Flatbread’s make the perfect appetizer and pizza base! Made from simple ingredients that include whole wheat flour and water, it’s no wonder flatbreads have been a staple in human diets for 5,000 years.

Make our homemade flatbread, brush with a little olive oil and garlic and pop in the oven for a few minutes to serve alongside our Moroccan Meatballs above. Or, top it with some of your favourite pizza toppings! Did someone say Cheeseburger Pizza?



2¼ teaspoons of dry active yeast

1 cup whole wheat pastry flour

1 cup all–purpose flour

½ teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon sugar

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

3/4 cups of warm water


Combine the warm water and sugar in a bowl

Stir to dissolve.

Sprinkle the yeast over the top and let that become foamy (approximately 5-6 minutes).

While that is foaming, combine flours and salt in a large bowl. Mix well

Pour foamy, yeast water mixture into flour mixture.

Stir until a dough ball forms

Knead for 3-4 minutes or until smooth and stiff. Add flour to prevent sticking.

Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover with a clean kitchen cloth and allow to rise (1-1.5 hours).

Divide dough into small balls.

On a floured surface, roll balls out until flat or 1/4 inch think – you don’t want them super think or they wont cook properly!

Cook in a hot skillet with a little oil for 3-4 minutes on each side


Flatbread can be made up to one day ahead as long as they are stored in an airtight container at room temperature!

To top the flatbread:

Here’s the fun trick, you can top your flatbread with any number of ingredients or combinations of fruit, vegetables, sauces, cheeses and meats! Think of it as a gourmet pizza and add what you and your family want! Some of our favourite toppings combos are:

  • Portobello mushrooms, one shallot, mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese, pesto sauce, fresh spinach and crumbled ground beef.
  • Ground beef, chopped onion and dill pickles and cheddar cheese with a drizzle of mustard and/or ketchup for a classy cheeseburger flatbread appetizer.
  • Thinly sliced steak, whiskey caramelized onions and horseradish aioli

After topping your flatbread, simply place flatbread on a baking sheet, bake in the oven for 5 minutes at 400°C and broil until cheese (if applicable) is melted – this only takes a minute or two so watch carefully so it doesn’t burn!
