Easy Yogurt Flatbread – Yummy Toddler Food



With two main ingredients and no rising time, this Yogurt Flatbread has protein and is the yummiest component. We love it with hummus for an easy kids meal—and how well it stores for future meals!

This post is sponsored by Stonyfield.

Last year, I started making Greek Yogurt Pizza Dough and it quickly became one of my favorite ways to make pizza dough because it’s both super easy and very delicious. I then realized I can use a similar recipe and method to make flatbread that is tender, flavorful, and so darn easy.

You can mix together this bread dough and have the whole thing ready to eat under 20 minutes. There’s no waiting for it to rise or rest, and no need for yeast. It’s similar to naan bread in flavor and texture, and can be used in similar ways.

I love using Stonyfield plain yogurt here since it is mild in flavor and has the perfect creamy consistency. Plus, Stonyfield yogurt is made with high-quality organic ingredients and has a flavorful yet not-too-tangy taste.

You can also make the yogurt flatbread ahead of time and stash in the fridge or freezer until ready to eat. This is a great option to dip into hummus as an easy summer lunch idea or shortcut toddler meal. It’s also delicious as a side dish for any meal with a flavorful sauce you don’t want to miss, like my Butter Chicken or Channa Masala Chickpeas.

Ingredients You Need

Here’s a look at the ingredients you need to make this yogurt flatbread so you know what to have on hand and ready to go.

Ingredients for yogurt flatbread on countertop.
  • Yogurt: I prefer to use plain whole-milk, full-fat Greek yogurt in this yogurt flatbread because the moisture content is lower then regular-style yogurt, which means you need less flour to make dough with a great consistency. The protein content is also higher, which helps it to be a little more filling.
  • Self-rising flour: This flour cuts down on the ingredients you need since it has leavening in it already, so I love to use it here. You can also use all-purpose flour and baking powder, so see the Notes at the end of the recipe at the bottom of the page for that information.
  • Olive oil: I add a little extra-virgin olive oil to the dough to help the texture be easier to work with and a little softer. I also like to brush it onto the rolled out dough, especially if I’m adding coarse salt and dried herbs since it helps them adhere nicely.
  • Dried herbs and coarse salt (kosher or otherwise): These are optional to add more flavor to the flatbread. I usually make half of the batch with just olive oil and half with herbs such as oregano, basil, or Italian seasoning to please everyone in my family.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does yogurt do to bread dough?

The yogurt in this recipe provides moisture and mixes with the flour to make a simple dough, and also helps it have structure without the need to knead it much.

Is flatbread healthy?

This yogurt flatbread is a good source of protein and calcium, making it a nutritious bread for toddlers (and adults).

What to do with leftover yogurt?

You can use it to make more yogurt flatbread, add it to a Strawberry Smoothie, use it to make Mango Popsicles, or eat it by the spoonful.

How to Store

Let cool completely, then store leftover yogurt flatbread in an airtight container or storage bag in the fridge for up to a week. Or in the freezer for up to 6 months. Thaw and reheat briefly to warm through and serve.

Best Tips for Success

  • Use self-rising flour or all-purpose flour and baking powder. See the Notes at the end of the recipe for more details.
  • I prefer to use Greek yogurt here for best results.
  • Use melted butter instead of olive oil for brushing, if desired.
  • If your dough is at all sticky, add 1-2 tablespoons additional flour or sprinkle the parchment paper with flour.
  • You can make 4 small flatbreads or one large one.
  • Use as easy pizza doughs, as you would pita bread, or to make flatbread pizza.
  • Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese before baking for even more flavor.

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Add the flour, yogurt, salt, and olive oil to a medium bowl. Use a spoon to bring the dough together, then use clean hands to knead lightly for 1 minute to make a smooth dough.

  • Cut into 4 pieces. Use hands or a rolling pin dusted with flour to spread or roll the dough out to about ¼ inch thick.

  • Optional: Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and oregano.

  • Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until slightly puffy and lightly golden brown.

  • Serve warm.

  • Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Warm briefly on a heat-safe plate in the microwave or in a toaster oven. You can also freeze leftover cooked pizza. Let cool first, then transfer to a freezer bag and remove as much of the air as possible. Seal and freeze for up to 6 months.
  • To make the dough ahead, follow the recipe through step 2 and transfer to a plastic storage bag. Remove as much air as possible and seal. Store in the fridge for up to 24 hours. Let sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes before rolling out. Proceed with the recipe.
  • Greek yogurt works best in this recipe.
  • Sub in whole wheat flour and add 1-2 tablespoons water as needed to bring the dough together.
  • Trade in pesto for the pizza sauce.
  • Use whichever pizza toppings your family enjoys such as pepperoni, sliced olives, minced onion, diced cooked chicken, thinly sliced or diced bell peppers, cooked crumbled sausage, or herbs including fresh basil to finish.
  • Find my full Pizza Rolls recipe here. Double the dough recipe here and check for doneness starting at 14 minutes as this yogurt dough bakes through faster than traditional pizza dough.
