Versatile, dead easy flat breads

I love all types of ‘wrap em up’ foods – tacos, falafel sandwich, kebab and plain old sandwiches. My favourite is probably tacos, but that is more a hark back to the old El Paso stuff we had as kids. Still good for something that comes in a yellow box, but I will only use them in an absolute pinch. Instead, I do my best to make everything myself – no powdered, no frozen dough, no preservatives.Now this little one isn’t a taco, but it’s awesome in all sorts like kebabs and to dip into stuff like shakshuka. Also, they’re dead easy.

Flatbreads (makes 4)


  • 200g strong white flour
  • 100ml warm water
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Combine everything in a bowl and then knead together on a floured surface.
  2. If it’s too sticky at more flour, too crumbly add more water.
  3. When the dough is smooth cover in cling film and let it rest for 15-20 mins.
  4. Divide into four and then roll out into like 4-6inch round flat breads.
  5. Heat a frying pan with no oil to really hot then throw in one flatbread at a time.
  6. When they’ve puffed up, flip them. About 1-2 mins each side
