂

              I decided to learn more about this clever and humorous lady and was amazed to see it was Jenny Jones from my earlier years! I admire that this collection is not intended for profit, just for the love of cooking and sharing knowledge. It feels good to see what Jenny is doing with her time and energy, this is an example of how we make the world a better place. Thank so much, Jenny!

                  I’ve made this a few times and it always turns out well.

                  It’s also good for stuffed flatbread. I mixed up some mashed potato, onion, cheese, salt and pepper, and made balls of 3-4 tablespoons (ish). Roll out the dough to 4-5in, place the potato mix in the middle, seal it up like a dumpling, then roll it out to the normal size and cook as usual.

                      This is so good and so easy! I’ve done a lot of cooking and baking for a lot of years, but only recently decided to try my hand at making tortillas, and now flatbreads. Both are crazy easy to make and both are delicious!

                      Re: this recipe specifically . . . I made some mushroom barley soup the other day for some dinner guests, and thought I’d make a couple of French baguettes. Unfortunately, I didn’t allow enough time, so I quickly searched “Yummly” for something super quick to throw together . . .“Quick flatbread” (fingers crossed), and Bingo!! It’s wonderful!

                      Hello Jenny,
                      I had to redo this flatbread recipe because I was wondering what went wrong the first time I have done it and finally thought maybe it was the yeast or the temperature of the water. Made a nice batch and it came out really good and even better then what we buy. The whole family enjoyed. I left out the garlic powder in one batch and I have added a little garlic powder in another batch. Both came out fantastic. I had made a pizza with the flatbread and it really beats the naan bread we buy at the store. Thank you Jenny for simple and enjoyable recipes. I encourage for any recipe people try and it does not work,to try it again, because its worth it.

                      Hello Jenny,
                      I have tried your no-knead bread and it is wonderful and I cannot stop making a two loaf per month. I decided why not try the flatbread and I did today. I have decided to put garlic powder about 1\4 teaspoon, it was too much to my liking. I will need to try a little less or none at all. I was a little disappointed because I have expected it would taste the same as the one in the store or better. Maybe I have done something incorrectly. I have two more which I will do a pizza tonight and let you know if it is better since I will put it in the oven. I may think that I have not cooked enough in the pan. I would like to know which olive oil you have used ? Everyone wrote they loved this recipe so maybe I may have done something incorrectly. I will sure try again, not giving up. lol

                      I don’t have a mixer like yours, just a hand held. Will it work just as well?

                      Jenny, you mentioned in the video that you especially like these made with whole wheat flour. When subbing w/w flour for white flour do I increase the amount of yeast? Love your recipes! Thank you!

                        I do not increase the yeast for whole wheat flatbread.

                        My mom and gma showed me how to make ‘fried bread’ when I was very young. I made it for my children all the time. They are all grown, 36 yrs old to 30, my youngest, and they still request mom’s fried bread all the time. My mom and gma also made fried corn bread like the fried bread and we all loved it. My kids even loved eating the fried bread with sausage gravy on it instead of the homemade bisquits for breakfast. They still eat my fried bread with butter and jam on it. Fried bread is one of the greatest recipes.

                          I would like to have your recipes for your fried bread and the fried cornbread. My mom made fried bread I loved it. She would make when she made chili. I grew up with it but sadly to say my mom passed away before I could get her recipe it was one of those that was in her head. I have tried to make it but it wants to break up. I knew what went in but had to guess how much. Hers was flour, Crisco in the can, salt ,milk. I hope yours might be the same or close to it. If not I would like to try yours. Thanks for your time.

                          If the bread is flat, why you add the yeast?

                            The yeast makes it lighter and also adds flavor. If you didn’t add it you would just have a fried paste.

                            This flat bread was just divine. Used my cast iron crepe pan and the recipe worked perfectly. Used grape seed oil on my crepe pan because it has a very high smoking threshold

                            These were so yummy,soft,quick and easy. I doubled the recipe and added a tablespoon of sugar just to have softer flavor instead of a plain salt bread. It turned out great! My dough was soft and fluffy and was easy to roll out. We used some for little pizza (we love pizza) and the rest I freeze in a Ziploc bag for when we need to make a quick pizza or sandwich. Just put your toppings over your frozen bread,pop them in the oven and they come out so crispy and tasting fresh. Great recipe (its my favor after trying at least 15 different recipes) Thanks for sharing!!

                            Should they be cooked in the pan on medium high, that was too hot for a dry food. I did and it smoked up my whole house because the pan was dry and too hot. It said not to oil it.

                              It’s for a cast iron pan, which can tolerate the high heat.

                                  I use a large griddle for all my flatbread recipes because we eat it with soup pretty often and I can cook 3-4 at a time. I usually set it to 375 degrees F when cooking flatbread but the time per side will differ depending on the recipe and it’s ingredients. Hope that helps!

                                  She’s using a gas stove which is generally a bit cooler than an electric stove in my experience. If you have an electric I wouldn’t go above medium for this, otherwise there will be burning and sticking and smoking.

                                  So I have making your easy pan pizza for many years. Decided to give this a try to go with the salad I was making for dinner. It was so easy. The family loved it . My husband is trying to come up with all the ways to make it into a meal. We’re thinking tacos. Thank you so much!

