Hi Bold Bakers!
One of my specialties is taking things that might seem unapproachable and making them easy and foolproof. My Flatbread Recipe makes an easy and delicious flatbread with only 3 ingredients! That means in no time, with no yeast, no eggs, and no difficult techniques, you and your family can enjoy homemade flatbread.
Similar to a traditional Indian flatbread or naan bread, this flatbread is made with a base of low-fat yogurt and flour and that’s it!
This recipe also calls for a skillet over a baking sheet. Cooked on the stovetop, this bread takes just a few minutes to crisp and bubble up. The finished product is a big stack of toasty, chewy, and savory flatbread.
What’s The Difference Between “Flatbread” And “Naan”?
Some of you who might be familiar with flatbread might be wondering what differentiates a naan bread from a flatbread. Well, flatbread is often compared to pita bread which naturally forms a pocket in the center while cooking, whereas naan bread is flat and more likened to a wrap or tortilla — which is usually made to go alongside Mexican cuisine.

Since this easy and delicious flatbread is made with yogurt, it is extremely similar to naan bread, and naan is always made with yogurt. Whatever you choose to call this bread, I promise once you make it all you’re going to call it is YUMMY!
