Equipment

  • Frying pan
  • Rolling Pin
  • Mixing bowls

Ingredients
  

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup butter or margarine
  • cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt optional
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil for oiling the skillet

Instructions
 

  • Add milk and butter to a small saucepan. Heat over low-medium heat until the butter is melted. Remove the saucepan from the heat.
  • Next, add flour and salt to a medium-size bowl and mix well. A KitchenAid mixer is handy if you have one. Add the warmed milk and butter mixture, and mix well with the flour until the dough forms a smooth, round ball.
  • Divide dough in half. Then, cut each half in half. Divide each half into 4 balls. You will have 16 balls of dough. Cover with plastic wrap to keep the dough warm.
  • On a floured work surface, spread out extra flour, and roll out each ball of dough until it just starts to become translucent, about ⅛" thickness. If you are quite particular with the appearance of your flatbread, lay a 9" plate or bowl on the rolled out dough and use a butter knife to cut around it. This will give you a perfect circle. If you aren't particular about it, don't bother.
  • After the flatbread is rolled out, stack them in 2 stacks with no more than 8 flatbreads in each stack, with plastic wrap between each flatbread to prevent them from sticking together.
  • Preheat a skillet over medium heat and add 1 or 2 tablespoons of olive oil to grease the pan to prevent sticking. Cook each flatbread just until it starts to get golden brown spots, about 1-2 minutes. Flip the flatbread and cook for 1 minute on the other side.
  • Remove cooked flatbread to a plate and cover with a tea towel to keep warm. Repeat for remaining flatbreads.
  • Serve with your favorite toppings and enjoy!

Notes

Nutritional information is approximate and is meant as a guideline only.
Top Tips:
  • Keep the balls of dough covered, so they do not dry out. The flatbread dough is really pliable and easy to roll out when it is warm.
  • Don't cook the flatbread too long as it will dry and crack and won't bend easily. Instead, Cook until they have light golden brown spots.
Storage:
Fridge: Flatbread dough will keep in an airtight container or Ziploc bag in the fridge for up to 3 days. Cooked flatbread keeps best at room temperature for about 2 days. If you have leftovers, it is best to freeze it.
Freezer: Flatbread can also be frozen (once completely cooled) in a Ziploc bag for up to one month. To reheat, wrap them in a damp tea towel and microwave until warm. This moist towel helps keep the flatbread soft and pliable.
Variations:
  • To make it gluten-free, use gluten-free flour.
  • To make it vegan, use almond milk instead of dairy milk, and margarine or olive oil instead of butter.
