Flatbreads! Easy to please a crowd but quick enough to have a quiet night in. With this recipe, you can prepare several flatbreads ahead of time.
The best part is that they’re easily customizable like a pizza, you can have a different one every time!
The featured ingredient this time is amaranth flour! It provides a number of nutritional benefits such as a good source of Vitamin C, protein, and micronutrients like iron and phosphorus. It also contains the essential amino acid lysine, which many vegetables and grains lack.
- 1/2 cup amaranth flour (or bean or rice flour)
- 1/2 cup tapioca flour
- 2 1/2 tsp arrowroot powder
- 2 tsp neutral, cold-pressed oil of your choice
- 1/2 cup water
- 2/3 cups extra flour for kneading
- Sift the two flours along with the arrowroot powder.
- Separately, mix the oil and water.
- Add the liquid ingredients to the flour mixture.
- First the dough with a fork, breaking up clumps, and then your hands.
- Knead the dough and roll into a ball.
- Divide the ball into 8 portions.
- Roll each of these portions into a ball, then pat flat.
- Lightly flour each portion.
- With a rolling pin. roll each between 2 sheets of wax paper.
- Even out the rolling by turning frequently, and occasionally sprinkle flour directly to the dough to avoid sticking (each portion should be 1/8 in. thick and rounded or whatever shape you desire)
- Preheat the oven to 400F.
- Heat a frying pan on medium high, then lightly oil.
- Add a flatbread to the pan and heat for 15-20 seconds on both sides.
- Immediately put the bread in oven for 3 minutes.
- Turn the bread over and heat 1 1/2 – 2 more minutes.
- The bread will puff up a bit, but not too much since there is no yeast.
- Lightly oil the pan again, and repeat for each flatbread.
- Let flatbreads cool before storing.
- Or add your favorite sauces and toppings and toss back in the oven!
- Makes 8 flatbreads

TIL arrowroot powder is a thing
TIL? But yes arrowroot powder is amazing to add in baking. I just found out about it recently
oh sorry it means, “Today I Learned…” it’s a reddit subpage
Alright thanks! Though reddit is…? Sorry, I don’t internet much.
reddit is like when facebook meets orums, but in really interesting ways that can give you the good, the bad, and the ugly
Sounds like the good, the bad, and the ugly is a reference too? I must live under a rock!
haha not at all! it’s an old western movie with clint eastwood
No way! I’ll have to pop on that movie
pop in a flatbread while you’re at it!
Oh my goodness, that’s a great idea
now i want to watch the movie with some flatbread…i’m just stuck on what toppings
Decisions right? I might start with a cheese flatbread and a pepperoni one. Classics that’ll set the baseline.
maybe i should do that! the recipe does make 8 of them afterall
Alright the jury (wife and kids) is in…they’re absolutly…delicious. Different textures but if you can crisp it right
whoa are you firing up a pizza kiln over there? jealous
No not at all! I recently got an air fryer
my friends keep telling me to get one of those. but i dont have room for another kitchen appliance
That’s what i thought too! Now it’s the only one I need
no way are you for real? so the legends are true
What can I say, legends make a name for themselves!
