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

The ingredients

You will need: 

  • all-purpose flour
  • instant yeast
  • salt
  • olive oil
  • water
  • 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!

The basic steps

flour, yeast, and salt in bowl
Step 1: Combine the flour, instant yeast, and salt in a mixing bowl.

Step 2: Add the olive oil and water. Let it knead by a kitchen machine with a dough hook (or use a spoon to stir and then your hands to knead the dough) until it’s a smooth dough.

Step 4: Divide the dough into 5 equal pieces. On a lightly floured surface (I am using parchment paper), roll out each piece.

Step 5: Add the flatbread into a really hot grill pan or grill rack. Let it cook for 2-3 minutes until bubbly, then flip and let it cook on the other side for about 2 minutes as well. It should have nice grill marks.

Ingredients
 
 

  • 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

Instructions
 

  • 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!
