I LOVE to make homemade pita bread! When served warm, it compliments any soup or stew...or you can cut it up and serve it with hummus. I have also made pita and used them as thick wrap sandwiches...yum!! This recipe is all over the internet but I adapt it and make it my own. :)
Homemade Pita Bread
(makes 10 small discs)
3 cups flour (white or whole wheat, or a mixture of the two is fine)
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon sugar or agave nectar
1 packet yeast (or, if from bulk, 2 teaspoons yeast)
1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cups water, roughly at room temperature
2 tablespoons olive oil
While the dough is resting, preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. If you have a baking stone, put it in the oven to preheat as well. If you do not have a baking stone, turn a cookie sheet upside down and place it on the middle rack of the oven while you are preheating the oven. This will be the surface on which you bake your pitas.
After the dough has relaxed for 20 minutes, spread a light coating of flour on a work surface and place one of the balls of dough there. Sprinkle a little bit of flour on top of the dough and use a rolling pin or your hands to stretch and flatten the dough.
You should be able to roll it out to between 1/8 and 1/4 inch thick. If the dough does not stretch sufficiently you can cover it with the damp towel and let it rest 5 to 10 minutes before trying again.
Open the oven and place as many pitas as you can fit on the hot baking surface. They should be baked through and puffy after 3 minutes.
It should start forming bubbles after about a minute of baking.
If you want your pitas to be crispy and brown you can bake them for an additional 3 to 5 minutes, but it isn’t necessary.
