Pita Breads

You will need:
  • 300g whole wheat flour (I’ve used the french one: T110)
  • 180ml warm water
  • 15g fresh yeast
  • 1 teaspoon of cane sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil.

As usual in baking, mix the water and yeast together, and let sit for about five minutes until the yeast is dissolved. (to control the temperature of the water if you can put a finger in the water and it’s not “burning” it is fine) Then add the sugar. Set aside.

In another mixing bowl, add the salt. Cover with the flour. Adding the liquid (yeast+water), knead the dough for about 5-7 minutes, until the dough is smooth and elastic. Add finally the olive oil. Knead again.

Let the dough rise for about an hour (until it doubled). Divide the dough in 6 equal pieces. Let the pitas rise for another 10-15 minutes. In the meantime preheat your oven at 230°C. After that, using a floured rolling pin, roll the pitas (0,5cm thick)

Put the pitas in the oven at 230°C for about 10 minutes.

My recipe makes 6 pitas and you can of course freeze them. They are perfect for Vebabs!
