Pita Bread

Publish Date: August 14, 2013

In a large bowl, combine warm water, oil, salt and sugar.

Add 1 cup of flour and yeast, and stir to mix. Add remaining flour. Move dough to d a floured surface, and knead into a soft dough.

Move the dough into a bowl and lightly oil the top. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and leave it in a warm place for about 1 hour. (Tip: heat your oven for a minute and switch off. Leave the dough in the warm oven for it to ferment.)

Remove dough from the bowl, and punch it down to remove the excess gas. Cut or tear the dough into 8 equal pieces. Form each piece into a ball, and on a lightly floured surface roll each ball into a 6 or 7 inch circle.

As you roll each of the pieces into circles, cover them loosely with a kitchen towel. Repeat. Cover all with the towel, and let sit for about 25-35 minutes, until slightly puffy.

Preheat oven to 500°F. On an oven-safe cooling rack or a wire rack, place 2 circles side by side. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 4-5 minutes until puffy and light brown.

Remove the rack and wrap the pita bread immediately in a damp towel and keep it covered. Repeat. Let cool completely before serving. Store in a zippered bag in fridge or freezer.
