Pita Bread

You’ll be surprised at how much better they taste when you make them yourself.

Pita Bread

  • 1 Tablespoon of yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1  1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon  sugar
  • 1 cup lukewarm water

Sprinkle the yeast over the 1/2 Cup of warm water then sprinkle the sugar over the floating yeast so it all sinks to the bottom.  Allow to sit and ‘Bloom’ for 10-15 minutes, undisturbed.

In a separate bowl blend the flour and salt.


place flour mixture into your mixing bowl with a dough hook and add the yeast water and, slowly the remaining water. Knead for 10-15 minutes.

…but if you don’t have a mixer or bread maker…

When yeast has bubbled up,  make a depression in the flour mixture and pour in the yeast liquid.  Slowly stir in the remaining water until a sticky ball forms.  place onto a floured board and knead 10-15 minutes until smooth and elastic.

Cover and sit in a warm place for 2-3 hours, or until almost doubled.

Once doubled, roll the dough into a log and pinch off 10-12 balls.

Make sure your oven rack is at the bottom of the oven (1 rack only) Preheat your oven to 500. Preheat your pan, too…

Roll out each ball to about 6 inches wide and 1/4 inch thick, place on floured surface and let sit for 10 minutes.

Working quickly, place 3 or 4 rounds on the hot pan and slide it into the oven.  Bake for 4 minutes (until puffed) then turn over and bake for 2 minutes…No Peeking!…
