Fairtrade 4 Pepper Flatbreads

Preparation time: 15 mins plus 30 for resting

Cooking time: 5 minutes

Makes: 8



  1. Place the flour, Steenbergs 4 Colour Peppercorn Mix and salt in a large bowl.
  2. Pour the yeast, caster sugar, olive oil, and water into a jug and mix well.
  3. Make a well in the centre of the flour and pour in the warm water mixture. With a fork make little circles in the water gradually bringing in more flour from the sides until you have a dough.
  4. Flour a work surface and knead the dough until soft and elastic. Clean and flour the mixing bowl, return the dough to the bowl, cover with a damp tea towel and leave in a warm place to rise for 30 mins.
  5. Place a griddle pan on the heat.
  6. Knock back the dough by kneading it for another 2 minutes, divide into 8 equal portions and roll out flat with a rolling pin. Cook the flatbreads in the griddle pan on a high heat until coloured on both sides.
  7. Serve filled with meat, salads or roasted vegetables or enjoy as an accompaniment to Middle Eastern or Asian dishes.
