Instructions to make Perfect Pita Bread:
- Put flour, yeast, salt, and sugar into bowl. Mix, then add oil and warm water. Mix with spoon or spatula until you can form dough into a ball..
- Dough should be a little moist but not super sticky. Add a little water at a time if needed. If you add too much, mix in more flour..
- When you have a knead-able dough, dust a surface with flour. Remove dough from bowl and knead for about 5 minutes with palm of hand..
- You want to form a smooth ball like this 🙂 When finished, grease a large bowl with a little oil, and put ball of dough in..
- Cover with wrap and let rise for about one hour in a warm spot until fluffy, about double in size..
- Preheat oven to 500F/260C. Meanwhile, remove puffy dough from bowl, squish out air, forming into a ball again..
- Separate into three even pieces..
- Roll out into about 5-inch/12-cm rounds on a floured surface..
- Lay out a baking sheet or lightly grease your baking pan. Lay out pitas on pan and let rest for 15 minutes, uncovered..
- Make sure your oven has had plenty of time to preheat; you want it hot! Put pitas on bottom rack (if you have one) and bake for 5-6 minutes. They should puff up, if not, let bake an extra minute. (if they don't puff up, the oven wasn't hot enough).
- Move pitas to the top or middle rack of oven and bake another two minutes to brown..
- Wrap in a kitchen cloth to keep soft until serving..
- Pitas are perhaps best filled with plenty of falafel 😉 I have some recipes for falafel posted in the story section above!.
