Fancy some Flatbread…

“It’s the easiest bread I have ever made –

there’s no yeast and no proving time –

have a go and you’ll see what I mean.”

~ Jamie Oliver

I love warm flatbreads,

and since I started making my own,

I’ve never gone back to shop-bought!


Basic dough ingredients, then add your choice of topping!

Sift flour, sugar and salt in one bowl

and the oil and milk in a jug.


  • 250g plain flour
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • Β½ tsp salt
  • Β½ tsp baking powder
  • 130ml milk
  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil, plus extra for greasing


  • Olive oil
  • Garlic, minced
  • Fresh coriander leaves  (or thyme, oregano, rosemary)
  • Freshly ground sea salt & pepper


Make a well and add the liquid into the flour mix.

Knead, place in an oiled bowl and cover with a clean damp tea-towel.


  1. Sift the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder into a bowl.
  2. Mix together the milk and oil in a measuring jug.
  3. Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture and pour in the liquid mixture.
  4. Mix together the dough by working from the centre and incorporating the flour from to make a smooth, soft dough.
  5. Knead well for 8-10 minutes.
  6. Place the dough into an oiled bowl, cover with a damp tea-towel and leave in a warm place for 10-15 minutes.
  7. Form the dough into five balls, then cover in cling film and keep in the fridge, until ready to grill.
  8. Preheat the grill to medium and place a heavy baking sheet on the upper shelf of the grill to heat.
  9. Roll the dough balls out quite thinly, sprinkle over your  topping and press into the surface of the dough.
  10. Place onto the hot baking sheet and grill for just 1-2 minutes, or until puffy and lightly browned.

Roll out thinly, add your topping

and place on the hot baking tray to grill.


Flatbreads are great to eat with a fresh salad,

and perfect with my Saturday Night Curry

  2. They look and sound wonderful, Frances, with either curry or salad. Do you know, I’ve never tried flatbread (never made nor eaten them). I’ve written about them many times in my books! They were a major part of meals in Viking times. Now I really ought to make some.
