This easy-to-make Greek Yogurt Flatbread uses only 5 simple ingredients. So simple to mix up, no rising needed! The results are soft and puffed up flatbread that is begging to be dipped in some hummus or tzatziki.
The serving ideas for greek yogurt flatbread are endless! I love serving it with a dip like homemade hummus or homemade tzatziki. You can also use leftover flatbread to make flatbread pizza! Just top a piece of flatbread with some marinara, toppings, and cheese then bake at 350 degrees F until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
Or a final classic option is to use the flatbread like you would pita bread and make Greek Gyros. Or you can serve it alongside Indian-inspired recipes like you would naan - such as this recipe for Instant Pot Curry Lentils or Slow Cooker Butter Chicken.
⭐Why I Love It:
- 5 Simple Ingredients - Just yogurt, salt, flour, baking powder, and a little oil for cooking!
- No Rising - No need to wait hours for the dough to rise.
- Easy to Make - You don't even need a stand mixer, just mix together by hand and cook the flatbread in a regular skillet.
It only takes some pantry ingredients to make homemade flatbread and no yeast or rising is needed! Here's what you need:
- Plain Greek Yogurt - I prefer to use full-fat yogurt. You can substitute regular yogurt, but you will use much less since regular yogurt has more moisture (aka less thick) than Greek. I would start with about half the amount. You can use leftovers to make this Ninja Creami Frozen Yogurt! Do not use a flavored yogurt, like vanilla.
- All-Purpose Flour
- Kosher Salt
- Baking Powder
- Olive Oil - for cooking the flatbread. You can use a different oil, I just love the flavor of olive oil.
See the recipe card for full information on ingredients and quantities.
- Sesame Seeds - For a nutty flavor, sprinkle the rolled dough with sesame seeds before cooking.
- Add Herbs - Try mixing in dried herbs, like oregano, to the dry ingredients.
- Regular Yogurt - You can use non-greek yogurt, but make sure it is plain and use less of it than the Greek.
- Garlic - Try mixing in a little garlic powder to the dry ingredients for added garlic flavor.
🔪Step by Step Instructions:
You'll be so surprised at how easy it is to make homemade flatbread with yogurt! See the instructions below:
Photo 1 - Whisk together the dry ingredients then stir in the greek yogurt to form a dough. The exact amount of flour you will need depends on the moisture content of your yogurt.
Photo 2 - Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until mostly smooth. Divide into 4 pieces and wrap each in plastic wrap. Allow to rest at room temperature for 20 minutes
Photo 3 - Cut a dough ball in half and roll each piece into a thin circle using a rolling pin. I recommend only rolling out one or two pieces at a time. You want to roll the dough very thin so it cooks quickly and puffs up.
Photo 4 - Heat a large cast iron skillet and add a drizzle of olive oil. Cook the flatbread one at a time for about 2-3 minutes per side - the flatbread will puff up and parts will be browned.
Photo 3 - The flatbread will puff up and have some beautiful brown spots.
Photo 4 - Repeat with remaining dough until all flatbread are cooked.
- Roll the Dough Thin - The thinner the flatbread dough is, the quicker it will cook and puff up in the skillet. This is key to getting light and puffy flatbread.
- No Sticky Dough - You don't want the dough to be sticky. If it's sticky, then it will stick to the pan. You can add additional flour a tablespoon at a time, as needed.
- Easy to Double - This recipe is easy to double! Since the dough freezes well, making extra is a great idea!
Store leftover homemade flatbread in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
Yes, flatbread can be frozen! Freeze the flatbread in a freezer bag with pieces of wax paper or parchment in between. Flatbread can be frozen for up to 2 months. You can thaw at room temperature or warm up in the microwave for just a few seconds.
Flatbread dough freezes very well! After dividing the dough into 4 pieces, wrap each piece tightly in plastic wrap and place in a freezer container or freezer bag. Freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw dough overnight in the fridge then let rest at room temperature for 20 minutes before rolling and cooking.
Yes! Make sure to use plain yogurt - NOT flavored. Again I recommend using full fat yogurt. If you use regular yogurt, you will need much less since it has a high moisture content than Greek yogurt. I would start with half the amount of yogurt and you can add additional if needed to reach a dough consistency.
While pita is also a soft flatbread, similar to Greek flatbread - they are slightly different. Pita bread is slightly leavened (ie uses yeast and is left to rise before cooking) while flatbread is typically unleavened.
When used in bread recipes, like this flatbread recipe, Greek Yogurt does a few things. It adds a tangy flavor and the acidity in the yogurt helps make baked goods fluffy.

- 2-2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

- Mix Dough. Whisk together 2 cups of the flour, salt, and baking powder in a large bowl. Add the yogurt and stir together with a rubber spatula. If the dough feels overly sticky, add additional flour. The moisture content of the yogurt will impact how much flour you need.
- Knead Dough. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead for about 5 minutes. The dough should feel mostly smooth and not sticky. Divide the dough into 4 equal pieces and wrap each in plastic wrap. Allow to sit at room temperature for about 20 minutes to rest.
