This vegan Grilled Flatbread is the perfect side dish for roasted veggies, summer salads, or seitan steak! You can bake it on a grill rack or on a grill pan for the nice, iconic grill marks.
This soft, fluffy, thick, grilled flatbread should be an integral part of every cookout/bbq/grilling session. It’s super easy to make, crazy delicious, versatile, and a crowd-pleaser.
I love this flatbread because:
- the dough is super basic: flour, yeast, salt, water, oil.
- you can go wild with the toppings: you don’t have to worry about burnt herbs or spices when you add them after grilling the bread.
- it goes so well with salads, roasted veggies, all kinds of dips and sauces, couscous, anything tofu or seitan (steak, sausages, whatever you like to put on a grill!).
How to make Grilled Flatbread
You will need:
- all-purpose flour
- instant yeast
- olive oil
- fresh parsley
The dough for the flatbread only needs flour, yeast, salt, oil, and water. After grilling the flatbread we’re brushing it with olive oil, and sprinkling it with salt and fresh parsley – but of course, you can add your own spin and add rosemary, basil, thyme, sesame seeds, whatever your heart desires!

- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/3 teaspoon salt + more to sprinkle on top
- 1 teaspoon instant yeast
- 1 teaspoon olive oil + more for brushing the top
- 2/3 cup lukewarm water
- 2 tablespoons fresh parsley for sprinkling on top
- In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt, and instant yeast. Then add the olive oil and water. Stir to combine, then knead with your hands (or use a kitchen machine with a dough hook) until it's a smooth dough. If the dough is too sticky, add more flour; if it's too crumbly, add more water.
- Cover the bowl with a clean kitchen towel and let it sit in a warm place until the dough doubles in size (for about 2 hours).
- Divide the dough into 5 equal pieces. Roll out each piece on a lightly floured parchment paper, like you would with small pizzas or naan.
- Bring a grill pan to high heat (or use a griller with a rack) and add the flatbread. Let it cook for 2-3 minutes until the top side is bubbly, then flip and let it cook another 2 minutes. By then, it should have nice grill marks.
- Remove the flatbread from the pan/griller, brush it with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and fresh parsley and enjoy!
