  • Dough:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Garlic Butter:
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped (optional)


  1. Prepare the Dough:
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, sugar, and garlic powder.
  • Add the warm water and olive oil to the dry ingredients and mix until a dough forms.
  • Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for about 5-7 minutes, until it becomes smooth and elastic.
  • Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a damp cloth, and let it rest for about 30 minutes.
  1. Divide and Roll Out the Dough:
  • After the dough has rested, divide it into 8 equal pieces.
  • Roll each piece into a ball, then flatten it with a rolling pin or your hands into a round or oval shape, about 1/4 inch thick.
  1. Cook the Flatbreads:
  • Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium-high heat.
  • Cook each flatbread for about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown spots appear and the bread puffs up slightly.
  • Remove from the skillet and place on a plate. Cover with a clean towel to keep warm while you cook the remaining flatbreads.
  1. Prepare the Garlic Butter:
  • In a small bowl, combine the melted butter and minced garlic.
  • Brush the warm flatbreads with the garlic butter, then sprinkle with fresh parsley if desired.
  1. Serve:
  • Serve the garlic flatbreads warm, with your favorite dips, spreads, or as an accompaniment to main dishes.
