Yoghurt based flat breads

We eat a lot of Mediterranean food, and curries in our house, and since we have making all our own yoghurt (I use a slow cooker batch which works out really cheap), I have been making flatbreads to use instead of pasta, rice or potatoes.  To make two flat breads I use the following:-


175g of thick, plain yoghurt

175g self raising flour

Pinch of salt


  1. Put the yoghurt in a bowl
  2. Sieve the flour and salt in to the bowl and mix in a bowl  with a spoon.
  3. If the mixture is too wet, add a bit more flour
  4. Put on to a floured board and knead for a couple of minutes.
  5. Roll into a shape.
  6. I place mine into two recycled, oiled, foil trays.
  7. I cook mine in the air fryer for about 10 minutes at 200C (until golden brown), and turn them over half way through.  You can also cook them in the oven or under a grill.

When I made them last night I switched up the dough by adding paprika and garlic.  Sometimes I will just add mixed herbs, or add sundried tomatoes and peppers and eat them with cream cheese on top.   You can experiment with any herbs or spices that you have.

You can use any amount of yoghurt and add the same amount of flour to make as many flat breads as you want.  These also make great pizza bases. When I was really broke, years ago, I would make flat breads with just flour and water and cook them under the grill.  These made with yoghurt are thicker and fluffier than those.

      No worries. We make them as a last minute snack with hummus or to make a quick pizza for lunch. We find them really useful x

    I’m definitely going to try these in my ninja. Do you use the air fryer setting or bake /roast setting please?

      I use the air fry setting. I use it for pastry too as it seems to take for ages on the baking setting

    Hi Toni, can I ask do you strain your yogurt to make it thicker, or just use as it’s made?

      I make it in the slow cooker and it has always come out thick and so I have not had to strain it yet. If your yoghurt is runny this recipe still works but you just add more flour until you get the right consistency x

    Will be definitely doing these the next time I have my oven on – love the idea of sun-dried tomatoes too

      They might take a bit longer in the oven if it is not high x

    I made mine in a frying pan cooking a few minutes on each side. I like your way better as it took ages when I made a batch. I will try this in the oven. Thank you.

      I will add frying pan to the methods of cooking now that I know it works as I had never done it that way. Thanks x

    Thank you, I definitely want to try these! I’m dairy free, so am going to try with soya yoghurt and see how that works out. It will taste slightly different, but hopefully will be much the same. Oat yoghurt (which I plan to try to make some time, too) would be better, but I don’t know if there’s any available in the shops.

      I hope that they work out ok. I have not tried them with that. If it is more runny then you might need more flour x

    I use this recipe but I dry fry them on my pancake pan. It’s never occurred to me to grill or oven cook them and I don’t have an air fryer. Yours are thicker and fluffier looking than mine so I think I’ll try the oven next time it’s on for something else.

      It is funny how we adapt to what we have. I didn’t have a frying pan as I never fried anything until Mr S moved in and hadn’t thought of frying them. I leave them quite thick as I tend to press them into shape with my hands rather than rolling them which does not knock as much air out of them, and the self raising flour helps to fluff them up as well.
