Gluten & Dairy Free Flat Bread

One of my favorite restaurants has this gluten free flat bread they bring out as an appetizer and it’s sooooo good. So lately I’ve been wanting to figure out my own flatbread recipe. This isn’t really like the restaurants – it’s more dense I would say – but it still turned out pretty good!

After referencing several recipes and the instructions on the RapidRise Yeast packet, here’s what I ended up doing:

Flat Bread

Prep Time: 30 minutes
Bake Time: 7-11 minutes
Yields: 3 or 12 pieces {or whatever you want really}

{for 12 servings}

  • 4 cups tapioca flour {starch}
  • 6 cups Pamela’s Bread mix
  • 4 TBS olive oil
  • 1 packet RapidRise Yeast
  • 2 1/2 cups warm water
  • 1 tsp salt

{for 3 servings}

  • 1 cup tapioca flour
  • 1 1/2 cups Pamela’s
  • 1 TBS olive oil
  • 1/4 packet RapidRise Yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Mix flours, salt and yeast in large bowl. Add oil and warm water and knead on floured surface for around 5 minutes – making sure the dough isn’t to sticky or crumbly {aka add a small amount of water or all purpose gf flour (Pamela’s) as needed}. Form into ball and cover in bowl: let sit 10 minutes. {My dough didn’t really do anything in those 10 minutes, it’s just what the yeast packet said to do.}

Preheat oven to 475.

With a 1/2 cup measuring cup, I scooped out the dough, rolled into balls, then flattened them on pans in an ovalish shape & coated the top with EVOO {olive oil} – I let these sit for around 30 minutes {because some recipes suggest you let them rise} but nothing happened, so I don’t really think that step is necessary.

To bake 11 in my regular oven it took 11 minutes {until just barely golden on the edges – I checked several times along the way.}

The 1 leftover that wouldn’t fit took 7 minutes in the toaster oven.

We ate two and froze the rest. – I’ve already pulled one out of the freezer & toasted it – it heated up really well!

You can eat these with a side of olive oil and grated Parmesan {for dipping} or for a more dessert type treat coat with butter, sugar, & cinnamon – yum!

  1. Oh yum. That last picture made me starving! I will have to try these as I am missing bread hard core since I stopped eating gluten. It's only been 24 hours and I'm dying!

  2. Still waiting on the results, but I am not eating any gluten or dairy right now. I am going to try to re-introduce dairy again in two weeks, but regardless of the test results I'm trying the gluten free thing to see if it makes me feel better.

  3. Wow – well I'm sorry you haven't been feeling well 🙁 It's definitely an adjustment at first, but once you get used to it it's really not that bad! For me it took a whole month eating gluten free before I started feeling better, and then it gradually kept improving after that. Definitely email me if you want any ideas or have any questions 🙂
