Flatbread Recipe

I have had a request from Lee for the flatbread recipe I use.  It's so simple (must be if I can make them!) that I make them on a regular basis.... pictured left in case you were wondering ;)

250g (8oz) self raising flour
pinch salt (optional)
150ml (1/4 pint) lukewarm water (I use previously boiled water from kettle)

Mix with a knife until it starts to come together then use your hand.  Knead for a short time sprinkling with flour if it feels a bit sticky. When you get fed up with kneading stop :)   pat the dough into a sausage shape and cut into 6 or 8 pieces (I find 6 are better for us). Heat up a sturdy frying pan, pat each bit of dough into shape with your hand, stretching it a bit as you go, and dry fry (no oil needed) for a minute or so on each side or until lightly brown and a bit fluffy.  You can eat them warm from the pan or cool and freeze, when they will keep for a couple of weeks.  There's no preservative in them so they won't store well in a tin, freezing is better.

Using supermarket value flour these cost around 10p a batch and make lovely mini pizza bases.

Now I must away to make some veg soup for lunch :)

Thanks everso for popping in x


  1. Thanks for this I will be making these, and making mini pizza's for a lunchtime snack, will make a nice change from sandwiches x

  2. Sounds good! Anything that easy is good......

  3. Thank you so much for this recipe, my husband loves mini pizza, but they are so expensive in the shops, these will make brilliant bases for home made ones.
    I can't believe you posted this recipe so soon after my request, so again thanks.

    1. It's a pleasure to share the recipe, Lee, they are so cheap and filling :-)

  4. I make them to scoop up curry, chili, stew, anything wet really, quicker than rice or pasta and soooo tasty with a sprinkle of dried herbs in the mix.

    1. Ooooh, must try herbs in mine too, thanks Pam :)
