Pita Bread Recipe

Pita Bread Recipes

Ingredients :

1 x 7g sachet dried yeast

1.5 cups lukewarm water

1 tsp caster sugar

3.5 cups plain flour

2 tbsp olive oil

Method :

Place yeast, water and sugar in a medium bowl. Allow to stand in a warm place for 5 minutes or until frothy. Place flour, yeast mixture and oil in a food processor and process for 30 seconds or until mixture forms a ball. If not using a food processor place ingredients in a bowl and mix with a wooden spoon or with your hand until mixture forms a smooth dough. Turn dough onto a well-floured board and knead until smooth and elastic to touch. Place dough in a well-oiled bowl, cover with plastic wrap, then a clean tea-towel and stand in a warm place for 20 minutes or until dough has almost doubled in size.

Punch air from dough, divide into 12 equal portions. Roll each portion into a 5mm thick round. Place on greased baking trays and brush well with water. Stand and allow to rise for a further 20 minutes. Preheat oven to 250C. If dough rounds have dried, brush again with water. Bake for 4-5 minutes. The pita bread should be soft and pale in color, slightly swollen and hollow inside. Eat warm with kebabs or falafel or cool on wire racks and serve with salad.

Makes 12
