Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes
Servings 10 flatbreads


  • cups lukewarm water about 105˚F
  • teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ¾ cups plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • ½ tablespoon dried basil
  • ½ tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • ½ cup olive oil for brushing


  • In a large mixing bowl whisk together water, yeast, and sugar; set aside for 8 to 10 minutes, or until foamy.
  • Whisk in the yogurt, olive oil, salt, basil, oregano, and garlic powder.
  • Add flour and parsley, and stir everything together with a wooden spoon until dough comes together.
  • Generously sprinkle flour over your kitchen counter or work-area and turn dough onto the floured surface; turn to coat and then knead for 4 minutes. Sprinkle more flour if the dough is sticky while kneading.
  • Cut dough into 10 equal pieces and form each piece into a small ball. I use a kitchen scale to weigh each dough ball so to make sure they are all equal.
  • Lightly sprinkle each dough ball with flour; cover them with a kitchen towel and let stand for 15 minutes.
  • Preheat a frying pan over medium-low heat.
  • Take one of the dough balls and, using a rolling pin, roll it out to about a 7-inch circle.
  • Lightly brush the top of the rolled out dough with olive oil.
  • When the pan is hot, pick up the rolled out dough and place it in the pan, oiled side down, and cook for about 1 ½ minutes, or until the top surface is covered with bubbles.
  • While frying, brush the opposite side of the flatbread with olive oil.
  • Flip the flatbread and cook for 1 more minute, or until golden on the bottom.
  • Remove from pan and transfer to a plate; keep cooked flatbreads covered with a kitchen towel while working with the rest of the dough.
  • Repeat the process with the remaining balls of dough. Make sure to keep the other dough balls covered while working.
  • Serve warm or cold.
