Servings 6 portions


  • 108 grams (3/4 cups) high grade flour
  • 65 grams (1/2 cup) spelt flour
  • ½ teaspoon fleur de sel
  • ¼ cup olive oil, plus extra, for drizzling
  • 1/3 cup (80 ml) warm water


  • In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients.
  • Add the olive oil to the bowl, stir with a spatula or a wooden spoon, and then slowly pour in the water, stirring as you go. Now, you can start working the dough with your hands.
  • Transfer the dough to a floured  surface and kneed it for 5 minutes, or untilit’s elastic. Add a bit more flour to the dough if it feels sticky (I didn’t have to add any, but I suspect it always depends on the temperature and/or humidity of the place you are in).
  • Divide the dough into 5 equal portions. Roll out each portion so that it’s about 32 cm (about 12.5 inches) long. Let it rest, covered with parchment paper, for 5 minutes at room temperature.
  • In the meantime, heat a large grilling pan over medium-high heat and lightly coat with olive oil.
  • When hot, but not smoking, add the flatbreads (I added one at the time since my pan wasn’t large enough to accommodate more than one unit)and grill them for 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
  • Serve right after cooking, drizzled with a little more olive oil and with an extra pinch of salt.
