Quick & Easy Flatbread

Jenny Can Cook

Homemade flatbread smells and tastes amazing. Mine is more like pita bread or naan and you can use it to make your own gyros, pizza, focaccia, or dip it into hummus. No stand mixer? Mix by hand and knead about 50 turns. And always aerate your flour before measuring.- Jenny Jones
