Homemade Pita Bread
- 1 T. yeast
- 1 1/4 c. warm water
- 1 tsp. salt
- 3-3 1/2 c. flour
Put the yeast and water in a bowl, and let yeast sit and dissolve in for about 5 minutes. Add salt and 1 1/2 c. flour, and mix with the dough hook of an electric mixer. Keep adding flour until it forms a solid mass that's not too sticky. Knead for about 8 minutes until dough is smooth and elastic. Add more flour if it's too sticky to work with. Put dough on a floured surface, cut into 6-10 pieces depending on the size of pita you want. Form each piece into a ball, and then use a rolling pin to roll it out to about 1/4 inch. Let rest on floured surface for 30-40 minutes.
Flip upside down onto baking sheet, and bake 10-15 minutes.
As I said earlier, I'm having mine with the hummus I made :)
