These lovely little Marmite flatbreads are so easy to cook on the BBQ or in a griddle pan. Oozing with Marmite and vegan cheese, they are so more-ish!
🍴Why you will love this recipe
Cooking stuffed flatbreads on the BBQ is such a lovely thing to do - they are easy to make, and are such a great side-dish to serve alongside your main dishes and salads.
These Marmite flatbreads don't have to be cooked on the BBQ - they also cook beautifully in a hot griddle pan on the hob, or a dry frying pan.
If you're not a Marmite fan, don't worry - I've suggested lots of alternative fillings for these little grilled flatbreads below. Or you could make a selection in case your guests aren't Marmite lovers!
📝 What you need
Strong White Flour It is important to use proper bread flour with high gluten content to get a soft, fluffy bread. If you prefer you could use half-and-half white and wholemeal bread flour.
Instant Yeast can be added straight into the flour which makes bread-making easy, (rather than other types of yeast that need activating before adding to the dough).
Marmite is totally delicious in my opinion, but if you don't like it take a look at some of my suggested non-Marmite variations below.
Vegan Cheese gives a lovely oozy filling - I like Applewood Smoked Vegan Cheese, Violife Epic Mature or Ilchester Melting Mature which are all good for melting.

Mix the flour, yeast and salt in a large bowl. Add the water and olive oil and mix to a dough. Knead for 3-4 minutes until soft and smooth, then leave to rise for 45 mintues.
Divide into 6-8 equal balls, and roll each one out into a long, flat shape.
Drizzle with Marmite, scatter with a little vegan cheese and brush the edges with water.
Fold over, seal and re-roll. Cook for 1-2 minutes on each side on a BBQ or hot griddle pan or dry frying pan. Serve immediately.
If you don't like the sound of Marmite, you can use this flatbread recipe for all sorts of other fillings. How about:
- Pesto either shop-bought vegan pesto or make your own from my Vegan Pesto or Rocket Pesto recipes.
- Sun-dried tomato paste creates such a lovely filling with the vegan cheese.
- Passata gives a pizza-style flavour to the filling - a sprinkled of dried oregano is a great addition.
- Olive Tapenade is such a lovely flavour to stuff these flatbreads.
🔪 Top Tips & FAQs
Don't be tempted to over-fill the flatbreads. They only need a small amount of filling as they are rolled so thinly - if you add to much they will burst open when cooking.
You can keep the flatbreads soft by wrapping in a clean tea-towel when they have cooked.
Yes - they freeze best before cooking (rather than freezing the cooked flatbreads). When you have rolled out and stuffed the dough, lay the flatbreads on baking trays and freeze. As soon as they have frozen, transfer them to an airtight bag or container. You can cook them straight from frozen - they will just take an extra minute.
No, there are instructions for cooking them on the hob in a griddle pan or dry frying pan if you don't have the BBQ fired up.
