Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Resting Time: 1 hour
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 25 minutes
Yield: 4 flatbreads


For the Dough:

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

For the Garlic Butter:

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • Salt, to taste


Prepare the Dough:

  1. Activate Yeast:
    • In a small bowl, combine warm water and sugar. Sprinkle the yeast over the water and let it sit for 5-10 minutes until it becomes frothy.
  2. Combine Dry Ingredients:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt. Make a well in the center.
  3. Mix Dough:
    • Pour the activated yeast mixture into the well. Add olive oil. Stir until the dough comes together.
  4. Knead Dough:
    • Transfer the dough to a floured surface and knead for about 5-7 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic. Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover it with a damp cloth, and let it rise for 1 hour or until it doubles in size.

Make the Garlic Butter:

  1. Prepare Garlic Butter:
    • In a small bowl, mix melted butter, minced garlic, chopped parsley, and a pinch of salt. Set aside.

Shape and Cook the Flatbreads:

  1. Preheat Oven or Stovetop:
    • Preheat the oven to 475°F (245°C) or preheat a griddle or skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Divide Dough:
    • Divide the risen dough into 4 equal portions. Roll each portion into a ball.
  3. Roll Out Flatbreads:
    • On a floured surface, roll each ball into a thin circle or oval shape.
  4. Cook Flatbreads:
    • If using an oven, place the rolled-out dough on a baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden and cooked through. If using a griddle or skillet, cook each flatbread for about 2-3 minutes on each side until lightly browned and cooked through.
  5. Brush with Garlic Butter:
    • Once the flatbreads are cooked, brush them with the prepared garlic butter while they are still warm.
  6. Serve:
    • Serve the garlic flatbreads warm as a delicious side or appetizer.
