Flatbread (Pizza) Dough

Free

This versatile dough is a breeze to make in a food processor and can used for pizzas with various toppings or Middle Eastern–style flatbreads. The Greek yogurt makes a supple dough that's easy to work with and that bakes up with a chewy-soft crumb and subtle richness. For convenience, the dough can be made a day in advance. After dividing the dough in half and forming each piece into a round, place each portion in a quart- size zip-close bag that's been misted with cooking spray, seal well and refrigerate overnight. Allow the dough to come to room temperature before shaping.

Tip

Don’t undermix the dough in the food processor; it needs a full minute of processing to build the gluten that provides structure and strength. When done, the dough may be warm to the touch; this is normal.

Ingredients
  • 241

    grams (1¾ cups) bread flour, plus more for dusting

  • teaspoons instant yeast

  • teaspoons kosher salt

  • ¾

    cup plain whole-milk Greek-style yogurt

  • 1

    tablespoon honey

Step 1 of 3

Create Dough Mixture

241
grams (1¾ cups) bread flour
teaspoons instant yeast
teaspoons kosher salt
¾
cup plain whole-milk Greek-style yogurt
1
tablespoon honey

In a food processor, combine the flour, yeast and salt, then process until combined, about 5 seconds. Add the yogurt, honey and 1⁄4 cup water. Process until the mixture forms a ball, about 30 seconds; the dough should be tacky to the touch and should stick slightly to the sides of the bowl.


If it feels too dry, add more water, 1 tablespoon at a time, and process until incorporated. Continue to process until the dough is shiny and elastic, about 1 minute.

Step 2 of 3

Divide Bread Dough

bread flour for dusting

Transfer the dough, to a lightly floured counter. Flour your hands and knead the dough a few times, until it forms a smooth ball. Divide the dough in half and form each half into a taut ball by rolling it against the counter in a circular motion under a cupped hand.


Space the balls about 6 inches apart on a lightly floured counter, then cover with plastic wrap. Let rise until doubled in volume, 1 to 11⁄2 hours.

Step 3 of 3

Bake Bread

About 1 hour before baking, heat the oven to 500°F with a baking steel or stone on the upper-middle rack. Working one at a time, gently stretch each ball on a lightly floured counter to an oval approximately 6 inches wide and 12 inches long. The dough is now ready to top and bake.
