Ingredients

  • Flatbread Dough:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 cup plain yogurt (or Greek yogurt)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil (plus extra for cooking)
  • 1/4 cup warm water (as needed)
  • Cheese Filling:
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley (optional)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Prepare the Dough:
  • In a large bowl, mix together the flour, salt, sugar, and baking powder.
  • Add the yogurt and olive oil to the dry ingredients and mix until a dough forms.
  • Gradually add warm water, a little at a time, until the dough is soft but not sticky.
  • Knead the dough on a floured surface for about 5 minutes until smooth and elastic.
  • Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it rest for about 30 minutes.
  1. Prepare the Cheese Filling:
  • In a bowl, combine the mozzarella, cheddar, parsley, and garlic (if using).
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  1. Assemble the Flatbreads:
  • Divide the dough into 4 equal portions.
  • Roll out each portion on a floured surface into a circle about 1/4 inch thick.
  • Place a generous amount of cheese filling in the center of each circle, leaving about 1 inch of dough around the edges.
  • Fold the edges of the dough over the filling and pinch to seal, forming a pouch.
  • Gently roll out each filled pouch into a flat circle, being careful not to tear the dough.
  1. Cook the Flatbreads:
  • Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat and add a small amount of olive oil.
  • Place a flatbread in the skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and crispy.
  • Repeat with the remaining flatbreads, adding more oil to the skillet as needed.
  1. Serve:
  • Cut the cheesy stuffed flatbreads into wedges and serve hot.
  • Enjoy with your favorite dipping sauce, such as marinara, ranch, or garlic butter.

Tips:

  • For a twist, add some cooked and crumbled bacon or sautéed mushrooms to the cheese filling.
  • You can also use store-bought pizza dough or naan bread for a quicker version.
  • If you prefer a spicier kick, add some red pepper flakes to the cheese mixture.
