  • 1 cup bread flour, plus more for rolling out the dough
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup warm water, plus more if necessary
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil


  • Mix the flour and salt in the food processor.
  • Stir together the water and oil and pour over the flour mixture.
  • Process until a soft dough ball forms. If the dough is too stiff, add another tablespoon of water and continue to process until the dough is well kneaded, 15 - 20 seconds.
  • Lightly dust your hands and a clean surface with flour. Turn out the dough onto the lightly floured surface and cut the dough into quarters.
  • Working with 1/4 of the dough at a time, roll each out to a 12 x 4 - inch rectangle, dusting with flour and turning as necessary to prevent it from sticking.
  • Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat. (All four flatbreads should fit crosswise on the same sheet.)
  • Top as desired and bake in a hot (450F-500F degree) oven until the crust is golden and crisp (10 - 15 minutes).

Recipe Notes

  • Substitute 1 cup white wheat flour for bread flour, if desired. This dough will be stiffer and take longer to form a ball.
  • For whole wheat crust, use 1/2 cup bread flour and 1/2 cup whole wheat flour. This is delicious, but chewier and less crisp.
