Gluten Free Flat Bread

If you follow me on Instagram you will know that I have been experimenting with gluten free flours lately. Only ever making gluten free flour pancakes and buckwheat flour pancakes, today I ventured out into making flat bread.

We were rather pleased at how they turned out, super quick and easy to make. The flat bread had a good soft texture and a little crunch too. Jake even suggested that they would be great as pizza bases, so I guess that's my next mission!

Gluten Free Flat Bread


1 cup of gluten free flour mix (I used doves farm)
1/2 cup of warm water
a pinch of sea salt 
oil for greasing  


1. Heat a pan to a medium high heat. Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix till a firm dough forms. You may need to wait for the dough to cool so it is easy to work with.

Your dough should be easy to handle, and not sticky - if so add a tiny bit more flour.

2. Dived the dough into 8 large pieces or 4 small, and roll into balls. Flour a flat surface and roll out using a combination of a rolling pin and fingertips, try and roll it out as thin as you can. I used a flat spatula to transfer the rolled dough to the pan.

3. Use a tiny amount of oil or butter to grease your pan. Cook the flat bread and flip when bubbles appear on the dough.

These can also be cooked in an oven using the top grill at full blast and turning once you see bubbles.

This recipe is super flexible, the flatbread could be used as tortillas, served with curries and soups, made as pizza bases or just eaten with hummus and dips.
