My kids were clamouring for pizza the other evening and this 2-ingredient flatbread pizza base saved the day! With only Greek yoghurt and gluten free self raising flour needed, this is a fab speedy alternative when you don’t have time to make a yeasted base.

I adapted the recipe from the flatbread in my cookbook, Eat & Enjoy Gluten Free, which has 100 delicious gluten free recipes that I think you will love. Thank you so much to everyone who has supported me thus far by buying a copy – the response to my book has blown me away and I am overjoyed reading your glowing reviews.

What Is Self Raising Flour?

For those of you who don’t have this option available to buy locally, you can simply make your own. Take your usual gluten free plain flour blend and add 1 tsp baking powder per 100g of plain flour to make self raising.

So for this specific recipe, add 2 tsp baking powder alongside the flour. I would also recommend adding a quarter tsp xanthan gum, if your base blend does not contain it. It’s not essential, but it helps give a better texture.

Which Blend Do You Use?

I use the FREEE by Doves Farm gluten free self raising flour, as it is very widely available in the UK. You can also make your own blend from scratch, using the recipe in my cookbook, if you prefer. I’ll aim to add it to my website too as soon as I have time.

Tips For Success

Preheat that oven tray! This will ensure you get a nice crispy base and a flatbread that rises well in the oven, from the instant heat.

Try using sundried tomato paste – especially homemade (very easy, empty a jar of sundried tomatoes, with oil, capers, whatever else is in there, and blitz until smooth – return to the jar and store in the fridge) – or red pesto to top your flatbread. The oil will help with crisping and they both give a lovely flavour.

Gluten Free Flatbread Pizza Recipe

This recipe will make 2 flatbread pizza, the size of a large pitta. If you want to make more (or large pizzas), simply double the ingredients and follow the same method.

Gluten Free Flatbread Pizza
Yield: Makes 2 Pizzette

Gluten Free Flatbread Pizza

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

With only 2 ingredients needed for the flatbread base, this recipe is perfect when you want a speedy pizza on your plate in under 30 minutes.


  • 200g (7 oz) gluten free self raising flour (I used FREEE by Doves Farm)
  • 160g (5.5 oz) full fat Greek yoghurt
  • Toppings of your choice - I recommend sundried tomato paste/pesto, shredded mozzarella, mushrooms, roasted peppers, capers and sliced chorizo - all delicious!


  1. Mix the gluten free self raising flour and the Greek yoghurt together in a bowl with a fork, then get your hand in the bowl and knead until you have a very soft, smooth dough. If it's still sticky, add a little bit of flour until it's nice and smooth and no longer tacky.
  2. Preheat your oven to 200C and place a baking tray in the oven on the top shelf to preheat.
  3. Divide the dough in half and place the two pieces on a silicone baking mat (or strong non-stick baking paper). Very lightly flour the top and then roll out to 4-5mm thick ovals using a small rolling pin. Or pat out with your hands if you don't have one. Neaten the edges but pushing them gently with a dough cutter/knife blade or other flat utensil.
  4. Spread a thin layer of sundried tomato paste or pesto all over the pizzas, then added shredded mozzarella and the toppings of your choice. Or get creative and top with whatever you like - try not to use any very wet toppings (or if you do you may want to increase the cooking time slightly).
  5. Carefully slide the baking mat with the pizzas onto the preheated baking tray and cook the pizzas on the top shelf of your oven for 15 minutes at 200C.
  6. Remove from the oven, slice and enjoy!


Dairy free/vegan option - simply use a plant-based yoghurt, I find the Alpro Greek works very nicely. You may need a little extra flour if your choice of yoghurt is thinner in consistency, so just add a little until you have a smooth dough.

The dough can be made in advance, simply wrap in cling film and store in the fridge for up to 24 hours.

I hope these gluten free flatbread pizza are a hit in your household. For more gluten free recipes, why not save some of these for later:

Happy cooking! Laura xxx
