Pita Bread Recipe
Yield: 20
Recipe Ingredients:
  • 1 cake compressed yeast, crumbled
    (or 1 packet active dry yeast)
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 cup lukewarm water
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt

Dissolve yeast and sugar in water. Sift the flour and salt together and add to the yeast. Knead dough well on lightly floured board.

Divide into 20 balls. Roll out each ball till 1/2-inch thick and about 5 inches across, on floured board. Cover and set to rise for 30 minutes.

Flatten each ball with rolling pin. Bake at 350 F/175 C for 12 minutes until puffed up and light brown.

Don't be upset when the pittot [pl of pitta] "fall," when cool. That's the way they should be!"
