  • 1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour + extra for dusting
  • 1 2/3 cups spelt flour *
  • 2 teaspoons instant yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 3/4 cup water


  • In a mixing bowl add the dry ingredients first and give it a mix, pour in the oil and add the water little by little and knead by hand or use a stand mixer) the dough until smooth. Add more water if necessary - it should be a smooth, non-sticky dough.
  • Cover the bowl with a clean kitchen towel and let it rest in a warm place for about 1-2 hours. The dough should double in size.
  • Punch the dough down a bit, and cut it in 4 equal pieces.
  • Form the pieces into balls and roll them out on a floured surface.
  • Put one tortilla in a very hot (!) non-stick pan (a flat pan like a crepe-pan works best) and let it in there for a few seconds to a minute and then turn when the tortilla is getting bubbly on the surface. Repeat for the other tortillas.
  • Keep the tortillas covered in a clean kitchen towel until using them to prevent them from getting dry and hard.



* You can substitute the spelt flour with all-purpose wheat flour, to make them 100% wheat tortillas.
