How to Make Homemade Pita Bread

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 11 steps you must follow to make Homemade Pita Bread in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • To form the dough, mix the water and yeast together, let it sit for about 5 minutes until the yeast has dissolved.
  • Step 2
  • Add 2 1/2 cups of flour, (save the last half cup for kneading), salt, yeast mixture and olive oil. Stir until a shaggy dough forms.
  • Step 3
  • To knead the dough, sprinkle a little extra flour onto your clean work surface and turn out the dough. Knead the dough for about 5-7 minutes, until the dough is smooth and elastic. Add more flour as needed to keep the dough from sticking to your hands or surface, but try to be sparing. It's better to use less than a lot of flour. If you get tired of kneading stop and let the dough rest for a few minutes before finishing kneading.
  • Step 4
  • In a clean bowl, grease with a little olive oil. Set the dough in the bowl and turn it until its coated with olive oil. Cover with a clean dishcloth or plastic wrap and let the dough rise until its doubled in bulk, approximately takes 1-2 hours.
  • Step 5
  • After step 4, you can refrigerate the dough until its neaded. You can store the dough in the fridge for up to a week, you can use one or two dough balls at a time and continue to follow step 6.
  • Step 6
  • Gently deflate the dough and turn out onto a lightly floured work surface. Divide the dough into 8 pieces and flatten each piece into a thick disk. Sprinkle the pieces with a little more flour and then cover them with a kitchen towel or plastic wrap until ready to bake.
  • Step 7
  • Using a rolling pin, roll each piece individually into a 8-9 inches wide and about a quarter inch thick. Lift and turn the dough regularly as you roll to make sure the dough isn't sticking to the work surface. Sprinkle with a little extra flour if it starts to stick. If the dough starts to spring back, set aside for a few minutes, then continue rolling. Repeat the process with the other dough pieces.
  • Step 8
  • You can either bake the pita bread in the oven or on the stove. From this step you can chose either.
  • Step 9
  • To bake in the OVEN, while shaping the pitas, preheat the oven to 450f/gas mark 8/ 220c. If you have a baking stone, put in the oven to heat. If not place a large baking sheet in the middle rack to heat. Place the rolled-out pitas directly onto the stone/sheet as many as will fit on it and bake for 3 minutes. It'll start to puff up after a minute or so. The pita will be done when it's fully ballooned. Cover baked pitas with a clean dry dishtowel while cooking any remaining pitas.
  • Step 10
  • To bake on the STOVETOP, warm a cast iron over medium to high heat. Drizzle a little olive oil in the pan and wipe any excess. Lay a rolled-out pita on the skillet and bake for 30 seconds, until you see bubbles starting to form. Flip and cook for 1-2 minutes on the other side. Flip again and toast the other side for a further 1-2 minutes.
  • Step 11
  • The pita should start to puff up during this time. If it doesn't or only small pockets form, try pressing the surface of the pita gently with a clean towel. Keep the cooked pitas covered with a clean dry dish towel while cooking any remaining pitas.
