  • 225 g all-purpose flour
  • 125 ml warm water
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 25 ml olive oil or vegetable oil


  • In a stand mixer bowl attached with a dough hook, combine flour, warm water, baking powder, sea salt and olive oil.
  • Knead until the dough comes together into a smooth ball, about 3-5 minutes.
  • Cover the dough and let it rest for 15-20 minutes.
  • Divide the dough into 5 equal portions, about 75g each.
  • Line a piece of parchment paper on your workstation.
  • Roll the dough out onto the parchment paper with a rolling pin into a round, circular shape. (It's OK if it's not perfect).
  • Let the rolled out dough rest for 5 minutes.
  • Heat up a dry frying pan over medium heat.
  • Re-roll the dough thinly to stretch to 7-8" in diameter.
  • Transfer the parchment and place it dough-side down onto the frying pan. Peel off the parchment and let it cook for 1 minute, until puffed up.
  • Flip the dough with a spatula or pair of tongs and let it cook for another 30 seconds.
  • Remove the tortilla and place onto a wire rack with a clean kitchen towel (so that they remain soft).
  • Repeat with the remainder.


Yields 5 x 6" tortillas.
