Air Fryer Flatbread

Table of Contents

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup Greek yogurt (plain)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Optional toppings: garlic butter, herbs, cheese, etc.

Instructions:

Step 1: Prepare the Dough

  1. Mix Dry Ingredients:
    • In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  2. Add Wet Ingredients:
    • Add the Greek yogurt to the dry ingredients and mix until a dough forms. If the dough is too dry, add a little more yogurt; if it’s too wet, add a bit more flour.
  3. Knead the Dough:
    • Transfer the dough to a floured surface and knead for about 5 minutes until smooth and elastic.
  4. Rest the Dough:
    • Place the dough back in the bowl, cover with a damp cloth, and let it rest for 15-20 minutes.

Step 2: Shape the Flatbreads

  1. Divide the Dough:
    • After resting, divide the dough into 6-8 equal portions, depending on how large you want your flatbreads.
  2. Roll Out the Flatbreads:
    • On a floured surface, roll out each portion into a thin, round or oval shape, about 1/4 inch thick.

Step 3: Air Fry the Flatbreads

  1. Preheat the Air Fryer:
    • Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C) for about 5 minutes.
  2. Cook the Flatbreads:
    • Lightly brush one side of the flatbread with olive oil and place it in the air fryer basket, oiled side down. Brush the other side with olive oil.
  3. Air Fry:
    • Cook for 3-4 minutes, then flip and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes until golden brown and puffed. Repeat with the remaining flatbreads.

Step 4: Serve

  1. Serve Warm:
    • Serve the flatbreads warm, brushed with garlic butter, sprinkled with fresh herbs, or topped with cheese if desired.

Tips for Perfect Flatbreads:

  • Even Thickness: Roll the dough out evenly to ensure consistent cooking. Uneven flatbreads can result in some parts being overcooked while others are undercooked.
  • Customize Toppings: Customize your flatbreads with various toppings before air frying. Try adding minced garlic, fresh herbs, shredded cheese, or even a sprinkle of sea salt.
  • Make Ahead: You can prepare the dough ahead of time and refrigerate it for up to 24 hours. Bring it to room temperature before rolling out and cooking.
  • Serving Suggestions: Air fryer flatbreads are incredibly versatile. Serve them with hummus, tzatziki, or your favorite dip. Use them as a base for mini pizzas or as a side with soups and salads.

Optional Garlic Butter Topping:

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Prepare Garlic Butter:
    • In a small bowl, mix the melted butter, minced garlic, and chopped parsley.
  2. Brush Flatbreads:
    • Brush the warm flatbreads with the garlic butter before serving for an extra layer of flavor.
