Yield: 2 flatbreads


  • 1 tsp dry active yeast
  • 1 tsp sugar granulated
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups flour all-purpose
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3/4 cup warm water 100-110 degrees F


  • Combine yeast, sugar and warm water in a large mixing bowl. Let it sit for 5 minutes to active the yeast.
  • Add flour, olive oil, and salt to the mixing bowl. Mix with a fork or wooden spoon until it has started to come together. Turn onto a floured flat surface and knead the dough for a couple of minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.
  • Place the dough back into the mixing bowl and cover with a clean kitchen towel. Let the dough rise for 45 min - 1 hour.
  • Cut the dough in half and roll out the dough. You should have 2 flatbreads to work with. The dough should be rolled quite thin for flatbread.
  • At this point you can add any toppings to the flatbread. It is recommended that you brush the flatbread with a bit of olive oil before adding your pizza sauce.

  • Bake the flatbread at 450 degrees F for 7-12 minutes. The flatbread edges will be light-golden brown, and the cheese will start browning when it's ready to come out of the oven.
