Pita Bread

7 Steps

  • Step 1

    In the bowl of a stand mixer, add the lukewarm water, yeast and sugar. Mix and let sit for about 10 minutes. Add the flour, olive oil and salt. With the hook attachment, knead until the dough comes together.

  • Step 2

    Transfer the dough to a working surface and knead the dough for about 5 minutes until smooth and elastic.

  • Step 3

    Place the dough in a greased bowl and cover it with a clean cloth. Let it rise for 1 hour or until doubled in size.

  • Step 4

    Punch the air out of the dough. Divide the dough into 4 equal portions. Roll each portion into a small ball. Cover with the towel and let sit for about 20 minutes. 

  • Step 5

    Roll each portion into a circle, about 1/4-inch thick. Cover again and let sit for another 20 minutes.

  • Step 6

    Heat up a non skillet pan over medium heat. Place one rolled dough at a time onto the pan. Cook on one side for about one minute. Flip and cook for another two minutes. Flip again and cook until the bread puffs up. 

  • Step 7

    Wrap the pita with a clean towel and cook the rest of the dough.
