These five ingredient flatbread are for people that:
- Love home baked bread but do not have time for home baked bread.

- Need some soft, fluffy carbs for scooping up their soup / sauce / cheesy main dish.
Guys. I repeat. Soft. Fluffy. Carbs.
When David and I were suddenly doing a lot more pantry meals (#thanks covid), we found ourselves eating a lot of soups, pastas, and mediterranean dishes. (Tieghan Gerard’s chicken schwarma is da bomb.) These flatbread were an easy side dish to make the meal a little #extra without having to try too hard.
They also made each lunches when we would just throw a little leftover tzatziki sauce on it, topped off with cucumbers, tomatoes, and kalamata olives.
What is the difference between flatbread and naan?
These flatbread rely on just a little bit of baking powder for a very slight lift. Naan is traditionally a yeast raised dough that has some kind of added fat–yogurt, whole milk, and/or eggs.
What do you eat with flatbread?
So many possibilities!
- Dunking in soups, like New Mexican Posole or Lemon Artichoke Orzo Soup.
- Mopping up pasta sauce, like Garlic Shrimp Alfredo sauce or Turkey Marinara.
- With Mediterranean dishes, as vehicles for Gyros or just dipping in tzatziki sauce.
- With Middle Eastern dishes, such as Chicken Tikka Masala or Cauliflower Curry.
- Flatbread pizza!
How long do homemade flatbread last?
Store in an airtight plastic bag for up to 2-3 days. If you do choose to butter the flatbread, I recommend only buttering the flatbread you are going to eat that night. That way the flatbread don’t get soggy and will keep a little longer.
