Homemade Pita Bread


1 packet quick rise yeast

1 cup very warm but not hot water

1 cup flour

1 teaspoon salt or to taste

1 3/4 cups flour

3 teaspoons olive oil

Ghee or olive oil for greasing the pan or griddle


In the bowl of your #kitchenAid stand mixer mix the packet of yeast with the very warm water and 1 cup of flour. Stir it and set aside in a warm place for 10-15 minutes till it gets frothy. Now add the olive oil, salt, 1 3/4 cup flour. Using your dough hook to mix the ingredients now add the flour a little at a time and mix using your dough hook for about 5 minutes till the dough is formed and not sticking to the sides. Place it in a well oiled bowl, cover it and set it aside in a warm place till it’s doubled in size. At this time you will punch it down to remove all the air bubbles and cut it into 8 equal parts. Set aside for 19 minutes. In the meantime heat your griddle or flat skillet. Roll out your rounds to form a flat pita and add your oil to your griddle and place your pita on it. When it bubbles turn it. Till it’s light golden. Serve warm and don’t forget to tag me in your re creations
