10 g


2 tbsp

Step by step

  1. This recipe makes 8 pita breads.

    Add the yeast, warm water and 150 g of the all-purpose flour to the bowl of the stand mixer.

  2. Insert the Wire Whip and mix on speed 2 until well combined. Let rest for 10 minutes in a warm place until small bubbles form at the surface.

  3. Add the salt, olive oil and remaining 270 g of all-purpose flour into the dough.

  4. Insert the Dough Hook to the stand mixer and knead the dough for 5 minutes.

  5. The dough should feel soft, supple and slightly sticky. It should pull away from the sides of the bowl easily. If the dough is too wet, add some extra flour 1 tablespoon at a time while kneading.

  6. Let rest in a warm place until it doubles in size (approx.2 hours).

  7. Press the dough down on a floured surface and cut in 8 pieces. Form each piece into a ball by pulling the dough down from the top and tucking it together on the bottom. Brush some olive oil over each dough ball. Cover with a towel and let rest for 30 minutes.

  8. Roll out each ball to approximately 0,5 cm thick and cook in a lightly oiled skillet.

  9. Flip the bread when it starts to puff up and get brown spots. Cook for a total of 5 minutes, flipping every minute.
