Incredible 5-MINUTE Garlic Flatbread Recipe

There is nothing better than homemade bread, but in all honesty, it can be a pain in the neck to make. Between kneading the dough, waiting for it to rise and then making sure you bake it correctly, it get´s overwhelming. Now erase all that. I present to you the most Incredible 5-MINUTE Garlic Flatbread Recipe.


This is the real deal folks. These garlic flatbreads have the most amazing flavors, they´re made with basic pantry staples and it only takes 5 minutes of prep work. Now you can have warm fresh bread in a jiffy 🙂 .


My favorite part about these flatbreads, is that you don´t have to bake them. You cook them on a grilling pan over a stove top. This makes it so much easier & quicker, and the bread still has the most amazing texture & flavor. Speaking of flavors, make sure to use a GREAT Olive Oil. This is the base fat of the flatbread and is what really flavors it.


TIPS & TRICKS to Make this Recipe: I used all-purpose flour to make these flatbreads, but you can use whole wheat flour or a combination of both. The grilling pan I used heats very quickly and evenly distributes the heat. This means it only takes about 75 seconds per side to cook these flatbreads. If you don´t have a grilling pan, you can use a standard frying pan. However, cooking times will be longer.

Key Ingredients & Cookware I used in this Recipe:
GRILLING PAN
EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
SPANISH SEA SALT

    I really like your recipes, and your YouTube appearances! You keep it simple, and delicious! I love breads and made this garlic flatbread recipe and it came out perfectly! Just like in your photos! I did cheat just a little bit: I had a bag of self-rising flour on the pantry shelf, so I used it and it worked most excellently, and made the prep time even shorter. Next time I am going to experiment with using a kiss of garlic oil along with the finely chopped garlic, for maximum garlic attack! Please keep the videos and recipes coming!

    Awesome! I asked for a bread recipe, and you gave me a bread recipe!
    If you have a recipe for a basic “pan de masa dura” (like you see all around Andalucia), I would love to see that as well 😉

    Thanks!