                                  Thank you so much for this recipe! This will be my favourite go-to bread when I don’t have hours to let regular bread rise, cook and cool. I doubled the recipe for our family of 6 (almost 7), and used the whole-wheat version. I had to use all my will power not to eat more than one, as I have to save enough for our lunch tomorrow. I smeared some butter on a freshly cooked one and devoured it! I know my family will definitely love it. May God bless you, Jenny!

                                  I use this recipe all the time. Thanks, Jenny! I always double it and keep the extras in a ziplock bag in the fridge for quick use. I mix a container of pizza sauce and keep in fridge. Always cook extra sausage patties so as to have the leftover ones to crumble over the pizza along with pepperoni, onion, black olives, peppers and of course, lots of cheese. So easy to quickly put a pizza together and cook in the convection oven. Good, homemade pizza in a flash. I love this recipe, my pizzas love this recipe, my waistline? Eh, that’s another story. lol Thanks again, Jenny, for this wonderful, easy to make recipe.

                                  I just made this with “organic unbleached flour” (a friend of my wife has those kinds of issues) and it came out wonderful. To the point that I made a batch. Then a double batch. And am currently waiting for the triple batch to proof 🙂

                                  I was just about to run out to the store for flatbreads then I remembered watching your video, your recipes have never failed me before so I made them for the first time, you are right! I will never buy flat bread or tortillas again! I made the dough in my food processor, rolled half much thinner to experiment, perfect tortillas! Dough was so easy and fun to work with, thank you for making my life easier although you’re not so good for the economy, if I had gone to the store I would have returned with at least 10 other groceries items (mostly junk.) THANKS AGAIN.

                                  Great bread with New Mexico Style Posole Soup. Turned out better then any of the others I have tried. Simple quick and very tasty. Even better when cooked on the charcoal grill.

                                  Just to let you know…the quick loaf that I am baking today in my dutch oven is rising..:) and I just finished a batch of flatbread..which we are enjoying with hummus. I did have to make an adjustment to the amount of flour. 1/3 cup more to get it to bind together. It was otherwise delicious and one I will keep in my arsenal of go to recipes..Thank you Jenny!

                                  Am going to try this recipe approach with gluten-free 1for1 flour. I will let you know how it works out. Have all but given up flour – except what comes over from Israel as I believe that grain has not been messed with genetically. Kosher for Passover means, to me, that the grain is ancient and has had no alterations – same as G-d gave us from the beginning.

                                      I have only used cast iron so please look at other recipes to see if other pans can be used.

                                      I don’t have a cast iron skillet. I make these all the time and just use a frying pan.

                                        I have used a griddle, it’s larger and you can cook more than one at a time.

                                        We moved to Maine and I can’t seem to find any decent pita bread where I live. But now I can make my own. I just made this recipe and it was so easy, quick, and they tasted so fresh and good. So much better than the packaged bread. I made fresh hummus and the two went together perfectly. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I can’t wait to make it again!

                                          Thank you for catching my mistake. I should have just left it at half & half and will adjust the recipe. So it should be 1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp. of each flour.

                                          This is my new go to recipe! Thank you so much. I have a question. I’d like to cook this for a crowd, so just simply multiplying the ingredients. But it doesn’t seem prudent to multiply the yeast. Do you have any recommendations? I’m thinking about making 60 flatbreads.

                                            I wish I could help but I have only made four at a time. You may have to look at other recipes to help with the amount of yeast.

                                            Why not just make ahead and freeze? I just made four and froze two, double wrapped. Just love them.

                                            Hi Jenny,
                                            I love your cooking! Thank you so much for your great videos.
                                            I am allergic to yeast. Would your bread recipes work with sour dough?
                                            Kind regards,
                                            Janaki

                                              I’m sorry I have no experience with sourdough.

                                              Hello Jenny, I made this recipe this morning to try it out because I am looking for something else to use rather the buying a loaf of bread for my lunches. I let the dough sit for 10-15 min and it didn’t really rise. I used the correct temp of water. I rolled them out to six inch sized and they ended up around 4 inches by the time I got to them to put on my grittle. They cam out very good. But I’m not sure if they are suppose to be really dense or more fluffy. Not quite like a thick fluffy pancake but not dense. When I go to bent it as if into a taco shape it breaks. I did mix by hand for a min or two before I let it sit.

                                                A couple of suggestions: It might be a good idea to watch the video again. If you have an electric mixer, it’s better to use it. The dough is not supposed to rise, only rest for 10 minutes. If the flatbreads are not soft enough, it could be from the pan not being hot enough or not rolling them big enough. A cast iron pan will give the best result. If you try again, be sure to follow the recipe exactly with no changes at all. I make these all the time and they are always soft, puffy, and flexible. Good luck!

                                                I have used this recipe several times because my grocery store runs out Naan almost as soon as they get it in. It goes perfect with my Tikka Masala and Madras curry! I ended up doubling the recipe and adding minced garlic and fresh cilantro and it turned out perfect and tasty. This is a must-have recipe!! I also did it all by hand because I don’t have any mixers.
