I just love the taste of cheese together with herbs & garlic...
Would you like garlic or herb bread with your meal, the wait staff ask...well can I have both? And throw in some sstttrrreeeetchyyyyy cheese for good measure!
So here it is, my version of flatbread stuffed with cheese, garlic & herbs. Also only 30 mins start to finish! I have said the recipe serves 4, and this assumes one 14cm or 5 1/2 inch round per person - if you wanted to serve 8 you could just go half a round per person.
Hope you enjoy them - we did at our house!

Cheesy Garlic Flatbread with Herbs
- 1 cup Self Raising flour - sifted
- 3/4 cup / 170g low fat greek yoghurt
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- 1 1/4 cups/ 140g shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1 garlic clove crushed/minced
- 1 tbsp. fresh oregano leaves roughly chopped
- 1 tsp fresh thyme leaves
- 1/4 cup flat leaf parsley roughly chopped
- 1 tbsp. melted butter
- 2 pinches fine salt
- In a medium bowl combine yoghurt and oil, mix to incorporate fully.
- Add SR flour and a pinch of salt to the yoghurt and mix to combine (see notes).
- Turn on to a lightly floured board/surface and knead lightly to make a smooth ball.
- Divide dough ball in half, then divide each ball in half again, then divide those 4 balls in half again - you will end up with 8 even size balls (see notes).
- Roll out each ball of dough into 14cm or 5 1/2 inch rounds (see notes).
- Mix together grated cheese, herbs, garlic & remaining pinch of salt until thoroughly combined - I use my hands for this so I can distribute the garlic evenly throughout the grated cheese.
- Take one round of dough & lightly moisten 1 1/2 cm or 1/2 inch around the edge of the round with water using a pastry bush or your finger.
- Place 1/4 of the cheese mixture in an even layer in the centre of the round of dough, stopping at the moistened edge.
- Place another dough round on top and join together starting at one side, pushing out any air pockets as you go, pressing the edges to seal (see notes).
- Repeat to make 4 completed rounds.
- Heat a large non-stick fry pan over medium low heat.
- Brush one side of each flatbread round with melted butter and fry butter side down for 3 minutes, meanwhile brushing the second side with melted butter and then turn over and fry for another 3 minutes.
- Serve immediately.
