Airy Tortillas Made with All-Purpose Flour & Yeast

These are airy and delicious tortillas! They're made with calzone batter and cooked in a frying pan. You can have fun filling them with various ingredients.

Ingredients: 6 tortillas

All-purpose flour
200 g
Olive oil
2 teaspoons
Coarse salt (or 1/4 teaspoon regular salt)
1/2 teaspoon
Parsley (dried)
2 teaspoons
130 g
Dry yeast
4 g
2 teaspoons
All-purpose flour
adjustment, dusting


1. Warm the milk to skin temperature. Add the dry yeast and sugar and let sit for 10 minutes.
2. Place olive oil, salt, and parsley into a bowl. Cover everything with the all-purpose flour.
3. Pour in half of the yeast mixture and mix roughly with your hands. Add the remaining yeast mixture and mix in completely.
4. Once it starts to form a ball, turn it onto the counter. Knead for 5 minutes while spreading out the dough. If it's too sticky, add a little flour.
5. Once it becomes smooth, form it into a ball and return to the bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and heat it in a double boiler for the first proof. (The dough should become 1.5 - 2x the original volume.)
6. Move the dough back to the counter and punch it down to remove the gas. Divide it into 6 portions with a knife. Form each portion into a ball and cover them with a damp cloth. Let sit for 15 minutes.
7. Roll each ball out thinly with a rolling pin. Heat both sides in a frying pan (without oil) on medium heat.
8. Roll up with your favorite fillings and enjoy!
9. I wrapped up some cheese, green lettuce, and tomatoes.

Story Behind this Recipe

My Turkish friend made tortillas with yeast, so I tried making them with dough from a calzone recipe that used yeast and cooked them in a frying pan. They turned out airy and delicious!
