  • 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!
