As I mention in the recipe, the flatbreads, if cooked perfectly, will puff up, but don’t worry, if that doesn’t happen the first time you make them. I had to do three tries for them to finally puff while cooking. Just keep trying 🙂

This is what it will look like, when you really get the hang of it.

Don’t use olive oil or any other fat in the pan, as it will burn.

You will see, the dough is perfect to cook the flatbread on high heat in the pan without oil.

Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 5 mins
Course Side Dish
Cuisine Mediterranean, Middle eastern
Servings 8 flatbreads


  • A rolling pin or something similar
  • A small frying pan


  • 250 g Wholewheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp fine salt
  • 3 tbsp olive oil extra virgin
  • 110 ml water tepid


  • Mix the flour with baking powder, salt and olive oil by hand or with a dough mixer. Add the water and kneed the dough for about 5 min until completely smooth.
  • Preheat the pan on high heat. Divide the dough in 8 equal size balls and take just a bit of the flour to help you roll out the dough. Don't use much flour because it will get burnt, the trick is to use just a bit on the rolling pin.
  • Cook the flatbread in the pan until one side is fully cooked, if the temperature is correct, it should start puffing up, but don't worry if it doesn't. I had to try this recipe three times before mine started puffing up.
    Turn to cook on the other side.
