Bread, a staple of the daily diet, has a history intricately linked to human civilization. Among its myriad forms, ‘flat’ breads stand out due to their distinctive thinness, ranging from mere millimeters to a few centimeters in thickness.

These ancient breads, originating from varied parts of the world, have found their way from the Fertile Crescent to regions including North Africa, Southern Europe, the Middle East, the Anatolian peninsula, the Indian subcontinent, the Caucasian region, Xinjiang, and the Arabian Peninsula, with connections extending to the Horn of Africa. In the Americas, flatbreads are prevalent too, especially in Central and South America, and also among Native American communities.
