There is nothing like homemade breads, this is a delicious recipe for Flat Bread.
1 cup warm water
1 Tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons granulated sugar
1/4 cup plain yogurt
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 1/2 cups bread flour, plus additional as needed
Sprinkle yeast over warm water in a medium mixing bowl.
Add oil, sugar, and yogurt and mix with a wooden spoon until well combined.
Add salt and bread flour, and mix until flour is incorporated.
Turn dough out of mixing bowl onto a very lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, 12 to 15 minutes, adding just enough flour until dough is not sticky but very soft. Allow dough to rise in warm place until doubled, 30 to 45 minutes.
On a lightly floured work surface, cut dough into eight equal portions. Shape each portion into a ball and let rest for 10 minutes. Usiing a rolling pin flatten each ball into a 4-inch circle and let rest for 10 minutes before rolling into a 6-inch circle.
Five to ten minutes before cooking flatbreads, heat a large, heavy skillet, cast iron works the best, over medium-high heat until hot.
Working one at a time, lift dough circles and gently stretch about one inch larger and place in skillet. Cook until small bubbles appear on surface of dough, about 30 seconds. Flip bread and cook until bottom is speckled and deep golden brown in spots, about 2 minutes. Flip bread again; cook until bottom is speckled and deep golden brown in spots, 1 to 2 minutes longer.
Wrap breads to a clean kitchen towel or in tin foil and serve warm.
