Sesame Flatbread

Enjoy these simple flatbreads with homemade hummus or Middle Eastern falafel.

Makes 8 flatbreads


  • 1 cup warm water
  • ½ teaspoon baking yeast
  • ¼ cup plain yogurt
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 1¾ cups unbleached white flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil


  1. In a bowl, combine the water and yeast. Let sit for 2 minutes, until the yeast dissolves. Stir in the yogurt. Then stir in the whole wheat flour and sesame seeds.
  2. In another bowl, stir together the unbleached white flour, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add the dry mixture to the first bowl, stirring to form a soft dough. On a clean, lightly floured work surface, knead the dough for 3 to 5 minutes. Add only enough flour to prevent the dough from sticking. Rub the dough with the olive oil.
  3. Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces. Form each piece of dough into a ball. Use a rolling pin to roll each piece of dough into a circle about 8 inches in diameter.
  4. Cook the flatbreads on a hot griddle for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, until golden brown and slightly puffed. Stack the cooked flatbreads on a plate and cover with a clean cloth.
