Homemade Pita Bread


My husband is into hummus & pita at the moment, it can add up, cost wise, if you buy copious amounts each week! I found this recipe from fifteenspatulars.com on Pinterest & thought I would give it a try

Well, The kids LOVED it, as did the hubby, so I think that it is safe to say that I probably won’t be buying pita bread again anytime soon

If you love pitas you should try to make them with this recipe, they are wonderful

  • 2 1/4 tsp Quick Rise Yeast
  • 1/2 cup + 1 cup Warm Water
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 17.5 oz (3.5 cups) All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 1/4 tsp Salt

In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the yeast, warm water & sugar, & allow to sit for 10 minutes until frothy

Add the flour, salt & 1 cup of warm water to the bowl. Mix until it forms a shaggy dough & use the dough hook on a low speed  for 10 minutes. The dough should be smooth & elastic

Cover the bowl with cling film/plastic wrap & allow to rise for 2 hours, until the dough has doubled in size & has yeasty stretch marks

Divide the dough into 10 pieces, & roll each into a ball. Cover & let rest for 10 minutes

Place an oven rack on the lowest shelf setting & place a baking sheet on top

Heat your oven as high as it will go. Mine goes to 500°F/260°C/Gas Mark 10

Roll each ball into a 6″circle with a rolling pin & cook 2 at a time on the baking sheet

Bake for 4 minutes on one side & 2 minutes on the other until puffed

Now you can serve your wonderful creation with anything you please!
