Make delicious, soft flatbread with just two ingredients. No yeast required! This quick and easy recipe is perfect for homemade naan, homemade pizza crust, soft tacos and burgers.
This 2-ingredient flat bread is so darn easy to make, and it’s SO GOOD!
For years, whenever we have Indian, we always serve store-bought naan with dinner. Since discovering this gem of a recipe, we don’t bother with the store-bought naan anymore. We just whip up a batch of this homemade flatbread in the last few minutes that dinner is cooking. It’s perfect for soaking up sauce.
It’s so delicious it’s hard to believe it’s only two ingredients.
We’ve also used this recipe to make homemade soft pretzels and pretzel bites, and they were AMAZING!
You do need to use self-rising flour, but I’ll tell you how to make that with regular flour, baking powder and salt. And you do need to use Greek yogurt as opposed to regular yogurt because of the thicker consistency.
Apparently, you can use sour cream instead of Greek yogurt, but I haven’t tried that substitution yet. When I do, I’ll report back.
Like our no-yeast pizza dough, yeast is not required because baking powder (an ingredient in self-rising flour) acts as the leavening agent.
Ok! Let me show you how easy it is to make.

How To Make Self-Rising Flour:
Sift 2 cups all purpose flour. Add 1 tablespoon baking powder and 1 tsp salt. Whisk together well to combine. Use 1 and 3/4 cups of this mixture for this recipe.
- In a large mixing bowl, stir the yogurt and self-rising flour together. Use your hands to combine the ingredients well and then pack it into a ball.
- Put the ball of dough on a lightly floured counter and knead for a few minutes until you can form a fairly smooth ball. It won’t be perfectly smooth, but that’s ok.
- Using a knife, divide the ball into 8 even pieces.
- With a rolling pin, roll each piece into a thin oval.
- If cooking in a non-stick pan: Heat pan over medium heat. Place flattened dough in pan and heat for 2 minutes on each side, or until dark brown spots appear.
- If cooking in a cast iron pan: Wipe pan with cooking oil and a paper towel. Place flattened dough in pan and heat for a minute and a half on each side, or until dark brown spots appear.
Remove from pan and allow to cool slightly before serving.

To store warm flatbread, place in a paper bag.
To store cooled flatbread, store in a sealed ziplock bag.
