Taboon bread (Arabic: خبز طابون khubz tabun) or laffa (Arabic: لفة) is a Levantine flatbread. It is traditionally baked in a taboon oven or a tannur, and is similar to the various tandoor breads found in many parts of Asia. It is used as a base or wrap in many cuisines, and eaten with different accompaniments. It is of medium thickness, slightly chewy, and doesn't tear easily.

- Taboon bread is an important part of Palestinian cuisine, traditionally baked on a bed of small hot stones in the taboon oven. It is the base of Musakhan, often considered the national dish of Palestine. Over the centuries, bread-making in communal taboons played an important social role for women in Palestinian villages.
