- 1/4 cup whole-milk yogurt
- 1/4 cup water
- Two 1-pound balls of pizza dough
- Nigella seeds, sesame seeds and flaky sea salt (optional), for sprinkling
How to make this recipe
Preheat the oven to 450°. In a small bowl, whisk the yogurt with the water.
On a large rimmed baking sheet, stretch and press 1 ball of the dough to a 14-by-5-inch rectangle. Using your fingers, press 5 to 6 deep lengthwise channels into the dough (slight tearing is okay). Brush the surface with some of the yogurt mixture and sprinkle with nigella and sesame seeds; season with salt, if using. Repeat on another baking sheet with the other ball of dough.
Bake the flatbreads for 20 to 25 minutes, until browned; rotate halfway through. Serve.
