Unleavened Bread Recipe

All of the bread above was made from a half batch of the recipe below. We rolled the bread on top about 1/8 inch thick and baked it on a metal cookie sheet. It has a chewy texture, sort of like pita bread but a bit denser. The bread below we rolled thinner and baked on a preheated pizza stone. It has a cracker-like texture. It tastes better than you might expect. Here is the recipe...

4 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup white flour
2 cups water
1/4 cup honey
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup oil

  1. preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. stir together ingredients, until dough is one smooth mass, elastic, and slightly sticky
  3. divide dough into four balls; sprinkle counter with flour, roll out to 1/8 inch thick
  4. score into about 1 inch squares
  5. bake for about 15 minutes (about 12 minutes on preheated baking stone)
  6. in the first minute of baking, prick bubbles that may form (or don't if you like bubbles)


  1. two things.
    1. i like the bubbles.
    2. you remind me of brian with this post. did you know that the first time he ever fasted he broke it on valentine's day with me after making bread and juice from scratch?

  2. Juice from scratch! That's a fantastic idea. Why didn't I think of that? Maybe I can get that done before our small group meets tonight. I also like the bubbles. They're always my favorite part of pizza crust.
