  • 10-12 inch Cast-Iron Skillet
  • Rolling Pin
  • Stand Mixer Fitted with a Dough Hook Attachment


Vegan Flatbread

  • cups flour
  • ½ cup semolina flour
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 cup warm water
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 tsp instant yeast

Herbed Topping

  • ½ cup assorted fresh herbs (finely chopped) basil, parsley, chives, dill
  • 3 tbsp minced garlic
  • ¼ cup melted vegan butter


  • In a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook attachment. Add in your water, oil, sugar and yeast. Mix it enough just to combine. Let it sit for about 10 minutes so the yeast can bubble up and activate.
  • Once the yeast has bubbled, add in your flours and salt. With the speed on low, mix for about 5-10 minutes until a dough forms. If it's too wet or sticky, sprinkle a little more flour.
  • Once the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl, use your hands to form the dough into a ball and transfer it to a greased bowl. Cover it loosely and let it rise until doubled in size. About 30-45 minutes.
  • Once the dough is doubled in size, punch it down to release the air and form it into a ball again. Cover and repeat this process 2 more times.
  • On the 3rd rise. Punch the dough down to release the air and transfer to a lightly floured surface. Tear off 3 ounce portions of the dough and form them into balls.
  • Using a rolling pin, roll the ball of dough into your desired shape. I prefer a more oval shape. If the dough starts sticking to your rolling pin or surface, add a bit more flour. Dust off any excess flour before cooking.
  • On a lightly oiled cast-iron griddle, cook the dough for about 2-3 minutes on each side on low-med heat. Brush with melted butter and add the herbed garlic mixture. Serve warm. Enjoy!

Herbed Mixture

  • Mix your herbs and garlic together until evenly combined.


  • If you don't have any vegan butter, you can use your favorite oil instead.
  • You can use any herbs that you prefer. This is a great way to incorporate whatever leftover herbs you have hanging around in your fridge. 
  • The addition of semolina adds a chewy texture and really elevates this flatbread.
  • If you're pressed for time or just don't feel like proofing the dough 3 times, just let it rise and double in size once and follow with the rest of the process. But the flavor is best when proofed often or, even overnight.
