Servings 6 servings


  • cups unbleached bread flour plus more as needed
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup warm water or milk 100-110 degrees F, or as needed


  • In a bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda and salt. Add the liquid and mix well, first with a wooden spoon, then with your hands, to form a ball of dough. The dough should be soft and pliable, but firm. You may also use a food processor, pulsing to form a soft, uniform ball of dough.
  • Divide the dough into six equal portions and form each into a ball. Cover the balls with kitchen towels and let them rest for 15 to 30 minutes. This will permit the dough to relax.
  • Working with one ball at a time, flatten it into a disk and place on a floured work surface. Using a rolling pin, then your hands to stretch it more, roll each dough ball into a round, thin disk about ?-inch thick. Pierce the dough with a fork.
  • Heat a heavy non-stick skillet over high heat. Place the first disk in the skillet and after about 2 minutes, flip it over. Let cook about 2 minutes. Remove and repeat the process with the remaining disks.
  • Top with your choice of grated cheese, chopped cooked vegetables, seasoned meats, toasted pine nuts, herbs, or other ingredients. Serve immediately.
