Recipe by Sackville
READY IN: 1hr 45mins




  • Mix the flour, salt and yeast together and then stir in the warm water and olive oil to make a soft dough.
  • Transfer to a floured surface and knead for five minutes until springy, using extra flour if it's too sticky.
  • Shape into a ball, brush over a little more oil, cover and leave to rise in a warm place until it doubles in size.
  • This should take about an hour.
  • Knead again on a floured surface and divide into six pieces, rolling each chunk into a ball.
  • Leave to rise for 10 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 240 C or 475 F.
  • Meanwhile, roll the balls flat until they're only 3mm or 1/8 of an inch thick and about 17cm or 7 inches across.
  • Place on greased baking sheets, cover with a tea towel and let rest for 30 minutes.
  • Spray the dough with water and bake for two minutes.
  • Check to make sure they haven't gone hard and if not, bake for a couple minutes more.
  • You want them firm but not hard or brown.
  • Remove from the oven and serve immediately with dips or as a wrap for all sorts of fillings.
  • Great with kebabs!
  • If you must serve them later, you can brush them lightly with oil and then reheat them by briefly heating them in a frying pan.
