Pita. I consider pita as one of the most modest bread in the world. It doesn't required anything besides the ingredients themselves. No oven, No mixer. So simple that sometimes I ask myself why to buy and not just making them? This recipe is extremely easy, leaves no excuses not to do it right when you finish reading it. I usually use a flour mix of white & whole wheat. Personally I prefer the taste with the whole grain flour, but you can go with white flour only!

Step 3

Knead dough manually for about 7 to 10 minutes until smooth and sexy. If the dough is dry, feel free to wet your hands and the flour will absorb easily.

Step 4

Round and place the dough in a bowl and cover with a towel. Let the dough rest until nearly double the volume.

Step 5

Divide into 100-120 gr pieces. Round each piece into a perfect tight ball and let sit for 10 min, covered with a towel.

Step 6

With a rolling pin open the Pitas to 0.5 cm thick. Place the Pitas to proof on a towel for 20 minutes.

Step 7

Heat a large strong pan over medium heat for 3-5 minutes. Lower the heat to low-medium and bake the pita on the side that touched the towel before.

Step 8

After 10 seconds turn to the other side. Another 10 seconds and turn back. And this is how you play with the Pita until you get a stunning pocket.

Step 9

Move the pita to a basket / bowl covered with a towel that will avoid the Pita from drying and hardening.

Step 10

Fill the pita with any good and send me a pic!
