No-Hassle Flatbread for Pizza (100% Whole Wheat)
This incredibly easy, hassle free flatbread dough is wholesome and healthy and can be topped with any toppings, sauces and cheeses of your choice!
Combine flour in a bowl with salt, baking powder, and spices.
Add the yogurt and mix thoroughly until the dough comes together. Let your dough rest for a few minutes.
On a floured surface, set and divide the dough into 4 portions. Roll each portion into an oval/circular shape about ¼" thick. (the dough will be sticky so flour your surface as needed).
If needed: Add just enough oil to lightly coat the bottom of a pre-heated pan or grill that is large enough to accommodate your rolled out dough. (Note that the pan should be hot but not smoking). Set the rolled out dough into the pan and using a pastry brush, lightly oil the top.
Once bubbles appear on the top, give your flatbread 30 seconds before flipping it. Cook until the underside has nicely browned spots and the surface is slightly crisp (but not burned).
Remove from heat to a cooling rack or plate lined with paper towels or a clean kitchen linen. Top with any toppings of your choice (sauce, toppings, cheese, etc.) and place under the broiler for a couple minutes to warm toppings and melt any cheese used. (See note*) Serve immediately. You can also make your flat breads in advance and store them (without any toppings) by cooling them completely before wrapping them in paper towels and placing them in the fridge in sealed Ziploc bags for up to a week or freeze them for up to three months.
- A great trick before broiling your flatbread and toppings is to set your cast iron skillet into the oven on the top rack and turn the broiler on. Once the pan is hot, place your precooked and topped flatbread into the pan and set it back under the broiler for a couple minutes. The preheated pan helps the bottom to crisp up while the toppings get heated and the cheese is able to melt.
- Since we're just broiling the toppings to warm them up and melt the cheese, be sure to use precooked meats or toppings that don't need to be thoroughly cooked.
