About the Recipe


  • 4 cups all-purpose flour

  • teaspoons baking powder

  • 3 teaspoon fine sea salt

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil

  • 4 tablespoons pure maple syrup or sugar

  • 1 1/2 cup cold water

  • Vegetable oil for cooking


Make the Dough:

  1. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt together until well blended.

  2. Make a well in the middle of the flour mixture, and then add olive oil, maple syrup, and most of the water (saving a few tablespoons to add later as necessary).

  3. Switch to a rubber spatula or spoon and stir the wet ingredients into the flour mixture. If the dough seems dry, add the remaining water. When the dough comes together, transfer to a floured work surface and knead 5 to 10 times until smooth. Cover with a clean dish cloth and leave for 10 minutes.

Cook the Flatbreads:

  1. Divide the dough into six equal pieces. Dust each piece in flour and roll into a disc that’s between 1/8-inch and 1/4-inch thick. (Rolling thinner will make thinner bread that’s less soft in the middle. Rolling thicker will make thicker, fluffier bread.)

  2. Add one to two tablespoons of oil to a skillet placed over medium heat. When the oil looks shimmery, add a flatbread (or more if they fit), and cook until golden brown on one side, flip and cook until golden brown on the second side, 1 to 2 minutes on each side.

  3. Transfer cooked flatbread to a plate, cover with a clean dish towel to keep warm, and then continue with the remaining flatbreads. If the skillet looks dry, add a little more oil before continuing.

  4. Serve warm alongside a dip of your choice
