  • 1 ½ cups warm water
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 ¼ teaspoons active dry yeast 1 packet
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil plus extra for greasing bowl and baking sheet


  • Place water, honey and yeast in a bowl of a stand mixer. Let sit for 5 minutes until yeast is active and mixture is bubbly
    1 ½ cups warm water, 1 tablespoon honey, 2 ¼ teaspoons active dry yeast
  • Add one cup of flour along with olive oil and salt to yeast mixture. Continue adding flour and mixing with a dough hook on a stand mixer until a ball is formed (you might not need the full 4 cups of flour)
    4 cups flour, 1 teaspoon salt, 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Once a ball is formed, feel the dough. It should feel tacky, but not sticky. If it's too sticky, add 1-2 tablespoons of additional flour.
  • Knead on stand mixer at a low speed for 10 minutes
  • Form dough into a ball and place in a bowl lightly greased with olive oil. Cover and let rise until doubled in size
  • Gently deflate dough and cut into 10 even sized pieces. Form each piece into a ball.
  • Flatten each piece into a 4 inch disc with your hands or a rolling pin. Place on a lightly greased pan with olive oil. Cover and let rest for 20-30 minutes
  • While bread is resting, preheat grill with all burners on high. You want the grates hot. Keep on high for at least 20 minutes with the cover on the grill closed.
  • Place each piece of bread on the grill. Keep cover open and heat on high. Grill for 3-4 minutes per side.
  • Remove and place on a baking rack until cooled


  • Make certain your grill is fully preheated
  • The grate should be clean. Be certain to scrape it well before adding the dough
  • Keep the lid open while cooking
  • Actual cook time will vary depending on your grill, the thickness of your flatbread and the outside temperature. If it's a cool day, your flatbread may take a bit longer to cook.
  • Peak at the underside to determine if bread is ready to be flipped. You want a nice golden color, but not burnt.
  • Use a long pair of tongs or a long handled spatula to flip the bread
  • Allow bread to cool before eating
