Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 c all purpose flour more for rolling
  • 1 pk instant yeast
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 c water
  • 1/3 c yogurt
  • 1/4 c olive oil

Instructions

  • In a large mixing bowl add 2 cups of flour, salt, and instant yeast.
  • In a small bowl beat egg, yogurt, and olive oil until creamy and the egg is fully incorporated.
  • Make a hole in the flour and pour both the water and egg mixture. Using a wooden spoon or dough hooks on a mixer, work to form a stiff dough. If the dough is still too soft to form, add the remaining flour as needed. 
  • Roll dough ball onto a floured surface and knead for a few minutes until the dough ball is soft and smooth. (The dough should be soft and a little tacky but not sticky.)
  • Allow dough to rest for 20-30 min. Once risen, divide dough into 8 pieces of equal size. Cover with plastic wrap until ready to roll into discs.
  •  Roll each piece into 6 to 8-inch circles just before cooking. 
  • Heat a generously oiled cast iron skillet over med-high heat. Add each piece one at a time turning once you notice large bubbles.
  • Turn when it's golden brown. Serve warm with garlic-butter or as is.
